Do you have a laminator? I do…well I have two now. I bought a cheap one a couple years ago when Big Sis started Tot School, I had big plans for that laminator. I got it for a great deal on Amazon for $20. It came with two laminating sleeves and both got jammed while I was trying to work with it, I never bought any more sleeves for it and it’s just sat in my cupboard collecting dust.
When I was contacted by Fellowes to try out and review the Saturn2 95 laminator AND do a giveaway (!!!!!) I jumped at the chance. I get quite a few opportunities to review products, but that’s not what this site is about so I tend to turn them down but this was a great opportunity to share a great product and give back to you, my readers!
Okay, so lets get down to it! I opened the box and was totally excited to find 10 laminator sleeves, my mind started reeling about all of the things I could laminate. I’ve been wanting to make some playdough mats so that was the first thing we did.
It took about 5 minutes for the laminator to heat up and then it was ready to go. I placed the paper in the laminator sheet, and fed it through the machine. The machine immediately took the sheet and fed it through, no jams, no issues and the laminating is thick. Perfect! Big Sis was so fascinated by watching the machine.
Next, I laminated a paper doll from the Fellowes Idea Center.
The idea center has some great ideas for moms and teachers. Along with this printable paper doll there are meal plans, chore charts, menu planners, to-do lists, and more. You can laminate any number of those things and use a dry erase marker or overhead wet erase pen to write on them week after week. I also laminated some writing paper for Big Sis to practice writing her letters. This will save money and trees, it’s a win-win!
The laminating possibilities are endless!
Some of the benefits of this particular model are:
- HeatGuard™ Technology: Double-walled insulation keeps heat inside so laminator is comfortable to touch, making it safe for homes with children
- Advanced Temperature Control: Hot and cold laminating capabilities for high quality, smooth results every time.
- Jam Release Lever – Permits easy removal or re-centering of stalled pouches.
- Laminates 3mil – 5mil thermal pouches and cold self-adhesive pouches
