I am thinking about this machine. I am only making cards (right now) and am a little unsure of how it can be used?? Thanks for your suggestions.

Hi Josette,
I have a Xyron 910 and I love it! It makes stickers, laminates, magnets, laminate on one side and stickers or magnets on the back. I can't live without mine. I use it for stamping, scrapbooking, cub scouts, visuals for sunday school lessons and more. For stamping cards it is so handy if you are making multiple cards and you need to have something with adhesive on it. There are little ones for stickers too and the possibilities are endless. Good luck!

I am a XYRON addict! I have the little X shaped 150, the 500 (they came out with the lovely 510 AFTER I bit it on the 500 . . . waaah!

I also have the old 850, earned as a prize from SU!, a # of years ago . . . of course AFTER that they came out with the 900, which I want so bad I can hardly stand it! I even want the 250, which they designed for kids!!!!!

If you can only get one, and can afford it, go with the 900 for maximum versatility and size; it'll cover "most" situations--I rarely work with 12 x 12 formats, so I couldn't justify buying the 1200 . . . I would just go to Office Max for stuff that large.

Then, if you can, get either the 150 or the 250 for your punches so you don't have "waste" that you'd have when using the 900 for such tiny items?

I must confess I use mine more than I thought I would and adore it!

How's that for an endorsement????? LOLLOLLOL!


You can get Xyrons for a GREAT deal at www.wilde-ideas.com OR, if you have a 40% off coupon, try www.joann.com--or, of course, visit the store and save yourself the S & H.

HTH,

Default Xyron Machine

Has anyone had a problem with using the two-sided laminate with
their machines. I have the 900 and get wrinkles when I try to laminate
something. I've tried removing the cartridge and smoothing it out,
then putting it back in but it doesn't work. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

I make sure that the film is rolling straight before I put whatever I'm laminating in. Usually it just takes rolling a little of film out first. Look in from the back and you should be able to see if its straight or not. HTH
