Finishing Options

Add the right finishing touch to your project!

Laminating

We can laminate items up to 60" wide.

We can either encapsulate an item in laminate or surface laminate an item that has been mounted to a substrate.

There are a variety of different laminates available, including:

  • 3ml Satin Finish and Matte Finish
  • 3ml Dry Erase Laminate
  • 5ml Satin Finish and Matte Finish
  • 5ml Clear Texture and 10ml White Blockout Backer
  • 10ml Gloss Finish
  • Ultra Optically-Clear Laminate

Dry Mounting

We use a dry mounting process—no sprays or wet adhesives are involved. Dry mounting provides a pristine, bubble-free, and crease-free mounted piece.

We stock various substrates for mounting, including:

  • 3/16" Thick White Foam Core
  • 3/16" Thick Black Foam Core
  • 3/16" White Gatorboard
  • Various plastics in varying thicknesses

Plastic Trim

Plastic trim can be added to any print on 3/16" foam core or gatorboard. The trim protects the edges from tattering and is very useful for prints that may be moved around a lot. It also gives the print the appearance of having a poster frame, which is a nice, finished touch.

Various colors⁠—including black, gold, silver, brushed silver, and white⁠—are available.


Paper Folding

What are the different types of paper folding methods?

There are a number of standard folding types used in the printing industry, as illustrated below.

At Heyrman & Green Bay Blue, we have a machine that automatically folds your print projectsfrom blueprints to brochuresfor mailings or so they can fit into a binder, folder, or spec book.

Of course, there are many more than we show here. Contact us you have a question about a standard or special fold for your project.
