Mounting and Laminating Survey - You spoke and we listened
Mounting and Laminating a large print needs to be a one man job
Our systems have features which let one person mount and laminate large prints. The Polar systems feature a media guide which holds prints in place while you roll them down on self adhesive foam board or self adhesive gator board. The Media Guide is similar to the easy to use paper guide on an old typewriter.
The Phoenix laminator uses One Pass heat activated film pouches and pouch board. The adhesives are not sticky and let you position your print before processing. After you smooth the film over your print, you just insert the pouch board into the laminator and your print is mounted or laminated in one step. Best of all, one person can do this on most hot roll laminators.
With either the Polar or One Pass products, you get predictable and professional results every time.
Board and Film Choices, including Custom sizes and finishes
You want to do more jobs with your prints. We offer a wide range of photo mount boards from foam boards, Gator boards or plastic boards for both indoor and outdoor displays. With films, we also offer a range of finishes from Gloss which makes COLORS POP to non-reflective matte films for signs. We also have textured laminates to add dimension to match what your customer wants and needs.
Custom Sizes save you time and money. Custom cut foam board eliminates trimming and make handling boards easier. Use our free on-line Custom Size cost calculator which will give you your cost on a number of different boards, including pouch boards. Use our extensive experience to help you choose the right materials for your job. Your creative success is our business.
Videos, Technical Support, Installation and Training
We have over 40 videos on our video page. These cover our Polar and One Pass laminators as well as all of our supplies for those systems. Most of these videos are about 2 minutes in length and are a great reference as well as a visual way to see new products and techniques. Click on the picture to the left to visit our video page. They can also be viewed on youtube.
We are here to help you but sometimes when manuals and videos are not enough. We also partner with Smooth Finish to provide full on-site support including Technical Service of machines, installation of new laminators (including set-up) and on-site training. All in all, we have the resources to not only get you up and producing professional displays quickly, we can help keep you that way so you can build your Mounting and Laminating business with confidence.
Shipping costs are very important
You need to know that the product you order is going to arrive in good shape, on time and at a reasonable cost. We use double-wall boxes and overpack all boards up to 32"x40" so they can be shipped by UPS. We also size our products and carton quantities to meet UPS maximum sizes limitations to minimize truck shipping. Another way Artgrafix saves you money.
