A friend just asked me for an opinion on a laminator.
This is the laminator I bought for $150 in February of 2010. I thoroughly abuse this machine and it is now available on Amazon for $59 plus $11 shipping.
One of the great features of this machine is that it does not require the use of a “carrier sheet/pouch,” so there are fewer jams. As a matter of fact, it has never really jammed up on us yet.
I use these laminating pouches with it, also available on Amazon.
Based on the number of pouches I’ve purchased, I’ve laminated over 3500 sheets of mostly 110lb cardstock.
I guess my husband is justified when he says that he has to be careful as he lives in fear of me laminating him!
I’ve never tried any other machine, but what I have seems to work well and the price is currently VERY good.
And in the interest of full disclosure, if you happen to purchase any of these products by using the hyperlinks you find on this page, we will earn a few pennies for our homeschool as we are part of the Amazon Associate program.
But this an honest product review and we did and do purchase all of these materials at full price from Amazon, each time we use them.
