Self-sealing pouches are ideal for various papers because they are available in different sizes. While the largest pouches are perfect for posters and menus, the smaller pouches are suitable for laminating items such as business cards and name tags. Self-sealing pouches can be used independently, with no heat needed, so pouch lamination is unnecessary.
To laminate a piece of paper in a laminator, you’ll need thermal laminating pouches of the same size as your paper.
Cut along the seam to divide the top from the bottom of the laminating pouch. Two sheets are produced, but we only need one for this project, so set the second sheet aside for another.
Do you have wood projects but are unsure how to prepare them for sublimation? Put a piece of parchment paper on the press’s bottom plate and set the heat press to 385 F for 60 seconds. Place the hot heat press on top of the wood pieces. Then, place a thermal laminating sheet over the wood slices. The glossy side of the laminating sheet should be facing up and extending beyond the edges of the wood slices. The laminate will be attached to the wood, sealing your project and giving it a glossy finish.
