Heat Sealed Lamination Pouches

Product Overview

Heat sealed pouches are used to laminate ID cards which are printed on a paper (natural and synthetic), which is then inserted between the two layers of the lamination pouch. The standard holographic pouch is holographic on one side; the backside is clear. We offer optional pouches with holographic graphics on both sides. We offer stock and custom versions.

We also offer "cold sealed" pouches, which do not require a heat laminator. For more information on cold sealed pouches, visit the Cold Sealed Lamination Pouches page.

  • Control access to your event, building and property
  • Combat counterfeiting and fake IDs
  • Prevent Alterations to authroized ID card

If NovaVision is requested to produce a custom holographic lamination pouch, we require proof to substantiate that you are authorized to purchase that product. We independently verify your contact information and legitimacy.

Heat Sealed vs Cold Sealed

We offer laminating pouches in two configurations:

Heat Sealed, which requires a desktop laminator. These finished ID cards are more durable and have a longer life (months and years)

Cold Sealed, which does NOT require any tools or equipment. Just place the printed insert between the plys, remove the silicone backer to expose the adhesive, and manually seal the pouch closed. These are intended for short term applications such as visitor badges, conventions, etc.

Heat Sealed Pouch Information

The heat-sealed lamination requires a heat laminator. This type of pouch is more durable; thicker lamination film creates a more durable identification card.

The heat-seal adhesive provides some tamper evidence. Attempts to remove the lamination usually results in tearing or defacing of the paper ID insert.

Standard and custom pouches are offered by NovaVision with the following features:

1. Material type:

Typically 4/6 (40% film / 60% hot melt adhesive)

2. Material thickness:
  • 5 mil
  • 7 mil
  • 10 mil
3. Sizes:
4. Options:
  • Holographic pouch
  • Pouch with transparent holographic label
  • Custom imprinted pouches
  • Pouches with slots
  • Butterfly pouches
  • Colored pouches
  • Pouches with magnetic stripes
  • Custom holographic pouches & laminate

Another method of achieving holographic security with lamination pouches is to use a plain lamination pouch with a custom imprinted hologram label. The hologram label is manually applied to the insert prior to laminating the pouch; using a custom imprinted hologram labels provides customized security. Using a plain lamination pouch is less than expensive than a holographic pouch.

Custom Transparent Holographic Imprint Pouch

Custom holographic pouches are constructed with 10 mil thick material (4/6) using a transparent rainbow pattern for the imprint. Military and Credit Card size are typically "butterfly" construction. Larger sizes are typically "seamed" construction.

The transparent holographic foil imprint is more visible and diffracts more light when the insert is gloss paper or other coated stock. On matte inserts, the holographic imprint will resemble a watermark.

To make the hologram imprint more visible on a matte insert, apply a piece of clear tape on the insert directly under the location of the hologram before laminating, then heat seal the iamination.

Also, if the underlying color of the insert is a dark color (black is the best), the imprinted hologram will be more prominent.

We provide FREE samples for testing BEFORE ordering. We do not provide refunds on this custom product.
