Laminated plastic cards

Laminating the cards enhances their durability and resilience against damage. Moreover, applying a suitable laminate can enhance the visual appeal of the card’s graphic design.

Why laminate?

The cards are made of plastic, most often PVC or polyethylene. Our offer also includes eco friendly cards made of recycled material. Plastic cards made of PVC are already very durable, but double-sided lamination adds extra protection, safeguarding the print from abrasion.

Additionally, the laminate also protects the cards against fading of the print colors, especially when the cards are often exposed to sunlight. The laminate also has a decorative function, it makes the print on the card more attractive by giving it a shiny or matte effect. The laminate, of course, is transparent and does not change the colors of the print on the card.

The laminated cards offered by our company meet the national and international quality standard specifying the parameters of laminated plastic cards – ISO 7810.

Laminates available

We offer three types of laminates for plastic cards:

  • glossy laminate
  • silk matte laminate
  • rugged matte laminate

The choice of laminate type depends on the effect you want to achieve on the card. The glossy laminate emphasizes and ‘enlivens’ the colors on the card. It is a good choice for cards with a lot of graphics, such as cards with a sophisticated graphic design or photo.

Matte laminates are often chosen to emphasize the exclusivity of the cards. Luxurious business cards and VIP cards are often covered with a matte laminate.

It is possible to use different laminates on the front and back, for example, glossy on the front and matte on the back of the card.
