Rated 5 out of 5 by TomL Best Laminator available...
I consider this review a 'no brainer'. Why? First off, you are dealing with a time proven company.. Fellowes .. Not only does this company have high quality products that stand the test of time and have been doing it for years, they believe in their products and stand behind then with quick responses to any questions you may have and are there if you ever need them. This Venus2 125 Laminator has the fastest warm-up time, no more concern as to what thickness pouches you are using. Everything is automatic and the final product comes out picture perfect every time without any bubbles or any other imperfections. The unit is very well built, solid and good looking. I can't say enough about this laminator.. GET IT you WON'T be disappointed..

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.
