Pouch laminators are designed for moderate use in the office or home. These inexpensive machines are quite effective. However, for continuous, large-volume lamination projects, a roll laminator performs more efficiently.
Pouches can be bought with different thicknesses in micrometres (referred to as MIC). Standard home or office machines normally use 80-250 micrometre pouches, depending on the quality of the machine. The thicker the pouch, the higher the cost.
Certain pouches such as Butterfly Pouches can be used with a pouch laminator to form ID cards. Butterfly pouches are available with magnetic stripes embedded. Learn How to Create an ID With a Pouch Laminator
