Hi Folks,

I wish to buy a Laminator to laminate & protect documents of various sizes, like photos and certificates. Can anyone please advise me what type to buy. I'm all confused & don't know which to choose.

Please HELP!!!

It doesn't really matter.
I purchased the cheapest I could find, and 4 years later its still going.
Even the laminating sheets I shop around for, and get wherever they're the cheapest.

Hi Technotiger, yes it looks good and & it's got Hot & Cold. The price is fantastic too. The one review was good too.

Hi SB23, if I'm not being too inquisitive what one do you have please.

Its actually called the a4 Laminator, honest.

My wife and I purchased it from one of the tv auction programs. It came with a safe, which we also use, and with P&P was less than £20, a bargain!.
The sheets I normally get from one of the large supermarkets, as I find they are cheaper, but it still works well.

That was a bargin. Yes, sometimes we also watch these Aution TV programs & you can really get things almost for a Thank You.

You can get Laminators as cheap as £9.99 from The Stationery Shop - they are nationwide - and they sell the pouches cheap, too. I have one and it works extremely well. Yes - as SB23 says they are named "A4

Honest - it is not worth paying more for one.

Another place to have a look is the DIY stores, alot of them sell this type of thing now, as its all to do with home security.

Mine, although its called the a4 laminator, is from the office institute, I expect its a brand I'll never hear from again, but any make will do, as long as it does what it says on the box.

I got an A3 one from Netto a while back. Fantastic value at £14.99.
Make sure it's "carrier-less" most are these days.
