This produces a high gloss finish on card and provides good protection against damage as it is normally water proof. The printed card is placed inside a plastic film/sleeve. It is then placed in the ‘in tray’ of a laminating machine which pulls the card and film through its heater and rollers. The heater warms up the film almost to melting point and the rollers press the film sleeve until it is sealed. When the card reappears in the ‘out tray’, the finished item looks glossy and professional. However, laminating is much more expensive than varnishing but gives more protection to the card. Laminated card is used for items such as menus in a restaurant. A menu will be constantly handled by customers and staff and it is important that it is protected. Laminating
Corrugated card Corrugated fiberboard is a paper-based material consisting of a fluted corrugated sheet and one or two flat linerboards. It is widely used in the manufacture of corrugated boxes and shipping containers; using "flute lamination machines".fluted The corrugated medium and linerboard are made of containerboard, a paper-like material usually over 0.01 inches (0.25 mm) thick. Corrugated fiberboard is sometimes called corrugated cardboard, although cardboard might be any heavy paper-pulp based board. containerboardcardboard Packaging engineers design corrugated boxes to meet the particular needs of the product being shipped, the hazards of the shipping environment, (shock, vibration, compression, moisture, etc.), and the needs of retailers and consumers.
