Q: If I have creases in something that I have laminated, is there a way to get the creases out?

submitted by Michelle - 6 years ago
  • A: is just the laminate creased or the document also?

    submitted bymickey - 6 years ago
  • A: Typically no, I've tried to re-run it amd sometimes that helps but not much.

    submitted byHillless - 6 years ago
  • A: We recommend that you connect with our product support team at 1-800-328-6276 Mon-Fri 8am-4:30pm CT so we can gather details and assist. Thanks for asking!

    submitted by3M Social Engagement - 6 years ago
    Brand expert
  • A: Usually this means the device isn't all the way heated. Wait a bit longer for it to heat up and that should take care of the creasing.

This is my first time buying a laminate machine because I realized I really needed it for work. At first I was a little nervous to buy it cause I wasn’t sure how it would work. Tried it out and I absolutely love it! Super easy to use and very compact!

Tray Broken

Charlotte B - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
After 5 or so uses, the tray that help feed the pouches correctly has broken. It will not stay up any longer, which makes guiding the pouch nearly impossible. Before the tray broke it worked great. I can't reccommend this product due to this.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Though I have followed instructions closely, once fed through, the lamination does noteasily feed out of the front of the machine, which leads to jams and a ruination of the paper being laminated. I have tried calling but without a reciept, there is nothing that will be done for me. As a teacher, I cannot afford to replace this. STAY CLEAR OF THESE MACHINES...junk!

My Scotch Laminator caught on fire I had just plugged it in and it immediately began making spark sounds, then smoke started to come out. When I looked at it I could see fire inside the laminator and immediately turned it off. Before this my laminator was not passing the sheets to be lamintated and I had to give it a few attempts before it feed through the laminator.

Do Not Recommend

Miss V - 6 months ago, Verified purchaser
Truly dislike this laminator. The back flap that feeds the laminating sheets through is broken and doesn’t stay up. When I looked, a little plastic piece that keeps the flap up broke. Very poor quality. Sheets also start to turn sideways during the feed and ruins the paper I’m laminating. Threw this in the garbage since the return window is closed and purchased an A3 laminator, which is what I should’ve done to begin with. Spend the money and buy something better than this model.

I have had the laminator for about 2 years and only use it at the end of the school year for a couple things. I used it yesterday for about 10 sheets. Today it simply will not turn on. I have seen this in several other reviews too! Did anyone find a solution?

The small pin that hold the paper feed broke on the first use. The laminator works great, but without a properly functioning feeder tray, I have to be careful or I get crooked or wrinkled laminated work. I have wasted time and money trying to make this work properly. Not worth it.

Overall, the product is great. I had used the 2 pouches that came with the machine. All that said, it wasn't clear what size the pouches were; either 3 mm or 5 mm (it was 3 mm). I just assumed it was 3 mm because when I turned on the laminator, the default setting was 3 mm. The lamination went smoothly, and there were no problems whatsoever.
