this product is great for home use. it does take awhile to heat up, but is awesome. i use generic lamination pouches with it and the 5mil works better than the 3 mil samples it comes with. i'm using it to laminate letter size pages. Bible studies that i print on the computer, and then laminate so i can use in my hot tub. it works terrific! i've also made bookmarks using letter size pouches, and have put 3 hole punches so i can put lessons in a binder. the bookmarks and 3 hole punches work great and are waterproof, as long as the cuts and holes are in the lamination part of the pouch only, and not on the paper. so i cut the paper before i laminate it so i have room to 3-hole punch or cut into bookmarks. for the bookmarks though i had to round the corners as they were very sharp. this is an awesome product. it's slow, so i wouldn't recommend if you have high volume or little patience.

We bought this laminator for a project I was working on for our toddler. I called a couple office supply stores and it was going to cost over Twenty dollars to laminate the project. I opted to purchase the laminator for just over the cost of this 1 project. I have never laminated anything and I was impressed. Without reading the instructions I was able to laminate my project. It was a blast. Now I can't imagine not owning a laminator. It is great for our daughter. I have also used it to create items (tic-tac-toe games, flowcharts, door signs, calendars, etc. ) that can be used with a dry erase marker. This is cost-effective (saving ink, paper, and time of printing and reprinting) and is good for our environment. I have also laminated pictures without problem. I don't know why for home use you would need anything fancier (more expensive) than this laminator.

If you have small children and you plan to use all kinds of flash cards, even decks of cards, and photos, you will surely want to buy one of these laminators. The price is fair, the results are great, and you can be as creative as you want in placing photos, cards, certificates, your child's work, and any other mementos into the thermal laminating pouch, and after warming up the unit, carefully slip it through the opening on the laminator, and Voila! You can laminate business cards, bank IDs, personal documents, recipe cards or sheets, your child's art work (unless of course it's on canvas), or is 3-dimensional.
Professionally, I have used gigantic, expensive and humongous laminating machines for work-related items; but that was work-related. However, for anything measuring up to 8.5" by 11", this will do the job well. You will be able to laminate cardstock, if you are creating flash cards; cardstock has a paper weight of 64 plus.
No more worrying about your little one's fingerprints, nose prints, or sticky fingers; these laminating pouches, when thermally adhered, will last a long time. Check it out; it's not an expensive household item. Be sure to see my review of the Thermal Laminating Pouches, following this; they are a perfect fit.

Excellent Laminator for the price. Used for approximately 20 documents so far. Each one has been exceptionally smooth without bubbles.

I have been using this laminator (with the included sheets) for a few weeks now and it really is a great product! Three pieces of advice:
#1. Be sure to leave WAIT until the green light turns on before you put a page through.
#2. Put the page through a second time upside down (I've seen this fix a few tiny bubbles)
#3. REMEMBER TO TURN IT OFF! It's great that its relatively silent, but I forgot to turn it off and I left it running over the weekend! It continues to work, but I can't imagine the wear that put on it! An auto-off feature would be wise if it detects no "use" for 30 minutes.

I bought this to laminate some pictures and some ID cards. It works very well for this purpose. I have had no problems with insufficient sealing but I do admit that it takes a while to get to optimum operating temperature. Still if you're not in a hurry, this laminator will get the job done well. For the seventeen dollars I paid, it was well worth it.

(I'm noticing that some are charging in excess of thirty dollars for this laminator.... for that price, you can get a better more heavy duty one.)

I am a pediatric occupational therapist and work with students who have sensory activities and movement breaks built into their school days. I purchased this laminator to be able to work from home to laminate picture cards of different exercises and activities for the students to choose from during their breaks. This laminator works perfectly! The finish looks just as professional as when I used to use the huge laminator at one of my schools. For anything 8.5x11" or smaller, it is the perfect solution. I even accidentally left it on overnight and it did not damage the surface of my desk on which it was sitting. Highly recommend.

I'm an educator and a parent and needed an inexpensive but reliable laminating machine for small-scale projects such as laminating worksheet masters, my daughter's piano sheet music, etc. This laminator fit the bill perfectly. I'm not much of a gadget person and dread technical operating manuals, but this laminator came with easy operating instructions, and I was able to laminate within 15 minutes of opening the box!

The laminator does take awhile to heat up (I used the 5 mil setting), but other than that it worked perfectly. One caution as mentioned in the instructions is to avoid overheating, and if the sheets are fed in correctly, there will be no jams. All in all, I am very satisfied with this laminating machine and look forward to getting lots of use from it.

This laminator is wonderful! I felt safe using it with my young kids around because The body does not get hot. It also has a safety mecanism to release if I need to stop the process and get the project out of the machine. It is light weight but very durable and stylish. As a homeschooling mom I use it a LOT! It also warms up quicky so I dont hesitate to turn it off when Im done!

I bought this laminator for lots of various school projects. I haven't had one bad lamination yet. It's easy to use, lightweight, and easy to store away. I like that you have the option of a cool or heated lamination and I don't need anything that's more than 5 mil thick. I especially like the release lever in case you slide in your lamination in crooked.
