[Amazon.ca] Scotch Thermal Lamintor (5 min warm-up, model TL902-C) on sale $18.98

Just got a CCCamel notification that the price for this thermal lamintor is now $18.98, regular price is usually 29.99. Not the lowest it's been but not that bad.

Cheers!

Has anybody tried the AmazonBasics laminating sheets? Are the comparable to scotch brand?

I bought the AmazonBasics laminating sheets a while back, I didn't find anything wrong with them. Quality is very decent, now mind you, I've not used scotch sheets so I can't compare.

They're good. I only have a few sheets of the Scotch ones, but I'd say they were pretty comparable, and a really good deal for the price.

I tried the one that came with the laminator and bought a pack of Amazon and they’re the same. Would buy the Amazon since it’s cheaper

Thanks OP. We’ve been making learning material for our kids during COVID and have been using packing tape on paper glued to construction paper. No one laugh.

I went through about 70 sheets of the AmazonBasics laminating sheets in the past few months making various Covid warning signs. They look yellow before laminating, but after laminating they are clear and don't distort or discolour the contents inside. They don't allow the 8.5 x 11 paper to slip and fit perfectly prior to laminating, so the end result is that the edges are not totally balanced after laminating. They are quite thick but still can be cut one sheet at a time using standard paper cutter if you are making small laminates.

Scotch Thermal Laminator Machine, 5 Minute Warm-up, 9" Input, for Laminating Sheets Up to 5-Mil Thick: Scotch Thermal Laminator: Amazon

I've had my eye on this product for awhile, this is the cheapest I've ever seen it. I've never personally used it, but the reviews and ratings are pretty good.

Note: You have to buy the laminating sheets (laminating pouches) separately.

The amazon basics laminating pouches are cheaper than the ones bundle with the laminator:

I almost complete the purchase, but when I think about how many lamination I have done in the last 10 years, I just cannot justify the purchase.

According to customer Q&A, this laminator seems to be compatible with Amazon Basics laminating pouches.

Yes, they absolutely are. The amazon basic pouches are the same quality as the scotch ones for a lot cheaper when bought in bulk (and even more when on subscription). We go through thousands of lamination sheets at my offices every year and the Amazon Basics ones save us a ton.

The scotch machines are also great as well- we usually only break about 1 or max, 2 machines per year. Which is pretty impressive considering each machine probably laminates about 2000 sheets before it goes poop (usually the roller mechanism inside stops working).

Thanks for the headsup, OP- I've ordered another one as a backup for one of my offices.


Edit: 2000 sheets, not 200 sheets before the machines break lol

The Amazon basic sheets are not good. It does stick to the paper and sometimes will wrinkle when going through the machine.

I go through 200+ laminate sheets each month.

Stick with Scotch, it's not expensive when on sale.
