Laminating and Encapsulating
Lamination and Encapsulation London
Laminating and encapsulating are an ideal way to protect your documents. Laminating applies a thin layer of plastic coating to the paper while encapsulating completely seals the paper in a slightly thicker plastic.
We offer laminating and encapsulating service for documents of A6, A5, A4 and A3 size as well A2 and A1 lamination and encapsulation.
For documents up to A3 size we can offer standard 200 micron (100 on each side) gloss encapsulation.
Documents up to A3 size can also be laminated with thin matt laminate.
For sizes bigger than A2 we offer gloss lamination.
The turnaround on lamination and encapsulation depends on the size of the document and on the volume. Small amounts of A4 and A3 laminating can be done on the spot.
Larger sizes or bigger amounts are normally ready in 24 hours.
You can collect your laminated documents from our Central London printing centre.
We also offer a same day courier service to London postcodes or standard delivery service to the rest of the UK. Please, contact us for a delivery quote.

Laminating / Encapsulating More Details
- how you would like your documents printed
- if you need laminating or encapsulating
- if you need thin or thick laminating film (up to A3 size)
We laminate documents up to A3 size.
Laminating involves sealing a thin sheet of clear plastic to the front and/or to the back of a sheet of paper or card so the entire surface of the stock is covered in the laminated plastic. The laminating film is trimmed to the end of the paper or card. Laminating protects the print from handling and splashes. We can laminate documents up to A3 size using a thin matt laminating film.
We encapsulate documents up to A1 size.
Encapsulation is very similar to lamination but the plastic extends beyond the edge of the paper sealing it completely. Encapsulation protects the documents and makes them waterproof. We offer thick gloss encapsulating film (200 micron) and thin gloss encapsulating film for documents up to A3 size. Documents up to A1 size are encapsulated with thin gloss film.
Absolute life-saver! Amazing same day service and very nice and helpful staff. Had an A0 poster printed and ready to pick up within 4 hours. And it came sealed in a fitted plastic bag, so the rain didn’t damage it.
Would definitely recommend and use again in the future!
Thank you very much!
Very happy with my business card, I send them my design and they advised that my file seems a bit blurry, I am happy they checked because many other companies print without advising. I edited my file and it was printed in 2 hours so thank you for that.
Really efficient and conveniently placed! Staff is really friendly and helpful (i’m not a paper and binding professional and they gave me some great piece of advice regarding a portfolio I had to make in a very short period of time!) Will come back for sure
Very professional and accomodating, I had a last minute request and staff were so helpful. They saved my presentation day!!!
I printed and bound my portfolio in Nevex. I liked that they checked my document before printing and recommended few changes. The card which I chose was really good and I was happy with the printing too.
