Our mounting & laminating and encapsulation department has all the facilities on hand to ensure your presentations are finished to a high standard. Whether it’s mounting onto 5mm foam board or encapsulating within a gloss or matt film, Metro Repro can handle all of your requirements in-house.

Mounting

We can dry mount prints onto either Kappa or Foamex. Kappa board mounting provides a rigid medium for which to display your prints for point of sale, presentations and all display applications. Kappa board mounting is both lightweight and rigid and is available in 3mm or 5mm thickness and is designed for indoor use. Foamex is a compressed PVC board, which is strong, durable, rigid and lightweight to handle.  It is available in 1mm, 3mm or 5mm thicknesses and is designed for indoor or outdoor use.  Mounted prints can also be matt or gloss laminated to protect the print and also adds a stamp of quality.

Laminating

This involves applying a thin layer of plastic on one side of the paper, which enhances the finish as well as making it tougher. The main difference between encapsulation and lamination is that lamination does not seal the edges so it is not as durable. We can use gloss and matt film depending on your preference.

Encapsulating

This is when printed material is sealed in plastic. This involves applying two layers of plastic, one each side which bond to the material and have a seal around the edge. This edge seal prevents dirt, moisture etc from being able to penetrate the material. We can use gloss and matt film depending on preference.

We can Mount, Laminate and Encapsulate most sizes of print, up to and including 1600mm wide by virtually unlimited length.
