What Is Gloss Lamination?

Is gloss lamination right for your book printing project?

Gloss lamination refers to the thin plastic layer you can add to the cover of your printed book. It helps to reduce the impact of spills and stains, helping to keep your cover looking its best.

As you can see above, gloss laminate gives your book a shiny look with a soft, smooth feel. Gloss helps to make the colours shine a little more than matt laminate. This is perfect for books with bright, colourful cover designs.
