Lamination & Coatings

You have one opportunity to make a first impression. Let Lamco give you the edge you need to stand out amongst the rest.

Lamination & Coatings

Lamination turns an item into an attractive and polished printed piece that will grab attention. Although lamination does make a product look more brilliant, the greatest benefit of lamination is the long-term results. Through lamination, your printed materials have a stronger durability and additional protection from scratching, fading or smudging. Lamination extends the life of your materials, enabling you to make a long-lasting impression.

Types of Lamination Available:

Lamination makes your project more resistant to tears, protects the ink, and delivers a strong visual appeal.  Find out what types of lamination are available for your project below:

    • Gloss
    • Matte
    • Satin
    • Soft Touch
    • Specialty Laminates (Low Tac, High Tac, Barrier Film, Black Film, etc.)

One-sided lamination

What you should know about one-sided lamination is that it’s a delicate process that requires exceptional skill to accomplish. The process involved a sheet-fed overlapping process, which requires a minimum of a ½” around all four sides of your sheet (3/4” on larger sheets and light weight paper stocks). These margins must be free of all inks or coating to create a secure adhesion. As the high-speed laminator applies the lamination, a mechanical wheel marks a horizontal perforation across the sheet. The nature of the film in weaker horizontally than it is vertically. Meaning, the perforation causes the sheet to snap and separate from the following sheet.

    • Film thickness available: 1.3 and 1.7 mil
    • Minimum sheet size: 9”x12”
    • Maximum sheet size: 28”x40”
    • Desired paper stock: 80# Text or heavier, 100# text or heavier on larger sheets
    • Maximum speed: 210 feet per minute

 

Two-sided lamination

What you should know about two-sided lamination is that it is the most popular form of laminating. For this type of lamination, you can choose between a flush or seal trim. To produce a seal trim, provide a finished sheet to Lamco and we will laminate with your choice of lamination thickness and leave 1/8”-1/2” seal. With our specialized equipment, we have the ability to provide flush trim on either an oversized press sheet or a finished size press sheet.

    • A cleaner edge is created when an oversized press sheet is provided and trimmed after lamination.
    • Film thickness available: 1.3, 1.7, 3.0, 5.0 and 10.0 mil.
    • Minimum sheet size:  2 x 3 (for automatic feed)
    • Maximum sheet size:  28 x 40 (for automatic feed)
    • Stock of paper:  to be determined based on sheet size  (20# bond – 24pt.)
