Water-Resistant Cards

Water-Resistant Playing Cards Lamination “Water-resistant” is a fancy way of saying laminated. Lamination is a finish that is typically applied to thicker materials. This requires a roll of film to be glued onto your printed parent sheet as seen in this lamination machine video.

Applying a gloss lamination finish to a your cards will produce a highly reflective shine, as seen in the photo to the right. Matte lamination has a more subtle shine. If your cards have a lot of text then a matte lamination is probably best for readability.

This specialty option is available with:

  • Cards
  • Game Box

Please Note: water-resistant is not water proof.
