These do not work with "ALL thermal laminators" like the ad says. You must have a laminator rated for thicker sheets, otherwise the laminator will not get hot enough to properly seal. Even if you run it through the laminator several times, it does not seal close enough to the sheet that is being laminated.

I tried this with a scotch thermal laminator and another off brand that my wife uses in her classroom. These sheets did not work with either laminator.

I found a laminator rated for these sheets and ordered it, otherwise I would have had to return these to amazon.

I posted a photo so you can see the very large area around the piece of paper I laminated which did not get sealed.

I do LOTS of laminating. I purchased several of these and the first few I had were great! Then I ordered a few more and I don't know what happened. I would consistently get a curl after it ran through my laminator. I tried everything, different speeds, temps to no avail. I use an Akiles 6 roller laminator, it's a good one. I even went out and bought ANOTHER laminator thinking mine had seen better days. No luck. Finally I just came to the conclusion that the only thing was the laminating sheets and sure enough it was. It's a shame they were decently priced $19.95 and looks like they have raised prices. Like I said the first few I had were great, came out clear and flat, not sure if I got a bad batch or what, but these have cost me way too much time and money.

I have the cheap Scotch laminate you can get at Walmart and I was scared to order since someone reviews said this doesn't work. I set my laminate to 5mil as that's the highest it will go. It doesn't seal well on the first pass but was perfect after a second pass. For good measure, I send it through 4 times and it works like a charm. I'm ok sending it multiple passes considering I have a cheap laminator. Stunningly clear, and super thick. Awesome for crafting!!!

These are nice sturdy laminating sheets. I'm knocking off a star because the box is quite heavy but the box they come in is cheap lightweight cardboard so it was already split open when I received. The product was fine, but the box is hilariously cheap. There's no way you can store them in this box unless you take over half of the sheets out. So just be prepared for that. Otherwise an excellent product.

Such an amazing deal for 200 sheets! I am a teacher and am currently laminating all of my resources to prepare for the new school year. I have quite a lot and felt guilty about potentially bogging down the school's laminator and volunteer for too long. I am impressed by the quality of these sheets. They worked great with my Scotch laminator. Pages are easy to insert and the paper sort of "sticks" nicely to the inside of the sheet to ensure slippage does not occur. I have used other laminating sheets in the past where the paper in the sheet moved and did not laminate properly. This has not occurred with these sheets. Additionally, there is no separating occurring upon cutting the laminated pages I have done so far. I will purchase this pack again.

I bought these because at the time, they were the cheapest per pouch. I've used many different brands and the differences between them are very, very minor so I suggest you just buy what's the cheapest at the time.

I love these. They are a little larger than the page but they work great. They do really well with printer paper but don't seem to work too well with card stock. If you are cutting out shapes on cars stick you will need to cut your paper first and then run it through these sheets and then cut again. It is foggy before you put it through the laminator but come out clear. They aren't too sturdy with thin paper but it does protect your work.

Compared to other laminating pouches, these are by far my least favorite. I loved the price, but not the quality of the product once laminated. The lamination was not tight against my papers after running it through the machine. I even ran the sheets through several times, even on a hot setting. The lamination peeked from my papers after I cut them out. As a teacher, it's important to have good quality laminating pouches. These were not good quality.

These pouches are 5 mil thick - which is great for things that will et a lot of use at school. They are easy to use and I especially like when I'm laminating a number of small things in the same pocket, they stay in place - I haven't had any move yet, and I do a LOT of laminating for school (folder games, calendar numbers, etc.) I will definitely be purchasing more of these! (Actually, they make the 3mil pockets feel almost "flimsy" (before laminating)!

can't beat the price on these, over 50% off what you would buy at Staples or Office Depot Store. They separate ok and seal nicely. Have been very good quality for our company calendars I do myself. Would definitely buy again.
