The Choices of film laminated finishes has grown over the past few years and Olro can offer the complete range. All our laminates are processed on the latest water based machines by experienced and skilled operators.


Olro can run sheet sizes from SRA4 to B1 using OPP, Acetate, and Polyester films. The most common is OPP (Orientated Polypropylene) which has been widely used throughout the industry for many years giving cost effective protection and enhancement to your print.

Gloss OPP

A striking glossy finish will compliment the colours in your print producing a clear and vibrant image. The laminate will have a good bond with the substrate which will aid smooth operation during other machine finishing processes.

Superb visual sharpness creates a toned down effect with a quality matt finish. Matt lamination also provides an attractive surface for Spot Gloss UV Varnish and the combination can be reversed to Spot Matt UV Varnish over a Gloss Lamination.

The mix of matt and gloss in the manufacture of the film offers printers an attractive solution where a high gloss or rich matt finish is not appropriate. The silky feel and sheen delivers the same clarity and detail as other OPP laminates with a luxury edge and soft visual tones.

Gloss OPP

Without doubt this laminate is proving to be highly popular. The luxury tactile surface can appeal when used on the appropriate job. If a printed product is going to be handled regularly it will entice the user to be more interested. The laminate also has strong Anti Scuff properties. If you have not experienced Soft Touch on your work it would be worth making your clients aware.

Anti Scuff Matt provides the benefits of clear and concise images which enable the colours in your print to appear natural and as intended. Cover work for brochures, booklets, folders and wallets will not mark where they are being handled regularly.

What is the difference between Acetate and Opp film?

Acetate films derive from wood in the same way as paper. Acetate films are refined from the wood pulp but to a greater extent until the end product is a translucent film. Gloss, Matt and Silk Acetate laminates are similar in their appearance to the OPP Gloss, Matt and Silk range of films, offering good clarity over your print.

The benefit of Acetate laminates is that they are Biodegradable and if your client is conscious of the environment then Acetate could be the answer. The decision when to use Acetate films should be for the right reasons. The film is more expensive than OPP and is thinner but tough on the surface, and although not anti scuff has some reduced marking properties.

It is also means that an experienced operator is required to run the film as it can be more temperamental on the machine and the flow of adhesive required must be precise. Olro has very experienced operators with the processing of Acetate Laminates.

Gloss OPP

We have a range of laminates that provide a realistic grained finish. Primarily these are Linen, Leather, Calico, and Brush effects.

The advantage is that laminating and graining can be produced in one pass, saving time and money. In addition the printed sheet can be grained on one side which is not possible with conventional graining machines.

Grained films like all special finishes are more expensive but do have a niche market especially in cover and packaging work. The films are not held in stock, but we can normally obtain the film within 5-7 days once we have received your confirmation order.
