No matter what the occasion may be, a laminated print can create a sharp and professional feeling. However, there are some inevitable environmental issues involved with the use of traditional lamination. In this blog, we will be sharing our top reasons why Biodegradable Laminated Print is a smart choice for your printing needs.

What Is Lamination:

Lamination is usually used to create a refined look and protect the printed piece beneath it. It acts as a wrapper around the original piece of paper. You can choose whether you would like one side laminated or both.

You may remember laminated school ID’s or those pouches that you would place your paper in and then process through a machine to give it a stocky yet protected cover.

We are glad to say that we have a more refined method today that allows us to construct beautiful pieces that look enchanting.

While lamination has been used with plastic in the past, we have decided to make a switch! Here is why.

The Future of Our Planet:

There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic waste estimated to be in our oceans. 269,000 tons float, 4 billion microfibers per km² dwell below the surface.

Our response to this is to simply cut down on the plastic we produce.

Biodegradable lamination offers the same exact look and feel, without harming our waterways and wildlife.

And, once it is gone, it is completely gone – without leaving any contaminants in the earth.

The Perfect Look:

There is no disputing that, whether you’re sending out you save the dates, flyers for your next event or something a bit more bespoke, you want your pieces to be high quality.
