I purchased this laminating machine in a store, but wanted to give a definite positive review! I have had this machine running since I got it, and just love it! It's simple to use, works wonderfully and doesnt' take up a ton of space. I have a special needs toddler, who uses picture cards to communicate her needs, and this has made over 100 PECS cards for her book, and now she's even taking them to Pre-k to use them as well! Wonderful machine that is making my little one's life so much better! I am also having tons of fun using it for my small business for price lists and advertising! Great little machine!

This is a great little laminator, and I've used it even more than expected. But during a momentary lapse of reason, I tried to use a partial pouch - one that was not sealed on the bottom. They tell you not to do it, but I did anyway. Everything disappeared into the machine, and didn't come back out. It didn't look like I could open it up without destroying it, so I called their 800 number. They were so nice, and they sent me a mailing label to ship it back for free. They said that if they could fix it, they would do so and send it back. If they couldn't, they would send me a new one. All free of charge - which is incredible since it was my own fault for doing what they said not to do. I just got a new one in the mail. I only paid $30 for this, yet they replaced it free of charge when I messed it up. You just can't do any better than that!

I've been using a small card size thermal laminator to make cards, bookmarks and jewelry with for a few years now. A friend of mine gave me this one for my birthday as an upgrade.

I love it. It takes about 10 minutes to be ready and has an indicator light to show it's hot enough. A double roller system sends your document through the laminator smoothly at the right speed.
It's built for 3mm and 5mm lamination pouches which is fine for home and home office use.

If you do get a jam, the unit has a release button to pull out the document and unjam the machine.

It's very simple to use, intuitive but it also is illustrated with how to feed your document in as well. You put whatever your laminating into a sleeve then put it into the paper feed in the back of the machine.

There are 2 heat settings. One for 3mm and one for 5. It handles US Letter sized items easily.

Possible craft uses:
I use mine for jewelry, cutting out small images and sealing them into small pouches for less waste. After lamination, cut around the image leaving a margin of the clear laminate, use a small punch to make a hole and attach to jump ring
bookmarks- pressed flowers make wonderful mementos of special days out
recipe cards
dry erase boards
use in duct tape crafts with nice images. A couple comic book pages laminated can be taped together to make a very unique purse.

It's a good home laminator for home office and craft use.

Because of the 10 minute warm up time, I recommend having a few projects ready to go at a time so you can just do them all at once after the unit is heated.

Edit 12/09/2011- I've had it for over a year now, it's still running great.
Edit 12/14/2012- Still love it!

I have used a lot of at home laminator and ALL leave me disappointed except this one!

It leaves NO BUBBLES, heats up fully in less then 5 minutes and the pouches are easy to cut and do not separate.

My ADVICE: get the largest scotch pouches (9.99 on amazon) and place as many items as you want then just cut after. Once you cut the item, send it through once more to seal!

I got this for 16.99 on a Christmas deal but would have GLADLY paid the 100.00!!!! I have NEVER imagined I'd get KINKOS quality out of an at home laminator!

Some people said you have to roll it through more then once but that is NOT the case, they probably just used thicker materials then are required for the machine!

I am pleasantly surprised to say that this product works, and at such a great price. I have had it for about a year now, and have just taken it out of the package. I used to work at Staples, so was very reluctant to see the quality of seal this product would give me, compared to what I was used to. But, I have to say it again, WOW! I just put through the two test sheets with my recipe cards and they went through smoothly (was worried that you put the actual sheet through alone and not in a cover) and came out in under 10 seconds with a clear seal. As long as you don't cut on the seal (leave about a 1/4 inch around the edge) the seal should hold just fine for normal wear and tear. My only complaint is that the pouches provided were thin, but the booklet says you can use up to a 10ml pouch which I will be getting today. Overall, a great product and I am thrilled to have a product that saves me trips back and forth to the store (and a lot of money doing it myself) to laminate my recipe cards and items for my classroom. Try it out, you won't be sorry!

As to the people who said they had bubbles, your laminator may be too hot. I suggest letting it cool off, or using a cover to enclose your pouches to take away some of the heat. You may also be using the wrong ml sheet for the items you are laminating. Try putting the sheets through a second time, this may also get rid of the bubbles. As for the white foggy marks that some of you are seeing, this means that the machine isn't hot enough. You may have to change the setting and/or run the sheet through 2-3 times. If the foggy parts are off to the corners or center of the objects, it shouldn't affect your seal. But, I recommend running the pouches through again before you try to cut out your pieces and i.e. if the foggy part is on the seal, it may not be entirely sealed, running it through again after the machine is hotter should clear up the issue.
