Lamination overlays a microscopically thin layer of film on your printed material. This has several benefits:

  • Greater durability
  • Additional thickness gives more presence
  • 'Soft-touch' finish (matt and velvet laminates) for an attractive texture

Such is the demand for lamination that we've equipped ourselves to meet almost all requirements in-house. Our D&K Europa laminator processes up to seven metres per minute and handles a range of laminate types including:

  • Gloss
  • Matt
  • Satin
  • Velvet
  • Biodegradable gloss and matt


Encapsulation/Lanyard example

Encapsulation is a weather-proof tamper-protected format that is particularly good for event passes and credentials. It's much more durable than lamination and features a sealed lip of plastic all around the printed material. Our personalisation systems enable us to produce individually named cards with photos if needed. We can add lanyards or clips to order.
