    Default Cold lamination flim

    Where I buy them from?

    Currently I'm using a Japanese brand, however the result is not very good.

    I bought some cold lamination pouch, they are from Taiwan. The results are very good. Unfortunately, the sole agent closed down. But I think they do ship to SIN for a min qty needed.

    Hi, are you using a cold lamination machine? If not, it's really tricky as air bubbles will get in. The other issue you'll get is dust being trapped in between.

    I tried both machine & free hand.

    Yes, tiny dusts do get in at times, & I got to "peel" the whole thing off. Really tiring.

    Yes, this happens. Back when we were doing it, we got the 'Jet Cleaner 530' airspray from Cathay Photo to clear the print before lamination. We also laminated in a dust free area, away from people walking about. It's a tiring process unfortunately, that's about as much as I can help, sorry. We had no choice but to do it for a couple of years as we had very bad service from 3rd party lamination people.

    DIY is the best option, get it done by others, either it is too ex, or too bad quality.

    I had an Oyama film and I find it's not that good also, there clarity of the film is a bit weird and there are tiny bubbles - its not those screwed up lamination bubbles as it is nicely laminated using an automated machine. Its those 'inherent' bubbles that can never be removed no matter how well you do it.

    Yes. I totally agree, this is wat I've encounter. Sometimes if the photo have a lot of white background, worse.

    The photos you laminated, are they matt or glossy? Cos I'm also wondering if that plays a part too.

    Oyama has at least 2 types of laminates AFAIK. Well, everyone is still looking around for the best film.

    I laminated glossy - I thought that it would have been better to have a smooth surface to adhere to.

    Oyama has tons of different types of laminates actually when I last visited the distributor a couple years ago.

    I see...

    I'll be getting another type of laminate flim to try, I hope the results are better!
