Laminating means sandwiching materials together ~ a hard surface on top of a wooden table top ~ gluing several strips or sheets of wood together ~ covering a book with leather could be called laminating. In this part of our shop we deal with clear, sticky, films designed to protect a card or paper surface. 

Laminating film is available is several forms. By the metre from a roll ~ cut to size ~ pre-cut, pre-shaped double sheets. Hot seal laminates require a machine, and are usually cut to convenient sizes for encapsulation. Cold seal laminates are usually more expensive. Small items can be sandwiched conveniently between two films which are joined along one edge. These pouches are available in the hot or cold variety.
