Gloss or Matte Scientific Posters

People ask us all the time- should use gloss or matte laminate? Or, for that matter, should I laminate at all?

First of all, if you are using your poster for just a few hours we believe that a paper poster does the job very well.

If you plan to hang your poster in your lab afterwards, it’s a good idea to have it laminated. The laminate will protect it, and keep it looking fresh for a long time.

Most people tell us that glare is not a problem in most poster sessions, so you can usually get away with a gloss laminated poster. The colors of your poster will be more brilliant on a gloss laminated poster too.

Here’s a side by side picture of gloss (on the left) and matte laminates showing how matte laminate will attenuate the glare.
