We want to buy a laminator for home use, mainly for photo albums, pictures and documents. I’d like to keep the price less than $100. First of all, I don’t know if we should get a cold or hot machine. I’m looking at the Sircle HQ-330 hot 13” wide machine and the Xyron 900 cold, 9” wide machine. Which one would you recommend and how do I pick the correct film out for each machine. I’m guessing we want standard clear.
If you need to keep your purchase under $100, then the Sircle HQ-330 pouch laminator should work just fine. This is a versatile laminator with many high-end features not typically found in comparable laminators in its price range. You can insert documents up to 13 inches wide into the HQ-330. It is a very user-friendly model and does a good job of laminating photographs. When it comes to photograph preservation and presentation, we highly recommend a hot laminator over a cold laminator.
The Sircle HQ-330 has a reverse lever to help you quickly back out jammed documents and photos. The machine also has an LED indicator that lets you know when the laminator is warmed up. This laminator is also environmentally friendly.
This pouch laminator automatically slips into power saving mode when it is not in use. The HQ-330 can handle lamination film up to 5 mils thick. We highly recommend that you use a clear lamination pouch with your photographs to ensure a brilliant shine to the photo for several years. You can view our wide selection of pouch laminators here, most of them are in your price range.
