An ID laminator can be an extremely useful tool to have in your home or at your office. Laminating documents provides an extra layer of protection for them, allowing the item to remain safe for longer. When purchasing a print@home ID card kit, an ID laminator will be part of the package. This laminator can be used on your ID cards to provide them with a professional PVC ID card quality.
Easy to Use
The ID laminator is extremely easy to use. You will simply plug it in and wait for it to warm up. The warming up process will take about 3 minutes. Once the ID laminator is warmed it can be used continuously for up to 2 hours.
To use the laminator you will first put your ID cards in one of the butterfly pouches that was provided in the at home ID printer kit. Once the badge is in the butterfly pouch you will feed it through the ID laminator. The lamination will seal around the badge, providing you with a secure, weatherproof, durable ID for your daily use.
What Can be Laminated?
The ID laminator will support ID cards that are up to 4.5 inches wide and up to 32 mm thick. This is a standard size for most ID badges that are printed. In addition to laminating ID badges, the ID laminator can also be used to laminate your photos. This will protect your photos from wear and tear.
When purchasing an at home ID kit you will receive Teslin, Artisyn, or Arcadia paper to print your ID badges on. Each of these synthetic papers will provide you with a high quality, durable, waterproof badge. Once you have printed the ID using your standard laser or inkjet printer, you will then place it inside the butterfly pouches that have been provided.
To laminate your badge you will take place it through the ID laminator that also comes with the kit. The entire process will not take long and in no time at all you will have a high quality ID badge available that will last you a very long time.
Some people wonder why they need to laminate the plastic badges that they print from home on synthetic paper. The main reason that you should consider lamination is for an added layer of protection. While Teslin, Artisyn, and Arcadia paper are all extremely durable, the lamination will adhere to the paper to make it even stronger and more durable.
When using a card on a regular basis it can become worn down quite quickly. This means that you will have to print out new cards more often. Using lamination can extend the life of the card by a great deal, which is why most of the home ID card making kits includes a laminator.
The ID laminator is extremely fast and easy to use and should be considered for your entire home ID making needs.
