These are great and a great size for 'business card' sized projects. They work extremely well with the Scotch Thermal Laminator and with the Black & Decker Flash Thermal Laminator (though, the Scotch works a little better, IMO - it has been 'sealing' the cards around the edges much better in my experience - your experience may be different).

I have been using Avery Print Both Sides Business Cards for various projects (http://www.amazon.com/Avery-Two-Side-Printable-Business-08871/dp/B00006IBV7/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1433206910&sr=8-3&keywords=avery+white+clean+edge+business+cards+print+both+sides) ...

After printing and separating the cards ~ I insert them into individual sleeves - then run them one by one through the laminator (both sides ~ front / back) ... I have yet to have a problem with them unsealing / falling apart.

These thermal pockets, when you take them out of the package - they look like they may not be 'crystal clear' ~ but after laminating - they most definitely are.

My only 'gripe' about them is the thickness - I wish they could be a little bit thicker ~ they are not thin and flimsy by any means ~ they are sufficiently 'stiff' enough to slide easily into any card slot in your wallet ...

Okay - I think I've about covered it all. Hope some of this helps.

I purchased these laminating pouches along with other laminating pouch sizes and a thermal laminator for my wife's retail business so they can laminate both large and small items, tags and signage for their merchandising displays. I'd recommend that you write the thickness (3 mil, 4 mil or 5 mil) on the box so that it is quick and easy to identify the correct heat setting for your thermal laminator. Overall, these laminating pouches provide a great way to laminate smaller items such as coupons or business cards.

I do like the rounded corners. The lamination does what it's supposed to do. BUT, I don't like three things about this product: (1) the overall size and look after lamination; (2) the portion of the lamination material outside the ID card itself is excessive -- too wide; it should be no more than 1-2 millimeter; and, (3) on the box in upper right-hand corner it shows the dimensions "2" x 3.5" ", but it's a misrepresentation of actual dimensions. Too big for billfold. The dimensions are 2.32" x 3.70". I'm getting 2.25" x 3.70". Although the difference is minor, it makes a big difference when put in the billfold. Here is the product link: Scotch Thermal Laminating Pouches, 2.32 x 3.70-Inches, Business Card Size, 100-Pack (TP5851-100). I tested this product on AmazonBasics Thermal Laminator (B00BUI5QWS). A good quality laminator, worth the price.

Perfect for those business cards and other documentation I need to carry that would normally get ruined in my bag. Nice, stiff and very clear results. I use an inexpensive brand heat lamination machine that does a perfect job with this. It cost just a tiny bit more than the off brand versions, but I am glad I paid that couple of dollars more - I don't want to mess with ripples or waves in my laminated items - I want them to be perfect the first time. With this brand I am assured it works right every time.

We have taken to laminating pictures before we send them to family and these are perfect for wallet sized photos (I do trim just a little once they have been laminated but that is personal preference and does not have to be done). Also works well for making magnet photos or small refrigerator art work by adding a magnet to back after it has cooled. We do use these with the Scotch laminating machine and the results are smooth the first time through. If you found this review to be helpful please mark YES.

I have been laminating things with scotch tape since I was in my teens. I finally got a lamination machine, and these laminating pouches are just the thing I needed. I just laminated all the pictures of my grandkids because they were getting beat up in my purse. I also laminated some medical cards too. Now I'm looking for things to laminate !

Good product, I use these with the Scotch Thermal laminator and they work great. I use them to laminate CPR cards for my clients and they are absolutely happy to receive protected cards. I also use them for my personal certificate cards and carry them in my wallet all the time and they have not come apart like other laminated cards i have used before. I completely recommend them for normal everyday use.

Wonderful surprise gift for that fanciful, gifted, crafty husband who has "everything" and always suggest laminating everything. Here it is! The laminator! Now he says he doesn't remember ever needing one of these things, which is funny because every chance he gets he says, "We oughta have a laminator for things like this!" So, I get him one for Christmas (because of the Amazon daily deal) and he acts all surprised and bewildered. I'm sure it'll all be put to good use throughout the coming years. If for nothing else than our wills and powers of attorney.

I was skeptical about these little guys, not fully knowing if a business card would actually fit and then, have enough room left over to seal the package. The answer is YES, yes it does... however, the card must be placed precisely in the middle of the plastic pouch, pushed tightly against the seam. The pouch (seam side first) goes into laminator otherwise, you'll have a mess on your hands. I heard that the Fellows brand is at a better price.... but don't know how well they work. For now, I know these little puppies do an excellent job and I'm happy with them.

I love the availability of multiple sizes of laminating pouches for use with the thermal laminator. It's economical when you can buy these large quantities, and convenient-no more trips to the office supply for laminating, and making classroom supplies one time that can be used for a looong time is definitely a time saver!
