Laminator Info



Happy Saturday to you!

I get emailed at least once a week about a laminator question. I am going to be honest and tell you that I only respond to about 1/2 of these emails. I swear.. as many times as I have answered this question I can never remember the answer.

My laminator is in my office- and I read most emails on my phone. I am never in my office and I always forget what brand I own.

Here is my info…


I owned a small laminator for probably 4-5 years and used it A LOT!  It was a Monroe ML900 brand.  This little guy worked flawless for all those years. It never gave me a minutes trouble.

Then one day.. it died! Bless his heart!

I immediately went to Amazon and ordered a new one.

I didn’t do any research or look for another brand/model. I knew this one worked great and I reordered the same exact one.

Except.. when I got the box it was not the same little guy. They shipped me the wrong one! I was furious!

As much as I love Amazon.. their complaint/problems with your order system is terrible. It took days of me trying to get someone to reply to my messages. It sat in the box unopened because I wanted to return it and get my trusty little Monroe ML900 back.

Finally, I was in a bind and I just plugged the new guy up and started using it. The new brand and model is a Techko LM1910.


It worked just as well as the Monroe brand except it took 1/2 the time to warm up. The Monroe brand would take 20-25 minutes to get hot. This little baby takes less than 10 minutes. Probably closer to 5. I have had the Techko LM1910 for over a year now and it has not given me one minutes of trouble.

I hope I don’t jinx it!

Now, for the pouches. I buy my pouches at Sam’s Club.


{except the box I buy doesn’t look like this.}

I buy them at the store.


Here is what the box looks like at the store.

200 pouches are $20.68. Trust me people.. this is a deal!

I've been meaning to invest in one of these! It'd be nice to laminate at home when I find something new, make it, etc.. You just convinced me! haha

I use the 3m laminator and love it. I recently discovered the laminating sheets at Sam's and they are great. They are a bit smaller that the kind from 3M, but MUCH CHEAPER! I also got the sheets from Amazon and they are good too, but the price at Sam's can't be beat.

I never knew Sam's Club carried these! I don't have a membership but my parents do...definitely need to see about making a trip there now! Thanks for sharing! :)

Just went to Sam's this afternoon and stocked up on 2 more. 200 pages seems like a lot, but I go through those babies quick!!

I love my laminator too!! Thanks for the info about Sam's Club! I didn't know they sold the pages there!! This is 100x better than buying the 50 pages at Walmart.

Cheers To School

Thanks for sharing! I've been looking into getting a personal laminator and I'm trying to get the best one for a good price!
