January 29, 2020

The hassle of sorting through page after page of laminating machines as you're shopping can be tedious, time consuming, and hard on your eyes and back. Let's be honest... there are hundreds of possibilities, and no clear cut guide telling you exactly which machine to buy. This is because the needs of every school may vary by their size, their intended use, and even their grade levels.

What we've done is compile a list of just the top 4 school laminators on the market, and highlighted only the truly key and noteworthy features for your comparison. That way you can ignore all of the confusing specifications that don't apply to you, and just get down to the point.

Most Popular School Laminators:

Model Most Note-Worthy Feature
GBC Foton 30 Automatic Laminating
Though not a traditional roll laminator, the Foton 30 is a unique pouch-free
laminating machine that offers automated laminating, an unheard
of feature that is found in no other machine. It uses cartridges of film and, once set,
lets you set a stack of pages to laminate in the feed tray and walk away while the
machine does the rest. Not only does that make this an easy machine, it also makes
it incredibly fast, and the low price point makes it attainable for schools of all sizes.
MiniKote 27 Fast Laminating
A quick 9.5 feet per minute speed makes the MiniKote a great machine for those
short on time.
TSL-2700 Budget-Friendly Price
One of our lowest priced school roll laminators, this unit is a great fit for the especially
cost conscious educators, without sacrificing quality.
Phoenix 2700DH Multi-Size Core Compatible
The Phoenix works with either a 1" or 2.25" core, which expands the possibilities of
film that you can use.
