    Choosing a laminator

    I intend purchasing an office laminator but am not sure what to go for. I've seen some for R400 and others for R2000 and I cant tel the difference. Any suggestions or advise would be appreciated

    Hi Abdi. Usually the laminators that are more expensive are able to laminate pages larger than A4. If you will be doing large pages, it is worth your while to go for the bigger one. If, however, you will be using it for notices or ID size laminations, then you should be able to get a good laminator for about R800 - R1000

    I would be careful about buying too cheap, as you may find that it cannot deal with the volumes that you might need for office use.

    The more heated rollers the better it should be. Just make sure the supplier is local as things do go wrong. Features I would look for, reverse switch, temperature control, speed control.
