D&K’s proprietary Diamond Hard Velvet Matte™ laminating films feature a revolutionary top-coated matte surface that offers an unparalleled look and feel. These laminating films create a haze-free matte finish that will not distort graphics or shift colors. The matte finish also offers added scuff resistance with a soft velvet touch that is ideal for high end applications of all types.
Additionally, Diamond Hard Velvet Matte™ laminating films are writable. They are receptive to most types of pens, pencils, and other writing instruments. This writable finish is also much clearer than many other writable matte products.
Diamond Hard Velvet Matte™ laminating films are especially suitable for book covers, business cards, folders, postcards, sales literature, and more. The United States Postal Service has approved D&K’s Nylon Diamond Hard Velvet Matte™ laminating films for use on postcards and other mailers. The soft velvet matte surface on nylon versions readily accepts postmarks and processes through automated sorting equipment. These nylon laminating films are also compatible with many other secondary finishing processes including printing, UV spot coating, foil stamping, and more.
Diamond Hard Velvet Matte™ finish is offered on all types of laminating films including nylon (curl-free), polypropylene, and polyester. Polyester laminating films can be mapped and matched for perfectly flat products such as cards, mailers, and more. Polyester Diamond Hard Velvet Matte™ overlams can also be mapped and matched with gloss films!
These films are available with a variety of D&K laminating adhesives including SuperStick® digital adhesive for digital print types. Special versions are also available with SuperStick® Indigo® adhesives specifically designed for laminating to difficult HP Indigo® digital output.
