About Us
A lot is often said about how things ‘look and feel’. We know the importance of both. We’ve worked for years perfecting a tactile side to print. Sight and touch, image and texture. What’s underneath and on the surface. The technical term for it is laminate, but it’s more than that. It’s about how print can feel and how it makes you feel. It’s a protective layer, and an added texture. It’s a gloss finish or a peach skin. We say do judge a book by its cover, take things on face value. Look, then give your eyes a rest and feel.
Classic
The Pristine range of roll laminate is a premium grade low-melt roll film formulated from co-polymer resins. This transparent film is the film of choice for most trade finishers and print shops. Pristine laminate is available in gloss or matt finishes on 25, 57 and 76mm cores. Our Pristine range of films have excellent bonding properties, especially designed for laminating litho print. As well as giving a high quality finish, your print is also enhanced. High surface tension means this is suitable for spot UV varnishing and other post laminate processes.
