An important safety sign that was supposed to last is now in ripped to shreds.
You set your new artwork down on the table and spilled coffee all over it.
We've all had times where we messed up a document we
were supposed to keep. There is however, an easy way to protect and preserve
documents, signs, menus, artwork and more. Laminate it!
What does lamination do? Lamination securely seals your documents on four sides and
provides protection from finger prints, scratches, liquid spills and even the
dreaded rays of the sun. It changes regular paper into the superhero of
documents. And it's easier than you think! Most machines for individual use
are pouch laminators. And modern pouch laminators, like the Swingline Fusion
laminators, can heat up in about a minute and do not require the old fashioned
cardboard carriers to hold documents.
And lamination can even make your papers look better! When you laminate with a glossy finish it makes your
document look shiny and vibrant. If you are going to laminate something really
important it's always a good idea to test an unimportant document before
laminating the actual piece. This will help ensure that you have set the
machine to the right settings prior to use. Of course if you are using an
automatic machine like the Swingline Fusion 5100L, it will adjust the
settings for you.
