Functions perfectly with 5mil pouches.,
This review is from: Scotch Thermal Laminator Combo Pack, Includes 12 Assorted Pouches (TL902E) (Office Product)
Works PERFECTLY with 5mil laminating pouches. I bought no-brand 5mil pouches in a pack of 100 for $22 somewhere else on Amazon and it was a great deal. No need to spend lots of $$ on Scotch brand pouches when there are plenty available online for cheaper prices. This will be used in my store and I've laminated 30 pages in a row with zero difficulties. Super simple to use: put the page in the pouch, put the pouch in the machine and it does all the work.

Handy to have around the house!,
This review is from: Scotch Thermal Laminator Combo Pack, Includes 12 Assorted Pouches (TL902E) (Office Product)I snagged this as an Amazon Lightning Deal a few weeks ago for around $25. Like many of the other reviewers here, I don't need an industrial laminator for the classroom or office. I just wanted something on hand for when the need to laminate a sign or certificate or similar item came around. This is a fantastic piece of equipment to have around for light, infrequent use; especially at $25. It's now $60 so a bit tougher on the wallet for infrequent use.
My previous laminator experience was with a small device my mother had that I'd use to laminate photos or cards. Hers would top out at 3x5 cards so this is nice to now be able to offer to her for laminating bigger items. Hers would also run extremely slowly and often would need two passes through to fully laminate the sheets.
I am happy to say that this laminator is quicker and more thorough than hers. One pass takes about 75% the time (even for bigger items) and laminates completely the very first time... Read more

This review is from: Scotch Thermal Laminator Combo Pack, Includes 12 Assorted Pouches (TL902E) (Office Product)I waited quite a while to make the decision to finally buy myself a laminator but am so glad I did. I researched lots of different ones, read the reviews, and decided on this one. It's very lightweight, doesn't take long at all to heat up, and does a super great job of laminating my school reading work. I've been using the 3mm thermal pouches and couldn't be happier with the results. Plenty heavy-duty enough, easy to trim or cut out shapes. Love that I can actually cut the flashcards (or whatever) I make without worry of the laminate peeling away! Once I forgot that I had turned the machine on, and have since learned to set a timer to remind myself, and worried it would just be sitting there getting hotter, but it had turned itself off for safety. I turned it back on and it sure didn't take long for it to warm back up so I could finish my job. A few times I didn't feed the laminate in as straight as I would have liked and thought for sure I would end up with a curled edge, or... Read more
