Lamination is the process of using heat and pressure to apply a laminate over the surface of a plastic ID card to protect the printed image, text, and graphics from everyday wear and tear. An overlaminate provides maximum durability and protection from abrasion, color fading and dye-migration.


Laminating ID card printers have the ability to print and laminate secure and durable photo IDs in a single pass. Once an ID card or badge is printed it advances to the lamination stage where a clear or holographic overlaminate is applied. Holographic overlaminates are either standard images that come with a specific printer model, or they can be customized with a company logo. Holographic overlaminates add another level of security that makes cards more difficult to counterfeit.
