Laminating Process

There's actually a few kind of lamination. The one that I'm showing is glossy lamination and matting lamination. The difference is glossy surface is like the photography paper. A shiny layer on the artwork, normally applies to leaflet, brochure, paperbags and etc's. Matting is a smoother surface, this normally applies to packaging, greeting cards.

Figure 1: The roll of mat is being run through the machine to apply the glue and then run under the heat together with the artwork. It is to dry up the glue and also to prevent bubble of aire caught in between the the artwork and lamination.

Spot UV

Spot UV is applied to a particular space in the artwork that need special treatment.
Artwork that needed Spot UV needs a silkscreen frame to be exposed on according to the shape.

Figure 6: Silkscreen is being exposed with the machine. The duration of exposure depend on how big the artwork is.
Figure 7: Frame that is being exposed can be used for Spot UV
Figure 8: The particular space on the artwork that needed Spot UV is being applied

Figure 9: Sample of Spot UV, the shiny part is known as Spot UV while the rest of the artwork has no Spot UV

Figure 10: For those that needed the whole artwork being exposed, is run under this machine.

Where by this does not need to have silkscreen. Silkscreen is only used when small space of the artwork need special treatment(Spot UV).


Heading to the diecut warehouse

Die Cutting

Diecut is the shape of the boxes or cards that need to be cut and fold.
