a key process in printing production that is as important as bindery. Consider it a finishing process that adds a dimension of strength, durability and veneer to printed pieces.
Laminating protects printed materials from cracking and chipping, tearing, weathering, handling abuse and spills. In the retail industry, laminating adds a layer of reflectivity (gloss laminating), or dull coating (matte laminating) that pulls visual attention to your message.
Lamination is not only a solution, it's a process that involves elements of design and production. We work with designers, production artists, printers and others who depend on Arrow Laminating Industries, Inc. to provide expert services that mixes reliability with high production values. Our philosophy on working with our clients is that 'collaboration is key', and that the first step in the process is to listen. We look forward to working with you on your next lamination project!
