sounds like good deal! I love to laminate stuff - never thought I'd get so much use out of the thing!
I laminate all the cute little kid drawings, and they get used as bookmarks instead of lingering in a shelf.
I laminate all the games instructions as soon as they come into the house - that way they don't get all wrinkled and smudged.
I laminated the kids and my own chore cards... library cards...wallet pictures school name tags....
I would laminate my laundry if I could Razz

LOL that is a good price but I have been going to Office Depot for all my lamination needs. It is cheaper, faster, better quality plastic and the best part is...I DONT GOTTA DO IT! lol

I laminate my pictures and since they are going into picture pockets, I'm pretty happy with my standard 5ml sheets. I used to use OD and Staples for laminating my hand held design cards because of the sturdiness, but then people started using them as fans and walking away from them. I love laminating stuff and since I accidentally acquired 1000 sheets of full sheet lamination film, I laminate everything...paper, cardstock, kids, small dogs...bugs... you name it.

I laminate all my pics for my boards...I also use plastic corregated backing boards with a laminated poster to match my booth set up. It has survived a torrential downpour and all i had to do was dry them off with a hand towel...well worth every penny. I also lamiated my glitter tat posters at Staples for 2.00 each...another good choice.

I use my laminator LOTS! I edit all of my pics for my menu to look like polaroid pics with the name of each design on the "tab" part of the polaroid, then I laminate those suckers, attach little velcro dots on each corner....then my coroplast boards that fit into my wind sign sandwich board have the other side of the velcro dots in rows. That is how I switch out my designs on the fly.

Here's a pic -
