Lamination is a protective film that sticks to the label. It protects the ink from scratches, fading, environmental influences, etc. It looks like a clear tape and can enhance the label graphics. High gloss lamination is an option for labels that need to shine. Matt lamination gives the label a muted, subtle, elegant look. Outdoor lamination is best used for labels that will be used outdoors. It has a high gloss finish with UV resistance.
