How To Laminate Documents With A Pouch Laminator

How To Use A Pouch LaminatorPouch laminators are great machines to have on hand for a variety of reasons. They can be used to laminate menus, protect pictures, create professional business cards and much more. Not only does lamination film protect, but it also provides stability and a professional sheen to documents.

If you already own a laminator, have lost your manual or perhaps are looking for a machine and want to know more, this “how to” guide should help you out. I am going to provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to use a pouch laminator.

While laminators vary from one model to another, most work in a similar way. If you know how to use one model of laminator, you should pick up very fast on another model. I hope you enjoy this guide.

Use A Pouch Laminator In 6 Easy Steps

Step 1 – You will first want to plug your laminator into the wall and turn it on. Warm-up time ranges from laminator to laminator, but you should be ready to go in 15-20 minutes (with even the slower laminators).

Step 2 – Choose the size of laminating pouch film you want to use. Remember, many pouches have a seam along the edge.

Step 4 – Put the laminating pouch into a protective laminating carrier. These carriers usually come with laminating film. While some laminators claim you don’t need to use them, I still consider it to be a good idea.

Step 5 – Turn on the motor (if it isn’t already on). Place your pouch and carrier into the entrance of the laminator. The laminator should grab the pouch automatically and begin to pull it through.

Step 6 – After a few seconds, the pouch should come out the opposite side of the laminator finished and ready to use. The pouch, depending on the laminator, may be hot to the touch. Inspect the pouch and make sure everything looks good. If everything looks good, you should be ready to insert another pouch.
