Laminating

 Once mounted we can protect the printed face, by machine applying a clear  lamination  film, either MATT or GLOSS finish.

We offer cold & hot laminating options  in a variety of options

 Foamboard (known as foam centre).

Gloss

 Matte

 Non-Slip

 Sandtex

 Anti-Graffiti

 UV protective for 5-7 years externally

Our large format laminators are able to laminate to 1500mm wide.

Edge Trimming

 Edging can also be applied to a mounted board  for both protection and decorative  purposes.

 For Foamboard an in-expensive tough plastic edge strip can be applied, available in  black.  Foamboard hangers available as an option.

 Also available is an Aluminiuim Edge frame in brushed silver, complete with hanging  brackets,  this type of frame being mostly suited to more  permanent wall mounted  boards.

Encapsualtion

 Plastic Encapsulation is the method of hot heat sealing a paper original  between two layers of  clear film.

 We can encapsulate any original up to 40 inches wide by any length (which  covers all paper sizes  up to A0.)

 As standard we use a heavier constructed medium weight film for large  format originals – it  lays flatter and greatly reduces the risk of  damage to  even very lightweight papers.

 Encapsulated prints can be rolled for storage or easy transportation, we  also offer two fixing  options of, Self Adhesive Velcro tape or Window  suckers.
