Subject: Alive again! [Amazon] Swingline Laminator - $16 rss

Amazon has the entry-level Swingline laminator for $15.99, free shipping with prime. Normally $25-30. CCC all-time low is $15.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NB7EZH8/?tag=article-boardgameg...

UPDATE: pink and red are still cheap. Amazon Warehouse also has a few used units for cheaper, some Like New quality.

Good for:
Score Pads (seal, then use a dry erase marker)
Player Aids
Other Flat, Flimsy Bits (player boards for Takenoko)

This laminator is slightly larger than the Scotch one that is frequently discounted to the same price, but also seems to have more consistently positive reviews. I got it the last time it came around and couldn't be happier with it. Takes about 5 minutes to come to temp, feeds through easily.

Need some laminating pouches? 3 mil will be a bit floppy, 5 mil will be stiffer (think restaurant menu).

BGG users frequently recommend the Apache pouches for bang for the buck, 5 mil (actual measurement seems to be slightly thinner). Currently out of stock, but will likely be back in stock soon - typically $12 for 100. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FORXKOC/?tag=article-bo...

I also love this corner rounder to make the laminations look a bit more professional and take the edge off the sharp corners ($9, free shipping): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0076FJ7SS/?tag=article-bo...

Thanks, picked this one up. As far as I can tell, same unit, different color.

Re: DEAD [Amazon] Swingline Laminator - $16
With the Apache 5 mil pouches sold out, are Best Print or Crystal Clear 5 mil pouches good alternatives?
If not, which other brand 5 mil pouches would be recommended?

I love this baby. Picked it up about a month ago (from one of these posts!) and use it for all of my dividers in my Star Wars LCG and Legendary.

And now Amazon says my order was shipped but lost in transit! Very weird! I have never before lost an order. I´m not sure if they acutally shipped it in the first place.

I've actually had that happen once before. It showed up a month later looking beat up, but it wound up free so...

Just as an update, there looks to be cheap prices on other colors (like pink) and some Amazon Warehouse returns for even cheaper, although those are obviously more of a gamble.

Any good pouch recommendations. Some look good on their site, but a few reviews claim they are lousy. Is it worth paying for the 3M ones?

I use a 3M laminator with 3M pouches (3mil) and have only had one problem with them. I tend to trim fairly close and had a Takenoko player board with some edge fraying/slight de-lamination (but those are quite thick and thicker things tend to need a border for a good seal).
