What Are Vivid Laminators and Why Do BBT Work with Them?

A laminator that just works sounds simple. In reality, it's rare that one that works well with digital printers, is multifunctional and fully modular. We wanted to find a laminator we can confidently stand behind to give a first-class finish. So we tested intensively for speed, strength, durability, reliability and efficiency.

After working closely with laminating film and machine manufacturers, we can now confidently say the Vivid Matrix MX-370P laminator is the one we recommend.

This is why as a company we committed to working with Vivid exclusively on laminators and if, after reading this page, you want to see one in action, come over to one of our showrooms.

Quick and Affordable Lamination

The Vivid Matrix MX-370P makes in-house lamination very fast and affordable. So compared to outsourcing this work, it pays for itself many times over in a short period of time.

Starting the lamination process is extremely quick and within just 10 minutes of warming up, you can start laminating your first printed sheets. Where the Matrix MX-370P really stands out is that it has pneumatic rollers, which use extremely high pressure. This makes them twice as fast at covering digital print compared to ones without. With laminating speeds of up to 10 metres per minute, turning work around is quick and easy.

In addition to fast turnaround times, the machine has a small footprint. It's a perfect fit for businesses of any size. This model of Vivid Matrix laminator also has a semi-automated feed, automatic separation, automatic sheet register and overlap. These features, along with the anti-curl bar, help to ensure reliable and consistent results. So you can focus less on running the machine and more on production.

Gloss, Matt and Soft Touch Laminate Films

We stock a huge range of laminate films at cheap prices, including the more common matt and gloss, along the soft touch in both clear and black.

Gloss is the traditional smooth laminate, which provides high durability against friction and helps draw out the colours.

Matt lamination is also durable, but will make prints look smoother for a more muted look. Matt lamination also benefits from a more premium feel. This can work very effectively when you want to give a softer impression.

Soft touch laminate, on the other hand, provides a similar look to the matt lamination, but has a premium quality feel. It feels almost like the skin of a peach and will be an instant talking point.

A Choice of Finishes

Beyond basic lamination, the Matrix laminator is also versatile because it provides a range of different finishes which are normally only possible with more specialised skills and more expensive equipment.

These include foiling in a massive variety of colours and designs, including holographic and a similar effect to spot UV. These are all very easy to reproduce with just the Vivid Matrix MX-370P, a take up unit and your Konica Minolta printer.
