Laminating is a cost-effective way to protect maps, drawings, aeronautical and nautical charts, or anything that you want to protect for the long term. We use a 3-millimetre 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. This will also keep your maps from fading or getting damaged over time.
You can write on our laminate with water-based felt markers and remove the writing later by simply removing with a damp cloth. Alternatively, you can use a permanent marker if you want the drawing to stay on for the long haul.
Hot Roll Laminating
Our hot-roll laminating machine, one of the largest in Canada, can handle up to 58 inches wide and up to any length.
Our laminating prices are very reasonable - only 70 cents CDN per linear inch on the 58-inch width for items that you bring in for lamination. Our own items are discounted even more! For example, a paper map that you bring in to laminate sized at 36" x 55" would be charged for 36 running inches: 36 x 0.70 = $25.20 CDN.
If you are purchasing maps online and would like to have them laminated, please make sure that you choose the LAMINATION option tab where applicable.
