Mini 2 Padding Press Review

Mini 2 Padding PressPadding paper is convenient, a great way to recycle used paper and is perfect for creating scratch pads. The entire process is extremely easy to do. So which padding press should you use? You may want to consider using the Mini 2 padding press (found here). I have personally used this model. This is my review.

The Mini 2 padding press is a fairly simple little device. It has a wooden base, a back wood plate and two side rails with clamping mechanisms. The entire padding press comes in a rectangular shaped box. Some assembly is required, but it isn’t difficult at all. The padding press is light enough that it can be placed on almost any table or countertop.

The Mini 2 can pad up to a 12 ½-inch stack of paper. That is a lot of paper. It is designed to be used with 8 ½ x 11-inch paper, but you can pad smaller paper in this padding press.

All that is involved in padding with the Mini 2 is taking a stack of paper, placing it on the base (making sure the paper rests flush against the back panel) and clamp the paper down. Once clamped, the back plate can be removed and glue can be applied.

The glue is of the consistency of Elmer’s glue and is applied by using a padding brush. You can find our padding brushes, glue, chipboard and accessories here. We sell glue in red and white colors. The glue takes about 10-15 minutes to dry. Once the glue is dry, the clamps can be releases and the pad can be removed.

The pad can then be cut down into smaller pads. This is a great way to recycle old paper and scratch pads are very nice to have on hand or on a desk. We have businesses, schools, churches and other organizations that use padding presses.

Overall I am impressed with the Mini 2. It is a very simple piece of equipment. Everything on the Mini 2 has been designed and measured to be used for padding paper. You can see a video demo of me using the Mini 2 here.
