Types of EZ-LAM Roll Laminators (aka EasyLam)

EZ-LAM Roll Laminators by Laminators SpecialtiesIf you’re in search of a high-quality roll laminator (found here) for your school or business, you may really enjoy using an EZ-LAM. These laminators, made by Laminators Specialties, have been around for well over a decade in one form or another. With several different versions of the EZ-LAM, which model should you consider using? I will cover all three models in this article.

To begin with, EZ-LAM used to be called EasyLam. Why the name change? EasyLam was the name of the laminators when they were produced by Banner American. After the company went out of business, Laminators Specialities took over the business and changed EasyLam to EZ-LAM. The quality is still the same and they are essentially the same laminator as they used to be. These laminators are all available with options that allow you to customize them.

When Laminators Specialities took over, they did drop a few of the EasyLam models including the EasyLam Green and the EasyLam II. Luckily we are still able to provide roll lamination film (found here) for all of the discontinued EasyLam roll laminators.

The three EZ-LAM roll laminators that survived the transition to new ownership are some of the best models available. These are the EZ-LAM School Budget, EZ-LAM Budget Pro and the standard EZ-LAM. Here is a little bit of information about the three:

  • EZ-LAM School Budget (found here) – This laminator is designed for low to medium-volume use in a school environment. Most schools are on a tight budget, but still need to laminate signs and banners. The EZ-LAM School Budget was designed just for this situation. While it isn’t terribly fast (3.5 feet per minute) and it only handles film up to 3 mils thick, it gets the job done right. This laminator can be used on many tables and desks and is very easy to set up and operate.
  • EZ-LAM Budget Pro (found here) – The EZ-LAM Budget Pro is a beefed up version of the School Budget. It includes the ability to mount material up to 3/16″ thick and is great entry-level machine for use in a print shop or copy center. It also has the ability to use all mil thicknesses of film including 10 mil.
  • EZ-LAM 27″ Laminator (found here) – This is the time-tested classic that has been around for years. It is used in businesses, copy centers, print shops and other organizations around the world. It can be used with film up to 3 mils thick and includes two rolls of 1.5 mil film. It can be used with larger core rolls of film using optional core adapters. It can also be built with features like cooling fans, a foot switch, side slitters and more.

All three of these laminators are solid products. The build quality is excellent. Unlike many manufacturers out there, Laminators Specialties uses steel side plates that are computer machined ensuring consistency in quality. We have had several of these machines out on our showroom floor and I have had the opportunity to use them myself. They are very easy to use and the quality of the laminated items is excellent.
