    There isnt' a ton you can do. I would call my sales reps for the suppliers I use and see if they have any partial or short rolls of lam that they would be willing to give you. The only way you'll have luck on that though, is if you spend a decent amount of money with them consistently.

    100 stickers is a pretty small order. Any particular reason that they are insisting on lamination?

    Buy a roll of matte lam. It comes in handy. I didn't use it for years, but bought a roll, and use it up in a month. Just found ALL sorts of uses for it.

    it is for a wakeboard team...so they are going on boats, trucks, cars, wakeboards...etc. and plus they asked for them to be laminated

    Add the cost of the matte laminate roll to the decals. Tell them straight up that if they want regular glossy decals they'll be regular price, if they want matte finish decals they'll be the higher price. Let them figure out what they want to do.
