I bought this product directly from the seller's website and not from Amazon to get a free shipping. This is a great product as it does the job perfectly, if handled properly. It did a perfect lamination just like they did it in the service shop like Staples, OfficeMax and other, and at a fraction of cost of other laminators. I could not find any fault with the outputs.

However, as it is cheap, it comes with some drawbacks, which I have to imagine as I have not owned any other laminator before. It takes a while (6 minutes according to literature) for it to get warm before it can be used. However, it has indicator to signal when it is ready.

The biggest drawback is that it does not have a jam release mechanism. On my very second lamination I had to experience it. I had probably put too thick a paper to laminate - it went in and jammed and it will not come out. The rollers move only forward and it will not move any more forward and neither will it move back. i cannot get the document out. The only option seemed to me was to throw the whole thing to the garbage along with my valuable document. However, I sat down and had to disassemble the whole laminator piece by piece and finally extract the document. It took me well over several hours into the middle of night to do that and then to put it back. And luckily, it worked after that and nothing went wrong. But I do not look forward to do it all over again.

Hence I think a jam release mechanism is a must for a laminator and for this I have to be very careful never to insert thicker documents to laminate. If that is the case, it works perfectly, and it is well worth its value.

This item is great for the price. The only drawback I find is that there is no release if item is insereted incorrectly. This causes a huge jam and will ruin your item.If you want to release the item you have to unplug it and let it cool and then pull it out slowly.

I used this the day I received it. Everything about it is great. Compared to those listed in office supply catalogs, you can't beat it. The price (under $20,) it heats up fast, it laminates fast and it stores easily. I highly recommend this product.

This GBC HeatSeal Creative Laminator works great and is just about perfect for home or small office use. We like to laminate our signs that we put up in our small business and like that this machine can handle full letter (8.5" x 11") sized pages.

The unit is easy to use and basically "just works". My only word of caution is to be sure that you feed the sheets in straight and carefully to avoid a jamming the feed and messing up the laminate.

Recommended!

I got this for my work. Staples sell laminating machines for $100. This is certainly a lot cheaper and produces exactly the same results. I put 50 small sheets through this the other day with no issues.
