Information gateway to laminating equipment for wide-format Ink-jet posters and banners
Laminating your wide-format ink jet color prints will make them look even better. Text will stand out more, the colors will be more vibrant.
Many different companies offer laminating machines:
Axiom Graphics, 905 Market St., Yuba City, CA 95991, tel (530) 673-3034. Now part of Seal (Hunt), so may have new numbers.
Coda, Inc, 30 Industrial Ave, Mahwah, NJ 07430, tel (201) 825-7400
GBC, 4151 Anderson Road, DeForest, WI 53532, tel (608) 246-8844. The GBC staff that I have met at trade shows both in Orlando and in California have been pleasant and informative. GBC is one of the two largest laminating companies around (Seal being the other).
LEDCO Inc, 4265 North Main St, Hemlock, NY 14466, (800) 937-9293
USI, 33 Business Park Drive, Suite 5, Branford, CT 06405, tel (800) 243-4565. We visited their stand at the recent Gutenberg Festival (printing trade show in California) and then again at several other trade shows. The USI staff was pleasant and helpful, young and energetic. It helps when the people are not stuffy.
Seal is probably the best known, Seal Products Inc., 550 Sprint St (P.O). Box 596), Naugatuck, Conn, 06770-0596, tel (800) 257-7325.
