Being asked by a customer to have some prints done heat sealed, not sure if this is the proper name but the photos that she already has done are like matt prints with a texture on them, you can rub them with damaging them, firstly, is this the correct term for this and secondly where can I get them printed?

Thats not it, it would be like a matt print but with a texture to prevent damage that I'm after.

Heatsealing has been around for a long time. You do need something like a Hotpress heated vacuum press and the proper laminating film, also from Hotpress.

Better to get it done at a lab.

Apart from OneVision, what other labs provide this service?
