Laminate Information & Research
Our lamination method is supported by data from a clinical study of lamination formats. (Click here to read more about that
study.) We print our cards on heavy weight, environmentally sound papers (not card stock which can peel away from the
laminate). We use a 5 mil laminate that extends just to the edge of the cards (not beyond) and we round the corners (to
eliminate the tactile distraction of "pokey" corners and to add to their longevity).
Based on the results of the lamination study, we recommend the following lamination procedures:
|use 5 mil laminate (pouch or roll)|
|round the corners on all cards, preferably using a corner rounding machine (available as a hand punch at craft stores |
|or as a manual stack corner rounder such as the Diamond 1 or the CR-20 which can be found at many Internet stores)|
|paste or print material on heavy weight paper (32 lb.) NOT card stock (card stock tends to pull away from the |
|laminate; it does not adhere well and will have a shorter life than paper cards)|
When you laminate, we recommend leaving a cm or so of extra laminate around the edges of the cards. This will improve their
durability and longevity.
