That depends on the model and the condition of the machine. Older models should not take more than 10 minutes, but newer models may take as much as 20 minutes to reach full operating temperature.

  • Once your laminator is heated, you'll need to unplug it before inserting your document into the slot at an angle
  • The document should not go in all the way - there should be a few inches of paper sticking out of one end for feeding through later

How do I know when my laminator is ready?

It is important to know when your laminator is ready for use. The best way to do this is by looking at the lights on the unit. When you turn it on, it should be lit up with a green light that will switch to an orange or red one once heated up and ready for use. If there are no lights, then the machine has not been turned on yet and cannot be used.

If you're trying to figure out if it's time to replace your laminator or not, there are two main signs. The first sign is that the machine takes a long time to heat up and it doesn't seem as powerful as before. The second sign of needing a new laminator is when you notice more air bubbles in your laminated product than normal or when you start noticing scratches on the finished product.

  1. Check the temperature gauge to make sure it reads at least 190 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Make sure your laminator is plugged in and turned on
  3. Test a small piece of paper by placing it inside the laminator, making sure that it has enough time to feed through before removing
  4. If your test piece turns out well, you can start loading up your larger pieces of paper!
  5. Some laminate materials need more time than others - always read instructions carefully for best results!
