Laminating

Covers all the bases from enhance, protect and inspire

Laminating isn’t an afterthought. It’s not just about the protecting your artwork. Consider it an integral part of the finished article. Colours take on a new depth and vibrancy, clients love the tactile nature of a soft touch lamination and when you combine it with a foil block for example you get something out of the ordinary in return.

When you want your artwork to make an impression, laminating isn’t just the final stage in a print job, at Windmill we like to think it’s integral.

Colours take on a new depth, clients love the tactile nature of a soft touch laminate and when you combine it with a foil block you get something out of the ordinary.

There’s an art to lamination. It’s more than just protection against colour fade or scratches, it’s about depth and intensity too. Let us show you what you can achieve; Enhance, protect and stand out from the crowd. We think you’ll be hooked.
When it comes to beautifully laminated reports, brochures, business cards, labels or point-of-sale material, Windmill Printing have got it covered.

The Windmill Approach


Lamination is a thermal film that is applied to sheets, giving a gloss, silk or matt finish. Soft touch lamination is available, also known as velvet lamination. Foil can be applied on top of lamination.

See more examples of Laminating in the showcase.
