Technical Tip…

Question: What’s the difference between ‘Encapsulation’ and ‘Lamination’?
Answer: Encapsulation is the process of placing artwork between two sheets of heat activated clear film, which is then fed through two heated rollers. The heat activates the glue in the film and sticks the ‘sandwich’ together. Encapsulation can be left with a clear film border, making it watertight and so is useful for outdoor work. Lamination film is applied to only one side of the artwork. It is a sticky film that requires no heat. It is much thinner than encapsulating film and is available in matt, gloss and sand textured finishes.
