Laminated prints are slightly brittle.

Just to add:
Brittleness is one of the side affects. The other is bubbles and delamination

All solvents must have evaporated from the print before you laminate it.
It may seem the case after 6 hours or so, but they recommend about 24 or 48 hours.
It may seem dry, but the solvents were probably still evaporating, kind of like when you buy a new car - the new car smell is considered to be chemicals still leaking out for many months after manufacture.

Did the print in the morning and then laminated it last thing in the day.
Probably 6 to 8 hours drying time.

How long did you let them dry for, before laminating them?

Some of my laminated prints are very slightly brittle. They just don't seem to have a nice flexibility about them. It is very slight, but I feel there may be something I am doing wrong?
