    Hi
    Today I will install some graphics that has been printed onto laminate and I just wonder if anyone has installed printed laminate and how you did it?

    Printed "lamination" does not have air channels, so make sure you take your time and try to avoid bubbles.

    Laminate is usually thinner and needs extra hands to hold

    Did you laminate the printed laminate? If not, I'd be extra careful about scratching your print areas. There is clear vinyl that would make a better substrate for clear background decals, but we've used your method in a pinch with success as well.

    Depends on the size. If it's not massive then I premask and install dry. If it's huge then premask and wet install. This is assuming no laminate on the print.
