How can I get better results from my pouch laminator?

The benefits of laminating services are common knowledge today. Something that is less well known however is how to achieve the best results from them. The secret is to work with our professional team. Using our skills and experience, we provide items with the protection they need.

When people want to keep their documents durable, charts wipe-cleanable, and posters reusable, they laminate. Pouch laminators are very popular here because they are easy to use at home. However, you’ll need the equipment to last for a long time and deliver top class results too. If you want both of these things to happen, we recommend following the advice below.

Turn the heat up or down

Laminating servicesFirstly, you will have to turn the heat up or down depending on the circumstances. Your items could be coming out of the machine with wrinkles or bubbles. Maybe there are some curls on the corners. If this is the case, it is likely that your temperature is too high for the pouches you are using. It is best to consult the user manual to find out the details you need for using the right settings. This way, your documents will come out smooth, flat, and perfect.

However, you could run your item through the laminator and the pouch comes out cloudy. In this situation, you will likely have to turn the temperature up again. Speak to our team if you want to benefit from the UK’s leading laminating services. We always get the temperature and finish right.

Is everything clean in there?

Keeping things clean is important here as well. Sooner or later, the laminating machine is going to need cleaning. As you feed your pouches through, some of your film is going to occasionally stick to the hot rollers. This will gum the laminator up, causing documents to come out with chunks and bumps. The only solution is to clean.

There are multiple cleaning options available here. One possibility is to run a sheet of 80# stock through your laminator when it is still hot. This will let you pull the gunk off your rollers.

For superior results though, it is better to use a cleaning pad that is mildly abrasive. Pour a bit of denatured alcohol on your pad. Alternatively, use a mild detergent to wipe the melted film and debris off the rollers.
