Tuesday, May 29, 2012 Laminator Review and Giveaway

I love doing crafts and projects with my son! He also loves to match animal flashcards, trace his letters and color lots and lots of pictures!!

The only problem that I have is that I have no way to save them or preserve some of his best work or his flashcards so he can use them over and over again! Once he uses them a couple of time, they get crumpled, bent or ripped and I am forced to throw them away.

I have always wished for a laminator more times than I can count and recently became my fairy godmother and granted me my wish!! is an Oregon-based family-owned company. They specialize in binding machines and supplies, laminators and supplies, 3-ring binders, whiteboards, and so much more. Their large warehouse space is full of products ready for immediate shipment and they offer free shipping on all orders over $75. also staffs a customer service department, ready to answer questions, recommend products, take orders, and anything else you might need.

I generously received the awesome GBC 9" Creative Laminator which is specifically designed for home, school, or small office use, and has the great quality GBC brand behind it! This laminating machine offers a 9" wide throat that is designed for use with 3 MIL and 5 MIL laminating pouches that are up to 8.5" x 14" (legal) size.

The best part about the GBC 9" Creative Laminator is that it is economical making it a great option for a home user who wants to create craft projects, signs, bookmarks, placemats, drink holders, luggage tags, ID badges and stickers.

  • 9" throat for use with a variety of pouch sizes
  • Laminates up to 5 MIL pouches
  • Warm up time is approx. 6 minutes
  • Operates at a fixed speed of 10" per minute
  • Photo quality lamination

I love how small and economical this laminator is so I can fit it in our craft corner without taking up a lot of room. However, it does a great job laminating all my letter sized projects including my son's artwork, signs I make, educational materials, recipes and pretty much anything I want preserved and protected!

I can't wait to save all my son's future artwork with this laminator and also make all our educational materials like flashcards, letter sheets, and tracing sheets last more than one or a couple uses! A laminator is perfect for protecting EVERYTHING from a two year old's touch! :)
