We offer Gloss or Matt lamination for the cover of your books. Digitally printed covers are liable to marking during handling so lamination is highly recommended to prevent this.

Gloss vs Matt Lamination
Many people don’t consider lamination to be an important part of their book, it is normally pushed to the side and is a last minute thought. But lamination is something that people should really consider when sending their book to print.
Lamination gives your books more protection from damages that may occur and it gives the book a much nicer look and feel.
Gloss lamination: the pros
- Gives your cover a deeper, cleaner and crisper look to the colours and lines
- Brightens up the cover
- Easy to clean
Gloss lamination: the cons
- Prone to finger marking and scratches.
Matt lamination: the pros
- Gives a book a more professional and sophisticated look
- More resistant to scuffs and scratches
- Less reflective – gives a more natural look
Matt lamination: the cons
- Prone to stains and spills
- Can give the colour a dull look
