In many cases it is unwise to laminate your own documents

Many people feel like laminating an important document is an essential thing to do in order to keep it safe. However, if you don’t laminate them properly then problems can arise and damage can be done. As well as this some documents are best left in their original state.

If you are going to opt for lamination, especially with an official document, it is best to have it done professionally by specialists like us. There are many things that people do not consider when laminating at home, such as temperatures and rules behind the lamination of certain documents.

Firstly, overheating the documents can destroy them. If it is not done correctly you run the risk of damaging the paper and deeming the document unusable. As laminating uses heat, it can be quite easy to damage things if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Another thing to check for is if your document has any official security seals or anything of that nature. The lamination can flatten the seal and make the document seem faked. This is the same case for many important documents. When they are laminated it can make them seem a lot less credible.

If you ever need to duplicate the document in the future, laminating can make them very difficult to photocopy and often they come out in poor quality with distorted lines and text. Lamination can often render legal documents invalid. This is particularly true with materials that need to be used as a form of identification. These should not be laminated as it can make it very difficult to prove the authenticity.
