AmazonBasics 13-inch Thermal Laminator


  • Laminates documents up to 13 inches wide
  • Fast 4-minute warm up (the LED indicator light lets you know when it’s ready)
  • Jam-release lever prevents jams
  • 2 heat settings for 3-mil or 5-mil laminating pouches (The laminator’s 3-mil heat setting works best for everyday documents, photos, and card stock, while its 5-mil heat setting comes in handy for thinner papers, providing a thicker lamination).
  • 270 mm/min laminating speed

Directions for use:

  1. Turn the switch on the back of the laminator from the "Off" setting to 3mil (3mil is the size of the laminating pouches we purchased)
  2. Wait 4 minutes for the laminator to heat up.
  3. Once the laminator's "ready" light displays green, you may start to use it.
  4. Place the item you want laminated in the appropriate size pouch.
  5. Line the pouch up with the lines displayed on the front of the machine, with the seam of the pouch going in (see photo on front of machine).
  6. Next, gently feed the pouch into the machine.
  7. When finished, push the power button to the off position.
