I've laminated things before and always left a bit of a margin around the paper in the plastic when I've been cutting it out, because I thought it needed that to keep it sealed. I know I've had things that have prised open before now when I haven't wanted them too.

However, I bought some earrings a while ago and they were cut to the width of the paper with no border. (Hopefully that makes sense?) They haven't split open like I thought they might, so I'm wondering if there is a particular type of laminator/plastic sheet that is used for that?

There is a self adhesive laminate product that doesn't require heat- maybe that is what they used- I have used it and yes you can trim it right to the edge- It is available in office supply stores- personally, I don't really like the end result- it looks to cheap

This looks the same as the normal laminated stuff, but it sounds like it could be that. I'll have to look out for it, thanks!
