purple cows laminator--easy setup...simple instructions...even I can do it with lack of sleep. I was doing recipe cards so I bought specifically the 4x6 format. Looks frosted but once you figure out that one end is sealed...lay in your cardstock between the 2 pieces of plastic like a sandwich. put the sealed end into the machine...let the rollers take it.
Learning...let the rollers push it out the other side or it will not be fully laminated
do not try and feed the next one till the first one is fully out...duh!
there is a smell of cooking plastic...though the end product is not too hot
