Considerations

When you’re considering laminating your work, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • We can’t laminate foam pieces or foam board
  • We can laminate back-to-back pages if they’re glued or taped together
  • If you want to cut out constructions paper, you should laminate it first.
  • We can laminate poster board but the edges won’t adhere well
  • If building several layers, with smaller layers on top of larger ones, have the layers individually laminated before putting them together
  • Dried nature projects — like leaves — do not laminate well. While the librarian may be willing to try it, we don’t recommend doing it.
  • Talk with the librarian before starting your project. We’re happy to help!
