The compact Inspire laminating machine offers incredibly easy one step laminating - all you have to do is plug it in! The laminator warms up in 7 minutes and is able to laminates any document up to 9" wide. Working at a laminating speed of 10" per minute, the Inspire is perfect for scrapbooking, kids projects or any home office project. During the warm-up, you can prepare documents for laminating by loading each into a thermal laminating pouch. The Inspire machine can laminate letter or legal size documents in a 3 mil pouch. Slightly less flexible 5 mil pouches can also be used to laminate items up to photo size (4" x 6"). A carrier is not required, making every laminating project super simple. When you need to laminate at home, the Inspire pouch laminator is your best choice. Items laminated with the Inspire, and GBC pouches, are always crystal clear, free of bubbles and perfectly preserved to last. The high gloss finish also helps laminated items look great on display. Laminating is easy, fast and fun!
