I love these pouches. I use them with the Scotch laminator. They are very easy to use, and I never have air bubbles. The directions say you can send the pouch through the laminator a second time if it did not fully seal, but that has never been a problem for me. I teach, so I laminate a lot. It is so convenient to have a laminator and laminating pouches at home. I laminate regular size papers, and I laminate construction paper and card stock. All of these laminate well in these pouches. The pouches look a little cloudy out of the box. Do not let that worry you -- they come out clear after laminating.
Because I like to be able to scan quickly for the pros/cons, here you go... Pros: -easy to use -fully seals a variety of papers despite thickness (regular copy paper, construction paper, card stock) -you can use dry erase markers on laminated papers and they erase easily (this is great for the classroom) -preserves papers / documents / child's art work / recipes, etc.
Cons: -none other than the pouches appear cloudy straight from the box, and that can be worrisome (they laminate clear though!)
I have bought multiple packs of these laminating pouches, and I will continue to purchase them...no worries because they always come out perfect.
