What size laminator would be required to laminate 42” wide paper? Is a 42” laminator sufficient or something wider than the paper that is being laminated? Also, what is the price of a laminator with that capability?
Thank you for your help,
To laminate a document 42 inches in width, you would need a roll laminator that measures at least 45 inches in width. You’re in luck because Office Zone carries the largest selection online of laminators in this category. We highly recommend the ValueLam 4500 Roll Laminator from Banner American for your job. It can laminate items up to 45 inches wide. The ValueLam 4500 is a great value for the money ($3,997 as of March 2010). Most laminators in this class require a higher investment.
The ValueLam 4500 also carries a lot of high-end features in an economically priced machine such as a reverse function, emergency stop buttons located on right and left sides of the machine. It has a liberal one-year manufacturer’s warranty as well. Customers are pleasantly surprised to learn that the ValueLam only requires a standard 110/120v power outlet. Some wide format laminators require a 220v connection.
Last of all, if you try to laminate your paper with a roll laminator 42 inches in width, your document will not be completely encapsulated inside the film. And, if your document is mis-fed by just 1/8th of an inch, the end result will be a crooked, wrinkled mess.
