Gerber EZ Guard is a liquid laminate

rollers found at any hardware store.

Produced for Gerber by 3M, Gerber Luster
is a clear 2-mil, glossy PVC-based overlaminate
designed to be used with graphics
produced with Gerber Eco Plus inks and
Gerber Elan solvent inks. It is also approved
for use with MacDermid ColorSpan Display-
Maker 72S, Mimaki JV3 series, Seiko Color-
Painter 64S, and other solvent inkjet printers.
Available in three widths, Luster is a
pressure-sensitive cold laminate for use
with roll laminators. It's suitable for applications
that feature compound curves, corrugations,
or riveted surfaces. (Gerber Scientific Products:
