    Default Laminator

    Im going to 'treat myself' and get a laminator.

    I just don't feel a complete childminder with out one!vha ha
    And would help when we are using glitter - ohh the ideas I've got!
    Any suggestions on where to get a good one for good price.
    Also any things to avoid! Never used one so tips would be helpful

    I love my laminator! Never had a problem with it. It's a 'Fellowes' laminator and I got it from PC World a couple of years ago.

    I spent all of £11 in Asda about 8 years ago and it is still going strong despite being taken apart yesterday because a lamination got struck around the rollers.

    seriously though, I had a argos basic laminater cheap as chips, and get the pockets when on offer or lidl and wilco, even the pound shop.

    happy shopping

    Question is do you go for the A4 or A3 laminator??

    I still haven't got the staple gun but I do have a binding machine and the glue gun

    Can I ask where you got your binder and was it expensive. I am almost the complete childminder I have a laminator, glue gun and a staple gun.

    Got mine from Argos a few years ago about £20 I think but then you have to buy the binding strips and I buy the front and back covers too. I bind my welcome pack, policies and my permission slips

    My own children love the laminator ... They often find things to laminate and I laminate certificates etc!

    Work wise I laminate lots...current favourite is making placemats and playdough mats.

    I have the glue gun ... staple gun needs replacing ... I could also do with a heavy duty stapler to get through thicker piles of paper! Am resisting the binder as I can't see that I'd use one!
