Laminating is the process of placing two protective clear films over the front and back of the poster. The lamination provides protection against fingerprints, smudges or other items that can damage or fade the poster.02. Can any poster be laminated?
Any poster can be laminated and it is an inexpensive way to protect the poster. However, laminating a poster is a permanent process and cannot be undone. So we recommend not laminating posters that are very valuable or are collectible in nature.03. Can I frame a laminated poster?

Laminating not only gives your poster a beautiful gloss finish, it also protects your poster from virtually anything that it could come in contact with. When framing is not an option, laminating your poster is the next best thing!05. How are laminated items shipped?
If your poster is only laminated, it will most likely be shipped rolled to reduce the shipping cost to you.06. Can I return a laminated item?
