GBC make laminators for laminating documents up to A2 or name badges as small as a credit card.
The entry level laminator is the GBC Inspire A4 and can from ID size up to A4 and can laminate up to a thickness of 150 microns. The GBC Inspire A4 has just one switch, so very easy to use. There is a laminate exit tray, so that laminated sheets land flat and have less curl. Because the Inspire A4 is light and compact, it can be used almost as a portable laminator as it will fit into a small case.
The next level up in laminator terms is the GBC Fusion A3 laminator range that can laminate from ID size up to A3 size. the 1000L can laminate up to a thickness of 150 micron, whilst the 1100L can laminate up to 250 micron and the heavy duty GBC Fusion 3100L can laminate a 350 micron pouch.
The GBC Heatseal ProSeries 4000LM can laminate a huge A2 document or a tiny ID badge. The A2 laminator is also extremely fast with a lamination speed of 40 seconds for an A4 page, however it is possible to laminate 2 at a time side by side. It has a very quick warm up time of just 2 minutes and can laminate up to a thickness of 500 micron, which is like a stiff board when laminated.
Octopus supply a range of laminating pouches in different sizes and different thicknesses.
What laminator should you buy?
Deciding what laminator to buy is quite simple, you just need to decide what size of laminate you require and how much you are likely to use it.
The cheapest laminators tend to be slower. If you are intending to use the laminator for large numbers of documents then you may need a faster laminator. Additionally if you are going to laminate one off documents but on a regular basis, you may want to buy one that has a quick warm up time.
You also need to decide on the size of the laminating pouch you need to laminate, whether it is A4, A3 or A2 size. A2 laminators will laminate up and including A2 and A3 will laminate up to and including A3.
Finally you may need to laminate thicker pouches and the cheaper machines generally only laminate up to 150 micron, whilst the larger more expensive laminating machines can laminate up to 500 micron.
