Glossy lamination refers to a method in which a thin gloss film is laminated on the printed surface to protect and enhance the paper surface.
There are a number of functions performed by a glossy lamination, and some of these include:
- Add more shine to the photos and background color on the surface.
- Add a protective layer to the surface and create a shield against water damage.
- Prevent chance of color damage during the process of binding.
- Protect the book spine of thicker books from getting damaged.
