Matte or Gloss Lamination


We understand lamination types are things only printers should worry about but recently, we have been asked by customers what type of lamination is better, whether matte lamination or gloss lamination. The simple truth is you can never go wrong with matte lamination. While gloss lamination has its own advantages and certain projects such as posters and other wider surface prints are better with gloss lamination. Matte wins all the the time. Matte laminations adds a feel of luxury to prints and you can easy write on a matte laminated card with a ball point pen. Matte lamination also reduce the possibility of glare. We don’t know how true this is but we have heard that gloss laminated projects usually look cheap. We always advice customers to go with matte lamination options for print project. As we have discovered, YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH MATTE.
