SO... I avoided buying one when it came out cause I wasn't sure if it was worth the money. When I came around to deciding for sure, I read reviews and watched videos online. Some people stated that this is nothing but an overpriced laminator..
I decided to do my own experiment..
I was playing around with foiling projects using a laminator. I run the project through the laminator about 2-3 times. Although the projects come out fairly nice, it has imperfections- it's spotty and doesn't have full coverage. I'm a perfectionist.
I caved & bought this. As soon as I got this in, I started to foil some sample invitations I've designed for projects i have coming up. For comparison reasons, I used the same projects I used with the laminator.
Result? PERFECT coverage.
The difference between converage is VERY noticeable on a side by side comparison. The Minc Foil Applicator gave my project FULL coverage an I only ran the project through ONCE!!! It's wonderful. I can't wait to start my projects.
Here's what you need to know when considering this machine vs. using a laminator. The Minc Foil Applicator has different settings for different coverages. I picked one that I though would work best based on the manual (first time was a winner). Different types of projects, coverage, and paper makes a difference i think. The Minc ALSO has a more even heat distribution all the way across vs. a laminator that has more heat on the sides vs. the middle (in my opinion) AND, the Minc applies A LOT more pressure to the project when it runs through the machine.
If you're going to do a lot of projects in the future with foiling, this is definitely worth it.
After reading the reviews, I was waiting for my minc to start smoking. The smell of burning plastic lasted the entire time I was using the machine. Nothing happened though.
I noticed that it foiled some tiny parts that I did not want foiled.. on both my laser printed tag and the floral tag that came w the machine. The printer I have and used is HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color MFP M276. It's not a problem for me though.

So, I printed a black page w an HP Brochure Paper, used a Happy Birthday die, then ran it through the Minc. The foil I used was a wrinkled and it had a few creases. The machine missed two tiny spots & obviously, the "B" on the word birthday. I could still smell the burning plastic, but not really. I am loving this machine so far! <3
