Question Laminator question

Hi, Ladies! I'm really wanting to try foiling but I can't decide on which laminator to buy. Do any of you prefer the Sovereign over the Heide Swapp Minc? Thanks!

I prefer the 3M one, which you can get for about $20 at Walmart.

I've been using a basic laminator, which cost me around the same as Linda E's. You can get them for about the same price on Amazon. An advantage of buying a basic A4 laminator is that you can make your own stamp storage sheets too,

I use a inexpensive less than $20 machine to foil with and have great results.

I have the Minc. I love the thing. From what I've read it has better rollers than the cheaper ones, for more even pressure and better results. Tuesday Morning has had the mini Minc for about $30, also the foils for $3.99.

Thank you everyone! I live in northern Canada and it's a bit harder to get stuff here. I may try Amazon.

If you are going with a laminator, Amazon is good. Or do you have a Staples near you/in Canada?
