Matte lamination and gloss lamination at Replica on Miramar Rd.

MATTE LAMINATION

Pros:

  • Subtle, tactile effect that oozes quality with a sophisticated look.
  • Sophisticated and classy look without the shiny.
  • Matte lamination can produce lower contrast on darker colors, resulting in an overall softer look.
  • Does not reflect light.

Cons:

  • Less reflective finish can lessen the intensity of color, producing a more “washed-out” or muted palette.
  • Does not provide the same level of protection as gloss lamination, prone to scratching and fingerprints.
  • Colors look lighter.

 

GLOSS LAMINATION

Pros:

  • Glossy and reflective allows it to grab attention that implies a richer product.
  • Visually stunning, deeper, cleaner and crisper lines and gives color vibrancy.
  • Repels dust, dirt and fingerprints – easy to clean.
  • Reflects light and shouts for attention.

Cons:

  • Reflective nature makes it harder to see in a room with bright light sources.
  • Imperfections catch light and draw attention. (scuff, scratches, indents)
  • Colors look darker.

It all comes down to personal preference and what you are trying to achieve when choosing between matte and gloss. Matte lamination provides a sophisticated high-class look. Gloss lamination will get attention with brighter colors and a more visible shine.
