Step 2. Run the prints through the laminator and the foil or film is added by bonding to digital ink, specifically HP Indigo inks and a few other digital toner-based inks

Step 2. Laminate the entire sheet with gloss or matte laminate
Step 3. Prints are rerun through the printer where ink is only applies to areas where sleeking is desired
