Laminating is an inexpensive way to protect maps, drawings, aeronautical and nautical charts, the output from pen plotters, posters - in fact, just about anything. We use a 3-mil two-sided laminate which allows you to roll, or even fold your maps after they have been laminated. 1 mil = 0.0001 of an inch.
You can write on the laminate with water-based markers and remove the writing later, if you want, with a damp cloth. Don't use the dry-erase markers; they don't come off!
Hot Roll Laminating
Our hot-roll laminating machine, one of the largest in Canada, can handle up to 59 inches wide and up to any length.
Our laminating prices are very reasonable - only 50 cents CDN per running inch on the 59-inch width. For example, a 36" x 59"-piece would be charged for 36 running inches: 36" x .50= $18.00 CDN .
