Chicago Printing Services Provider Now Offers Laminating to Clients

Roselle, Illinois (October 17, 2014) – As a response to insistent customer demand, Controlled Color, Inc. has added laminating capabilities to its service offerings. Lamination serves as an ideal complement to the company’s existing printing services in Chicago, which also include photography and graphic design.

Lamination is a process in which a plastic film is applied to printed material to increase its longevity. This outer coating provides added protection against fingerprints, smudges, and spills. Also, lamination makes an item sturdier by reducing its vulnerability to creasing, folding, and tearing. As such, lamination allows companies to save considerable money since the need for reprinting is significantly minimized.

Aside from these benefits, lamination enhances the colors of inks, which increases a printed item’s visual appeal. Hence, it is an affordable way to make prints look instantly more professional. A variety of printed pieces can benefit from lamination, including posters, passes, business cards, point-of-sale collaterals, and business signage.

The company’s laminate is available in 5 mil (.005) or 10 mil (.010) thickness. Additionally, the lamination can be trimmed to have rounded or square edges. There are also two edge styles to choose from: a “sealed edge,” which has 1/4” extra lamination all 4 sides, or a “trimmed edge” wherein no extra laminate extends past the edge (i.e. the laminate ends where the item ends).

According to the company, the addition of laminating services is part of its goal to become a one-stop shop for all printing needs. To learn more about the laminating process and to request for quotes, simply visit
