A laminating and mounting system include a pouch (10) made of thermal laminating film (15,16) and a thermal adhesive (21,22) on a surface (17,18) both inside the pouch and outside the pouch. A first substrate (19), like a print, is placed within a chamber (25) of the pouch (10). The pouch (10) is attached or aligned with a backer board, a rigid substrate (20). The assembly comprising the pouch (10), print (19) and backer substrate (20) are laminated in one pass by a laminating machine (30) that applies both heat and pressure.
