How do I get something out of that the laminator ate?


You can't do any more laminating until you do. Some laminators have to be used with a document carrier and some don't. It sounds like yours does need one. This happened to me once. You have to remove the screws on the bottom, lift off the top and you will find your document and laminate pouch wrapped around the roller. Using a sharp paring knife or nail scissors, cut the pouch along one side making sure not to damage the ceramic roller. I have a recollection that I cut the pouch away on both sides. I used a chef's boning knife as this was at work in an airport business class lounge.

What is a laminator?


A laminator is a tool used to plastic coat documents to protect them. Your social security card may have a laminate coating.

Some one at work tried to laminate a card. when it did not come out she put in another sleeve thinking it would push the other out. smart uh! how do we get the 2 pages out?


If you were using GBC brand laminating pouches they don't need a carrier, if you were using another brand of laminating pouches, then a carrier is needed (something they don't clearly specify) and that's why the laminating pouch got stuck.
If you have had the laminator under a year, it should be under warranty, and you can call the company, and they will send a replacement, and they will probably then inform you of the above listed laminating pouch issue.
You may also want to try using the reverse button, but many times the pouches will get stuck between several rollers, and you risk destruction of the entire machine by attempting to take them out manually.

Guess I'm not too bright. Have a pack of GBC SelfsSeal Laminating Sheets, 9 x 12. Instructions say "Center item face sown on the clear non-adhesive." "Peel away the liner and...


It's not you, it's the instructions. They are just wrong and will not work as directed. However, I have found a way to use these sheets that works for me, but it is still not particulary easy.

Step 1) Lay the 1st sheet on a flat surface, adhesive side up. Pressing down on the small 1/2" strip of backing, peel away the large backing sheet exposing the adhesive. Holding the sheet you want to laminate face down and at an angle to the work surface, carefully align the material by "bumping" it up against the edge of the 1/2 strip. Once aligned, carefully and gradually lay the item onto the adhesive. Like I said, not particularly easy, but if you are careful, it will work.

Step 2) If you want to double laminate, which I usually do, the second laminate sheet seems easier to me. Leave the Step 1 laying flat on the work surface. Take a second lamination sheet and again, hold it down on a flat surface and peel away the large backing sheet, leaving the small 1/2" backing attached. Take this 2nd sheet and holding it over the 1st, face down and angled up from the work surface, align the 1/2" strips of both sheets together and again carefully lay the 2nd sheet over the first single-laminated item. The two 1/2" strips don't stick to one another allowing a bit more flexibility for alignment.

Press all of this together and work out any bubbles or wrinkles. Once that is done, pry the two sheets apart at the very edge to remove the two 1/2 strips.

Unless you are incredibly lucky the edges will never align 100%. I use a paper-cutter to trim off any irregularities after I finish laminating.

The sheet im laminating rolled up inside, cannot get it out


Water-based cleaners will not work with this type of adhesive. Rubbing alcohol or a citrus-based cleaner (eg, Goo-Gone) will be required.

You need to put your document in a carrier to prevent the heat from buckling the pouch before it makes it into the rollers. I've had a similar problem in the past before I remembered to use the carrier.
