Lamination: Why, How, When

Why: Whether you’re using an aqueous or solvent-based inkjet printer, there are several good reasons to laminate your digital graphics. Overlaminate film and liquid laminates protect your graphics from abrasion, chemicals, and UV exposure. With solvent, ecosolvent, and thermal resin prints, UV exposure isn’t the main problem because the resins are engineered to last for three to five years outdoors without lamination. However, abrasions, detergents, and the weather can rub or wash the pigment off of the prints. You need protection.

When: Any printed graphic installed in an environment in which the final product will be washed, driven, or exposed to dirt and debris should be laminated.
