Pressure sensitive material has a peel off waxed paper that is removed to reveal an adhesive surface. When choosing a fabric or paper for custom lamination the following should be considered. What will it look like lit? Is the scale of the print appropriate? Is it printed only on one side? Will the folds press out? Is the material too thin or too heavy? Some fabrics have been treated with stain resistant chemicals or sizing. They should be washed prior to laminating. Press fabric to remove all the wrinkles. You can also laminate maps, color copies, photographs, vintage linens, gift wrap, handmade paper, fine needle work, navigational charts, note cards, art prints, and wood veneer. Cut out the arc or shade panels you are going to laminate from pressure sensitive material.
Place fabric etc. wrong side up on smooth, flat, clear work surface. Place the cut to size arc, or shade panels on the fabric and mark a starting point. Make sure the arc or panels will fit on the fabric. Peel back a small portion of the protective covering and line it up with the placement marks. Reach under the pressure sensitive material and remove the remaining covering while smoothing the pressure sensitive material into place on the paper or fabric. Cut excess fabric or paper from around the pressure sensitive material and make your shade in the usual way.
