While laminating the card provides an extra amount of protection from ultraviolet light the main reason for laminating the card is dependent upon the use of the card.
If the card will be continually swiped through a barcode or magnetic stripe reader, placed in a plastic pouch, or used in a chemically harsh environment then lamination of the card will provide the extra protection needed to prevent card damage and dye migration.
