Protection from UltraViolet (UV) radiation is a key step in making sure prints can stand the test of time. Framing and glazing is one solution to this, but for some applications, prints can be laminated with UV film to offer protection against handling, dust, and of course, UV light.
Film over-lamination is an option used to protect photographs that are displayed without traditional framing and glazing. The film lamination process combines pressure-sensitive distortion-free adhesives with optically clear PET film, and applies them directly to the face of the print. This acid-free PET film does not compromise or alter the color of your prints, and the material is thin and flexible to reduce added bulk. Overall, a film laminate adds depth and crisp detail in an assortment of finishes, such as matte, luster, and glossy.
The surface can also be protected with a face mounted acrylic plexiglass in a number of finishes. The type of paper used in this process matters for the best results.
