The Daige Quickmount and EZ-Glide puts a clear protective laminate protection on top of sheet being laminated.
The laminate protects from harmful UV sunlight rays.
If you place the sheet on top of a board, and then laminate, the process will also mount your item to the board.

The Rollataqs and Maxits only mount items, without providing protective coverings.

Q: Regarding a laminator for Icons -
8" x 10" on MDF 3/4" Fiberboard - I would like one side laminated and the other side mounted to the wood, like in plaques. For the laminate, I prefer a dull satin finish, not glossy. How is this done?

A: This would be three step process.

1. apply laminate to image side using Quikmount: when running prints through the Quikmount, you place them on top of a carrier board (gatorfoam, sintra, styrene etc.) which gives it stiffness and support plus it takes up
excess laminate that does not go on the print. In this case the board enables you to laminate multiple prints.

Take a board about 24" x 25" and start the first 1" in the laminator.

PLace the 8" x 10" prints on top of the board, two across and two back (total of 4 prints). Run the prints through, then trim them after they are laminated.
You can use a longer board to do 3 back or 4 back and then do 6 or 8 at a time. They can get satin or matte finish in the laminate.

2. Apply adhesive using Quikmount: they would replace the roll of laminate with a roll of double sided adhesive. If the Icon covers the entire plaque, then they would apply the adhesive to the plaque. If not, then they would apply the adhesive to the icon. The adhesive costs about 60 ents per sq. ft.

3. Remove the first two inches of the backing paper to expose the adhesive, line up the print to the plaque, then run it through the Quikmount to mount.

A better alternative to steps 2 and 3 is to use one of our adhesive systems, either the Rollataq or Maxit. These both use roller coaters to apply adhesive to the back of the print. YOu run the print through the roller coater and in only seconds they apply a coating of adhesive. You then position the print on the plaque and roll down the print to the plaque for a permanent bond.

Applying the adhesive with the roller coater systems is much faster than using double sided adhesive with Quikmount. It is also much less expensive. Rollataq costs 4 cents per sq. ft and Maxit 11 cents versus 60 cents for the double sided. Finally, it is much easier to position the print with these adhesives versus the very aggressive
double sided adhesives.

There is no machine that will laminate and mount
at the same time.

All Maxits:
  • One year manufacturers warranty
  • Ships in about one week from order
  • Uses 120 volts
  • If you are mounting larger prints (22" x 28" or larger) we recommend running the prints on the board through a cold laminator such as our Quikmount laminator. Rolling pressure is very important to getting the proper bond and using a cold laminator insures you get the proper
    pressure on larger prints.
