A little less can mean a little more
on September 14, 2010
This micro machine came via Cheetah Mounts, an Amazon seller, whom I might add is an excellent sales partner. That said, this mighty midget gets the job done. Not that I would suggest you use this for production laminating for sure, but for luggage tags, business cards, 8x10 or 8.5x11 papers, it does a good job. It heats up in less than a minute and also cools down fast for storage. Items roll through in their carriers smoothly and one pass is sufficient on thinner stock for adequate adhesion. Thicker laminate, such as luggage tags, can take two passes to do the job I find acceptable, although one pass sealed them adequately, and would pass most people's test just fine. I'm a bit picky!
For the occasional laminator user, I'd recommend this machine. Cold or hot laminating, 4 rollers rather than two and easy to use and store. If there is a single setback, it's the packaging which is a bit on the slim side, and if UPS does it's usual drop-kick through the goalpost of life with it, it may not survive. That's not the fault of the laminator, for sure, just rough handling in shipping.
