The Service Bureau offers: Lamination, Buttons & Magnets, Grommets, Stapling, Folding, Hole Punching, Bulk Cutting, & Collating
Our laminator uses a process called Glossy Encapsulated Lamination.
Encapsulation is very similar in look and feel to lamination except the finished result has the telltale extra margin of heat-sealed plastic extending beyond the edge of the paper. It has a gloss finish and the process gives the printed item a significant extra thickness.
*With our process you can cut to the edge of the media and it will stay sealed.
We no longer offer sheet lamination. All jobs are done on a continuous roll. You job will be rough cut meaning it will be in separate sheets. All fine cutting will be done by the customer. For large orders over 20 sheets your job will be provided in rolls and will need to be cut down individually by the customer.
$1.00 – 8.5″ x 11 area
$2.00 – 11″ x 17 area
*Width must be 11″ or less
*Lamination is an irreversible process. It is recommended to make copies of irreplaceable files before having them laminated.
Not recommended for fine art photography.
