Laninateing and added weight.
« on: May 08, 2008, 12:34:06 PM »
This is a pretty obscure question and I'll preface it with the scenario. We have a job that is being laminated and we need to ship it by truck when finished. Does anyone have a clue what kind of weight would be added to a printed piece by laminating both sides of the sheet with a 1.5 mil laminate? Would it double the weight, or maybe half again? Any ideas? We're trying to quote shipping, the paper is easy to figure but not sure what the plastic will do to the equation.

Do you have some other sheets that are already laminated with 1.5mil? You could weigh 10 or 20 of them and then figure it out from there.

So,  :drunk3: i send the job to the rip with live transparecy (v 1.7 or whatever) and it craps out with a memory error.

That would be the way to go but we don't do the laminating here and don't have access to anything like that.

No samples of previous lam jobs? Surely someone on the forum has something like that at their shop and can weigh a stack for you...we don't, sorry.

Wait a minute. Why am I a "white" African American, but other African Americans aren't "black" African Americans? What would I be if my mother was an Australian Aboriginal and my father was a white stockbroker from Maine? "They" would all call me African American, but in reality I'd be a mulatto from the South Pacific. I don't get it.
