Amazon has the entry-level Swingline laminator for $9.98 free shipping with prime. Normally $25-30. beats the previous CCC all-time low by $5.
https://www.amazon.com/Swingline-Laminator-Lamination-Lamina...

Linked is blue; pink and red are also the same price (currently), but that won't last long.

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 $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...

Awesome...thanks.

With the sheets, this cost me about $20.

No more going to Staples for $2 a pop.

Take care,

Kevin

I got one of these last time it was a hot deal, and it's pretty handy.

Once you have it, you find so many things that need to be laminated whistle

Thanks for the heads-up. I also grabbed all three. As a side note, the corner-rounder shows something like a one or two MONTH shipping window, so patience is advised. Prime has so spoiled me...

Can you put a ton of cards into one paper sized sleeve and then cut them out or does it just heat seal the opening?

I've never used pouch lamination before, but this could be handy for party games people drink around or the giant sized Talisman character cards.

You can put multiple items in one sleeve and then cut. It seals around each item.

Awesome. Anyone have any idea how the laminate material is long term?

I'm worried about cracking or yellowing on the couple games I'd be interested in preserving (Talisman mostly)
