Thermal & Cold Lamination
Thermal and cold lamination; let’s start with the first definition. If you wish to protect a large-format print from moisture, fingerprint oil, and such, you would coat the sheet with film laminate.
You could cover one side of the poster printing run with film, or you could even cover both, the back and front with separate sheets, effectively sealing the custom printing paper completely into a plastic pouch of sorts.
This is what is done with some restaurant menus and plate mats since they receive rough treatment and endure multiple spills. Basically, there are two types of lamination such as thermal and cold film,
Thermal process film adhered to the paper on the basis of heat where cold process works on such as one side with adhesive or glued while laminating. the cost per square inch come higher but the best option for quality lamination. for better lamination product is also the part of quality printing as well as during printing job have to control powder in proper order otherwise lamination not adhered to the paper properly.
