Book lamination

Providing strength and durability to printed media, UK Book Binders thermal lamination films have gained a reputation for quality. Ideal for single and double-sided lamination, the film is perfect for various applications, including book covers and jackets, magazines, brochures, maps, gift wrap, calendars, point-of-sale material, and more.

Also known as dry lamination, the film is applied to the substrate using only pressure and heat to activate the adhesive. This allows a wide range of "film to film" and "film to foil" applications.

We provide the following finishes:

  • Gloss lamination
  • Matt lamination
  • Soft-touch lamination


Gloss lamination really helps bring the colour of your print to life and make it POP! Gloss is definitely a solid choice for photo-heavy artwork and book covers in general.

​Gloss lamination is a durable choice of laminate. It repels dirt, dust, and fingerprints perhaps better than its counterparts. This laminate is designed to be easily wiped, so if your laminate does come into contact with dust or other dirt, it is easy to wipe clean!


Matt lamination is an ideal choice of laminate for document covers and posters. It really does help to enhance colour and provide that extra durability.
Matt lamination gives a subtle, tactile effect that oozes quality, great for items where image and first impressions mean everything. Whilst forming a protective coating over the print, it does not provide the same level of protection as gloss lamination and can be prone to scratching and fingerprints especially where folding is involved.


Yes, you guessed it, the texture of this laminate is… soft!
This is certainly a premium laminate, it has an almost moleskin leather feel. So if your product is going to be heavily touched, like a business card, then this would be a fantastic option.
