Why laminate a hardcover ? Very simply put, for protection. Paper alone does not stand up to the normal wears and tears of hardcover bookbinding. Constant use, hinges flexing, being dropped & throw around, spilling a drink. These are all givens when someone uses a hardcover book. UV Coating won't do it. Another function is it adds to the appearance of your product. Be it gloss,
matte, silk or another type of laminate, this feature enhances the look of it. The only scenario where you typically would not require a lamination is if you are using a synthetic material such as Skivertex or Nuba or Leather. Those materials are reinforced. Listed below we have a few laminators we recommend to our customers that we've both used as well as sold. They're nice working machines & give you options to consider for your budget as well as staffing requirements.

This Laminator is a double sided laminator. We remove the Heat Source
from the bottom supply for more effective single side applications.
For many years we've used this ProLam Pocket Rocket for
our own Single Side applications with very good results.
A 13" unit is ideal for most printed output. This does not have
the automatic trimming or semi automatic feeding applications
the Matrix unit has, but for companies on a stricter low budget
this unit can get the job done very nicely.
Adjustable Temperature, Pressure & Speed give you the flexibility to laminate
all your graphics without losing function. And for Single Side Laminating Film
which is very thin, this unit is adjustable speed so you can laminate faster.
Features 3" Supply Cores and a Large Outside Diameter Film Capacity for
those large single side roll supplies.
