In our latest blog, we take a look at the benefits of gloss lamination versus matte lamination to finish off your print project.
When our customers ask us what kind of lamination to go for on their print project we would always say that it depends on the project!
While matte laminate gives a subtle and tactile look and feel to brochures, book covers and business cards which is preferred for certain projects, gloss laminate gives a more striking high-shine finish.
Gloss laminate is also more durable and provides a protective coating which is less prone to scratches and fingerprints and is great for use on printed items such as menus, magazine covers and presentation folders which are likely to be handled frequently.
The gloss lamination process increases the vibrancy of colours so is a good choice for photographic designs to really make the most of high quality photography or very visual, brightly coloured or stylised artwork.
The shine of the gloss also catches the light and certainly means that gloss lamination is the more eye-catching, impactful option to the more low-key and professional matte laminate.
Here are some recent print projects where we have used gloss lamination:
