    Question Coffee Table Book Question

    have noticed that the photos pasted inside the coffee table book has some kind of laminating material pasted on top of the photos.

    may I know what material is that? Is it use for preventing finger print?

    Cold laminate.

    Develop you photos in gloss print to get the full details for better results after lamination. Many photo shop offer such services.

    Around $3-4 for a super 8R size, $8 for A3, $12 for A2 and $18 for A1 at some stores.

    It offers a nice protection against finger prints and dirt esp on the glossy finish. Photos do not look very nice on a shiny plastic cover eg. hot laminate or slot in photo album. So some mount it on a albums without the plastic cover using glue etc. Without the cold laminate protection, such photo can 'die' (become messed up with finger prints etc) very fast.
