First things first

  1. Contact the Circulation deskto set up an appointment. We accept walk-ins, but you will have to wait for at least 20 minutes until the laminator is warm.
  2. At the Circulation desk, tell them your name and appointment time, and someone will come assist you.

How to Laminate:

  1. Press Start Button.
  2. Allow a couple of inches of film to feed through the machine.
  3. Place your document on the bed of the laminator, on the inside of the black slider bar.
  4. Move your document forward until its edge presses against the top roll of film. The machine will automatically pull your project through.
  5. Press Stop/Reverse Button after document has been fully laminated and cleared by at least a couple of inches.
  6. On the back of the laminator (the long side with no buttons), use the blue hand held cutter to glide/ cut film, pressing the edge against the bottom metal backing as a guide. There will be extra film before and after the laminated piece.

Important Notes:

  • Look at the back of the unit (the long side with no buttons) to make sure the laminated document does not curl around and feed back inside the machine.  Very long documents could jam the machine.
  • Keep work within the range of the black slider bar to ensure that your entire project is laminated.
  • Leave space between multiple documents to prevent them from overlapping as they are fed through the laminator.
  • Make sure the project you want to laminate is no more than 26" on its short side.
