Anti-Scratch and Soft Touch Matte Lamination

Learn more about our anti-scratch printing option and figure out if it’s right for your project.

Anti Scratch Book Cover Lamination

While many creators prefer the subtle look of a matte finish, one downside is that it tends to show marks more easily than a gloss finish does – especially on large areas of solid color. To avoid this, you can use an anti-scratch matte lamination in place of our standard matte lamination, keeping scratches and scuffs from affecting the aesthetic of your covers or the pages of your board book. We also have a soft touch matte lamination available, which provides the same protection that anti-scratch does while also adding some extra tactility. As the name implies, it feels “soft” and extra smooth.

Please see the below image comparison of “Anti-Scratch Matte” lamination vs. basic “Matte” lamination:

Antivis Reg
You can see aesthetically there is not much difference between the two – but be assured, the “anti-scratch” option offers more protection.

Anti-scratch matte lamination is also a great choice for custom games, especially for game boards, since they tend to see more action than a typical book does.
