Can a Corner Rounder Cut Laminated Paper?

Corner Rounders & CuttersWe have a lot of customers that call wanting to know if they can use a corner rounder on laminated paper. One such example is a customer who was laminating appraisal cards for valuable gems and jewelry. He wanted to cut the corners off to make the laminated cards look more professional, not to mention he felt the laminated corners were a little dangerous. This is the answer I gave him.

To begin with, our Lassco and Akiles corner rounders can easily handle stacks of paper, card stock and chipboard without a problem. The dies on these corner rounders have been designed from the ground up to handle most thicknesses of paper. Can they handle laminated documents? Yes, but with a small catch.

While these machines can round the corners on laminated documents, it can potentially cause the blade to dull at a slightly faster rate. I emphasize “slightly” in that sentence. You don’t need to worry about the blade dulling after rounding a few stacks of laminated documents. They actually handle laminated paper quiet well.

I have personally used the Lassco CR-20 corner rounder to round the corners on business cards I personally made in house using a business card cutter. The rounder cut the corners off the cards in seconds, literally hundreds of them at once. The end results looked great.

You can find our wide selection of corner rounders here. If you have any questions about cutting the corners from laminated paper, please feel free to call us at 1-800-658-8788
