Laminates generally serve as a layer of protection for different materials. You get waterproofing, scratch resistance, and increased durability over a longer amount of time. Vinyl laminates for heat presses and design serve such a function, when you want a protective film. They may also come with UV protection, to proactively handle sun bleaching or weather damage.
As an added benefit, laminates also prevent ink from smearing or fading after printer applications. Add little pieces rather than full sheets so that you do not cover any registration marks.
