Kids are in school and projects need to be created or they are coming home and maybe you want them to last longer. Zoe is brining home art projects she made in Kindergarten and I want to preserve them. Laminating objects like her school bus she brought home will keep them protected from water and handling.
And Fellowes sent me the Saturn2 95 Laminator just in time for all our home and school projects. There are some great deals on Fellowes’ Saturn 2 95 at Staples and Amazon. Fellowes also has an online ideas center that features many back-to-school laminating ideas and product giveaway opportunities.
The Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator is a family-friendly machine ideal for the home or home office:
· HeatGuard Technology encouraging a safe environment for a home with children, as it traps heat inside.
Cold setting for laminating self-adhesive pouches
Ready in 5 minutes and laminates up to 12" per minute
· Advanced Temperature Control allowing for both hot and cold laminating capabilities to ensure consistent, smooth results.
Thermal & Cold laminating style capable of using laminating pouches up to 5 mil in thickness
· Release Lever making it easy to remove or re-center stalled pouches and prevent jams.
Designed for small office applications
Laminates up to 9.5" wide documents
Includes laminating starter kit
2 year manufacturer warranty
When you turn on the power to the Fellows Saturn2 95, you select either "cold" mode (for self-adhesive laminating) or hot. If you select hot, you have to pick either 3 mil, 4 mil, or 5 mil. After that, it takes the laminator about 5-6 minutes to warm up. Once it’s warmed up, you feed the top of your page into the laminator and it automatically rolls the page through the device. For my first lamination I ended up choosing the first time Zoe wrote down rhyming words, I selected the 3mil and placed the page in the lamination sheets and then loaded it into the self feeding laminator.
It is small and light, which is great for putting it in tight spaces and carrying and storing it anywhere. It is about 5.5 inches wide at its widest point and only 18 inches long. The cord is long enough to give you some distance from the nearest outlet. It comes with 10 sheets of 3ml high gloss laminating material to get you started, and instructions for using the enclosed roller cleaning sheet. Although no instructions for using the laminator are included in the box, I found it easy to use. If you’ve never used a laminator before you might be a little confused but just turn it on, select your setting and load the paper. It works great, quickly and the laminator stays cool so you don’t have to worry about your kids burning themselves.
