Laminating

Lamination is a thin plastic coating used to alter the surface feel and add protection to a printed item. There's 3 main types of lamination Matt, Gloss and Soft touch. Soft touch is relatively new, has such a delicate feel but can also be very costly for a larger run. 


We emboss in-house on our Heidelberg Letterpress using special Dies to achieve this finish. A softer material will achieve a better indent.
