Two finishes – two different results

Specialising in decorative foiling and lamination services, we aim to give our customer’s products a finish that will make them stand out from the crowd. With experience in working with such materials as MDF, PVC, ASA and Plywood, our skill set is extensive. If you have something particular in mind that includes a high quality laminated finish, then you have come to the right place.

With lamination there is a specific choice that people often find hard to make. This is whether to go with gloss or matt finish. Both are great in their own right, but they achieve different things. It is important to know the characteristics of both so you can see what makes them different.

Gloss laminate is incredibly stunning in terms of visuals. It produces lines that are deeper, crisper and cleaner, and provides cover photos with vibrancy. The reflective finish aims to grab everyone’s attention and implies that the product it is covering is richer. Glossy laminates are also durable, being able to repel fingerprints, dust and dirt. Even at those times when surface dirt is exposed to it, the product can be wiped clean with ease.

Matt lamination is often identified with a professional and elegant finish. It is currently the fashionable choice because of the depth and texture it offers. The finish’s velvety texture makes for an enjoyable tactile experience and it isn’t as reflective as gloss, making it ideal if you wish to go for something a touch more natural.

At Foiling Services we do our best to ensure that every client’s specifications are met. Just let us know what it is that you desire from us and we will offer recommendations about which lamination services to use. As part of the service we can go over exactly what kind of finish you can expect with each different laminate. You can then make your choice from a better position.
