Now let’s talk about the lamination process.
The lamination process is to cover the surface of the printed matter with a plastic film, and use an adhesive to bond it together after heating and pressing to form a processing technology that combines paper and plastic.

Today’s high-end carton packaging and handbags The process development after printing will choose lamination, which can not only effectively prevent smearing, but also prevent the packaging carton from getting wet in a limited way. Therefore, the lamination technology is still very useful, but it is still necessary to design these different products. According to different processes to choose, the appropriate is better.
