Aren't sure which laminator is right for your company? Here are some things to
consider.
1. What type of items will you laminate? Photographs? Menus? ID Badges?
2. What ml thickness do you need to use?
3. What is your budget?

Your laminator can do a lot more than just laminate your company ID cards. That's
why you should take a bit of time to consider all the things you could do with your
laminator and choose accordingly to get the maximum value out of your investment.

Laminating is so popular because of the protection it provides. It also enhances the
appearance, making the colors more vibrant, and the print crisper. It also prevents
smears. Laminating protects your important documents by encapsulating them
between the plastic laminate, all the while keeping their professional, crisp
appearance for years to come.

Because you won't have to replace your documents or ID badges as often, over the
long term it will save your company money. As a business you watch your expenses
carefully, which is why laminating makes good business sense.

There are as many uses as there are choices in laminating machines. One of the most
popular uses of the laminator is for ID cards. If this is how you plan to use your
laminator take into consideration the number of cards you plan to laminate on a
monthly bases and your budget. Then find the best laminator for your job.

Of course there are many other uses for your laminator. Common business uses
include:

-ID Badges and Tags
-Magnets
-Menus
-Placements
-Checklists
-Emergency Procedures
-Operating Procedures
-Contact Lists
-Customer Lists

In-house ID card printing has significantly reduced the cost of production. Add that
you can now easily laminate them in-house, that equates to even more savings.
Laminators range from under $200 to over $1000, so choose wisely. Choose a
laminator that's low cost but without the proper functions and your money is wasted.
However, choose a more expensive laminator with functions you won't use, and your
money is also wasted. Shop wisely. Business is all about the bottom line, so keeping
costs down makes good business sense.
