cold lamination is to add a layer of protective plastic over the front surface of yr photos without going thru the heater machine. cold lamination on photos are done with a kind of rollers machine. photos and the sticky plastic past thru the machines to prevent air bubbles.
mainly this photos are for mounting photos albums.:)

the finishing is different
the normal lamination will give a glossy finish...which i tink u already know wat it looks like

cold lamination, however, is a matt finishing, thicker and more scratch resistant....its wat they use in the wedding albums.... perhaps this will give u a better idea...

my take is, cold lam...coz the normal laminiation's surfcae is too reflective...

cheers..

No problem, Yap, 2 types of matt finish ( both are thicker than the glossy type, one is slightly more texturized). You can just get the scapper at around $2. ;)

* The glossy sheets are VERY thin, so got to be extra careful when applying to photographs.*
