Laminator Giveaway!

My doorbell rang the other day and let's just say, I wasn't dressed ready to open the door (PJs at 3pm anyone??).  I went anyway and luckily the UPS guy was already walking back down the street.   Look what was waiting for me:


My very own laminator!!!  It is a Papermonster laminator from MyBinding.com.  To say I was excited is a little bit of an understatement.  I ripped that puppy open right away.  Here are some of the things I noticed right away:

1. It's nice and compact.  It laminates pages 8 1/2 x 11 as well as 11 x 17 pages but it is so small!  I put my IPod next to it as a reference:


2.  It comes with stickers so you can decorate it!  Umm how cool is that?


3. Underneath the laminator, there is space to store the cord.  Let me tell you how many products that I own that have wires going every which way and get caught in everything.  Problem solved!




Now it's time to get started!  I turned it on and waited for the blue light to come on:


While I was waiting, I put my materials into the sleeve.  Just open it up and lay the pieces inside:


We are ready to go!  On it's way through the laminator:


Yes, it is that much fun to watch!  It was so quiet as it was laminating as well.  No noise at all!  And it worked pretty quickly as well.  Only took a few seconds to laminate the 11 x 17 size pouch.  Look how great it turned out:


I was very surprised by how durable the laminate is.  Our school laminator is nice, but it tends to be a little flimsy.  This one is not at all!  I was so very impressed! 

I am now completely obsessed with this thing.  I have already laminated so much stuff since I opened it - anything I can get my hands on!  Now I have to cut it out...that's the hard part.

But today is your lucky day!  MyBinding.com has offered to give away one of these amazing home (or classroom) laminators to one lucky follower!  Just enter through the Rafflecopter below.  Good luck!

  75. If I win then the laminating pouches will quickly become my favorite. Otherwise, I would probably have to got back to the binders and dividers. I am such a binder organizer with my school stuff it is not funny. I NEED the laminator to just further my addiction to have EVERYTHING made to last and of course stored in a binder. LOL

  123. Dying for a laminator and a cameo!!! Just love the teaching toys! The one at our school is flimsy laminate too and peels easily. Plus, the school is HUGE so I have to wait for it to get done, can't do it myself---the librarians do it---and it's so far to walk each time I want to laminate something. Yes, pitiful, but that's the truth!

  169. Soooo awesome! I wonder if the laminating sheets are expensive. Doesn't matter really, I would spend the money on them. And I totally agree with you about the using work laminators. As soon as they put a new role of laminating sheet on it, it gets crowded that night and then within a week it is empty again. It is ridiculous. I would love to win this!

  173. Laminating is that thing that could become my obsession! Right now we are not allowed to laminate our own things at school because our machine is so old and our school (like many) is poor and can't afford a new one. So we have to drop off our work and believe that someone else is going to care for it like we do. I spent three hours cutting and pasting a quote to hang outside my classroom and when it came back from the laminating process three of the separate parts were laminated on top of each other and in the wrong order- NOOOOOOO! So I started looking into machines (personal and not...) and coincidentally I saw the posting for this giveaway! I would overly enjoy my own machine... and I love all the extras that mybinding.com has to offer. Some things that could be used individually and privately, but can also please an entire school population! I really enjoyed my browse... especially through the boards and easels and personal laminator like the one in the giveaway... I can't Choose!
