Lamination is the best way to protect and preserve your documents from wear and tear or deterioration. Documents that are kept un-laminated end up tearing due to frequent folding and thanks to lamination you don’t have to worry about that. Not only does it prevent the documents from tear, it also preserves the originality, protects them from water damage and increases the rigidity of the documents.
6 tips on how to laminate professionally:
Always use a high-quality laminator
The difference between a high-quality laminator and a low-quality one can easily be detected on the documents. If you want lamination that will leave you smiling and keep your customers coming back, then the Ultima 65 laminator is the way to go.
Use a good printer
When printing documents, you need to make sure you are using a good printer that produces high-quality images/documents since you will need to laminate them in future. In addition, ink levels should be checked before printing.
Choose the right paper
The paper you choose when printing your documents should be of the right thickness, and quality i.e. photos should be printed using photo papers.
The item to be laminated should always be inserted into the pouch
The first thing you need to do when laminating is inserting the item into the pouch before it’s sealed by the laminator. After it’s laminated, you should remove it immediately and let it cool.
Avoid using thermal paper
Most laminators use heat to seal documents, and thermal paper melts when put in a laminator. The end result is your paper becomes black.
Always put documents in the right sized pouch
Not all documents fit in the same pouch; cards should first be laminated then the excess film can be cut of later.
