Tesco Value Laminator
Advantages: keeps those certificates safe
Disadvantages: Not the fastest,
=Tesco Value Laminator=
Since my daughter was little she's had certificates for different things from her ballet and tap through to headmaster awards for best behaviour, and first drawing, the memories that you keep in a box. Looking through them one day, I didn't want them hid away, but there is she wanted to look at them without the worry of sticky fingers.
=Tesco Value Laminator to the rescue=
I purchased mine in store for about £15, it is a Tesco own brand product and is available in store as well as from Tesco direct.
There was no laminator pouches included, I brought a box of 25 x A4 pouches and these were in the region of £2, again these were also a Value product.
=Using the Laminator=
The laminator runs from electricity, and has the cord built in, I found the cord to be quite short, and this can be a problem as I end up having to sit with the laminator on the bed.
From when you switch the laminator on it takes about 5 minutes to heat up, to identify this, this is when the light changes to green. If you do not wait for it to heat up it does not seal the document.
You put the item you want to laminate in the pouch, ensuring that the item is completely covered, if you have a piece of A4 paper, this gives a mm or two space around the edges. By leaving this border this is where the sealant sticks together.
You need to make sure that there are no wrinkles or creases in the paper before you insert it in to the laminator,
The laminator works slowly, it feels like it is only taking your document at a centimetre at a time, and when it comes through the other side, the document has been laminated and ready for use.
=Simple to use=
The laminator is simple to use but you do need to be careful as it gets hot, I have never had it overheat on me, but as generally the maximum items that I laminate at once is five items.
Once finished, the laminator needs to be cool before you can put it back into storage, (mine gets stored in the draw in the bed), I usually give it about 30 minutes for it to cool down.
This is a perfect introduction into the world of laminating, it is good value, simple to use and excellent value.
It comes with a 12 month guarantee.
Summary: A safe way to keep certificitates safe
