Laminators are not a new invention, in fact they’ve been around for years.
Laminators cover and preserve important documents such as certificates, receipts, sketches, leaflets and many others in a plastic film or a thin vinyl.
This protects the documents from getting smudged, stained, and even damaged from external factors that can hamper your document.
