Laminating & Encapsulating




Why Laminate or Encapsulate?

A real must for any exhibition and display media, its idea also for posters, maps, display artwork.  Using the GBC Spire III Laminator and LexJet brand products, our process is the finest available. We offer several thickness of lamination. 3 Mil, 6 Mil, and 10 Mil. Matte, Glossy or Luster surfaces, which offer added scuff and UV protection, lasting usage and can even be rolled-up easily when required for transport.  We also offer dry wipe finish and anti-vandal laminates. (Please contact us or call us at 310.876.3933 for pricing.)

Please note: Lamination can only be done on glossy prints, so the entire surface of them laminator comes in contact with the photo's surface. Lamination of a matte surface print results in an undesirable orange peel effect. 

What's the difference between Lamination and Encapsulation?

Lamination involves applying a thin layer of plastic to one side of the photo, which protects the photo's finish as well as making it more resiliant to harsher-than-normal environmental factors. Encapsulation occuers when the plastic sheeting is applied to both the front and the back of the photo, in order to seal the edges. 

When a poster is encapsulated, it is laminated on both sides and normally has an edge seal, which means you can use the poster outdoors, even in the rain. Laminated posters, on the other hand, has the lamination film applied to only the front of the poster and therefor is not as durable as an encapsulated print.


We take the utmost care to offer you the highest quality materials, including acid-free mats, backing boards and mounting tissues, combined with an unrivaled level of personal service in order to ensure your mounted prints will boast the longevity they deserve.  Call us today @ 310.876.3933 to set-up an appointment.
