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

If you need lamination or encapsulation for already printed documents, please bring them to us. Depending on the quantity and size we can either do them on the spot, or you can collect them later when ready. If you need printing and laminating/encapsulating, please email us your documents together with your specification. We need to know:
  • 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 will come back to you with a quote. Please, note that an order is considered placed only after the payment has been received. You can arrange the payment in person, over the phone or online.

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.

Laminating & Encapsulating Services in Central London

Welcome to our Central London print shop, your go-to destination for top-tier laminating and encapsulating services. Conveniently located just a  5 minute walk from Kings Cross train and tube station, we specialise in protecting, enhancing, and preserving your important documents and artwork.

Distinguishing Laminating and Encapsulating

Laminating and encapsulating are two distinct methods used to protect and preserve documents, but they differ in their approach and the level of protection they offer.

Laminating involves applying a thin layer of plastic film on either side of a document, effectively covering it within two sheets. This process enhances the document’s durability and can provide some level of water resistance, making it ideal for general protection against wear and tear.

Encapsulating, on the other hand, takes this a step further by completely sealing the document in a plastic envelope. This method not only covers the front and back of the document but also extends to the edges, creating a completely waterproof and airtight seal. Encapsulation is therefore more suitable for documents that require robust protection from the elements, such as outdoor posters or frequently handled materials, as it offers a higher level of preservation and durability compared to standard laminating.

Lamination and Encapsulation Options

Laminating is essential for shielding your documents against everyday wear and tear. Our services encompass a range of sizes from A6, A5, A4 laminating to larger print laminating and encapsulating such as A3, A2, and A1. Whether it’s a single page or multiple documents, our team is ready to provide you with the highest quality lamination, ensuring your items remain pristine and durable.

Choose from our diverse lamination options. For documents up to A3 size, we offer both thick and thin gloss laminating films, along with a thin matt option for a more subdued finish. Larger documents, including A2 and A1 sizes, are meticulously encapsulated with a high-quality thin gloss film, offering robust protection and a professional look.

Encapsulation Services for Enhanced Durability and Appeal

Encapsulating your documents and posters not only provides a waterproof seal but also significantly enhances their colours and extends their lifespan. This service is ideal for outdoor use and repeated handling, ensuring your materials stay vibrant and intact in various conditions.

Same-Day and 24-Hour Turnaround Times

We understand the importance of time, which is why we offer same-day laminating services depending on the size and volume of your documents. For larger or more voluminous orders, we offer a 24-hour turnaround, ensuring your needs are met with speed and efficiency.

Central London Collection and Delivery Options
