How is it done?   Why laminate?   What is Gallery Lamination for?   Who is it for?    How much does it cost? 

Q and A’s -


ANSWER - Looks simple. But, there are

many, many steps involved to create a

Custom Gallery Lamination just for you!

The process takes us about 2 weeks!

Our lamination process provides your print,

photo or document a virtually “invisible” layer

of protection with our Premium Ultra Clear

Smooth Lamination. Our lamination is not

cloudy or hazy. Our lamination is not the shiny

plastic encapsulation you put on school papers.

Our lamination does not have an orange peel

effect. It is not Museum Mounting.

Our lamination is expertly applied to your

document. Our Gallery Lamination is the

perfect solution for displaying and custom

“framing” your document, photos and

treasures without Glass or Plexi.

Details - How is it done?

Select from:                                                                

Matte (Non-Reflective) -  True dead matte non-glare. Smooth finish.                

Satinex - Slight shimmer pops & enhances colors. Slight texture.                    

Canvas Texture - Gives your item canvas appearance. Heavy texture.

Why Laminate?

ANSWER - Because of the advantages of our process offers you over traditional framing.

What’s really important is not just how it looks right when you get it, but how it will look in the years to come. Perhaps

you’ve had this experience - you get your poster framed, spent all this money and in less than a year, it is showing signs

of aging, wrinkling inside the frame under the glass or worse your frame is sagging. Lamination prevents and eliminates

this sort of damage. The lamination applied in our process does not allow air between the surface of your image and the

lamination film. It will look fantastic for years to come.

What is Gallery Lamination for?

ANSWER - Most anything paper you would

like to display or preserve. Wall decor and

more! Think outside of the “frame”!

Think about this - what does framing do for


It allows you to take a favorite picture, poster

or whatever and put it up on the wall. Yes, it

will accomplish the meager task of being able

to put your picture on the wall, on the desk...

but there is so much more! Lamination allows

you to “frame” the usual items and the

freedom to use your imagination and frame

things you never thought you could or would.

COST COMPARISON -                                                                                                                              

Odd sizes don’t cost more & Spending more does not mean you get more.                                            

Our pricing is made up of size categories and lamination styles.                                                                        

Cost is determined by measuring your document & rounding up - length x width = surface area.                                                 

For instance these sizes cost the same:                                                                                                                 

8” x 10” = 80 square inches (a traditional size)                                                                                                      

7 1/8” x 10 5/8” = 76  square inches (a custom size)                                                                                           

The product you select determines the cost.                                                                                                    

With the exception of adding options you may like, it is as simple as that.
