Rated 5 out of 5 by HWoffice Fast, easy laminating
It takes a little getting used to the way the machine cycles while it is warming up and learning when to push the “standby” button. The machine beeps when it is ready for 3mil material. It has additional lights that come on one at a time as it heats up to receive thicker material. It can laminate up to 10 mil thick pouches. It automatically senses the thickness of the pouch. There are markings on the front of the machine to aid in guiding your pouch into the feeding slot. There is a little arrow marking the center and then guidelines to the right and left of center for different sized items. You have to be careful to feed the pouch in straight. There is nothing to butt the pouch up against to keep it straight, so you have to slowly and gently slide it into the machine while holding it straight. You have to be sure to push the item to be laminated up against the sealed edge of the pouch, which is the edge you feed into the machine first. Otherwise you will no doubt jam the machine and have a mess. It does, however, have a reverse function just in case of a jam. The machine does a very nice smooth lamination. I have used it on regular paper and on card stock in various sizes so far with good results.
This laminator has 6 rollers and will accept up to a 12.5 inch wide item. It heats up very fast, 30 to 60 seconds, and it feeds the pouch through faster than most lesser-priced laminators.
Fellowes offers different sized pouches and also a combination pack of 5 different sizes so you can laminate smaller items without a lot of waste. It is recommended that you use Fellowes brand pouches in this machine.

The laminator is so easy to use and has it's own self features, to save time when laminating. Quaility of the laminated documents are so smooth and looks so professional. Better than any I have seen.
