When laminating is a regular part of your business, you certainly stock up on specific pouch sizes and thicknesses you use constantly. However there are certain supplies that should be kept at the ready for unexpected projects.
Business Card Pouches
Creating durable business cards to display at a service desk may not be a weekly laminating project, but when you suddenly and unexpectedly run out, a pack of glossy pouches in the supply room will come in handy.
Trimming down letter size laminating pouches can be a hassle, and paper tags peel and tear too easily. Keep ID tag pouches in your desk drawer to create a badge for a new employee or a visitor to a secure location of your company where proper identification is required. They come pre-punched so it is easy to attach a lanyard.
Laminating Cleaning Sheets
We often forget that the laminator needs regular cleaning. Keep cleaning sheets to extend the life of your laminator and maintain quality results for your documents.
Legal Size Laminating Pouches
That odd-sized document that needs to be laminated will not work with letter size pouches. Keep legal size laminating pouches for creating in-office signage or heavily used reference sheets that need to hold up under regular handling.
Self-Adhesive Laminating Roll
For extra large documents that won’t fit in the laminator, use self-adhesive laminating roll. No laminator is required and you can quickly and easily create laminating infographics or posters that you can cut to size.
Occasionally you will need extra laminated protection for a document. Three mil is good for everyday jobs, but have a pack of 5 mil available for a more durable, thicker cover. Documents like maps and spec sheets used outdoors or in dirty conditions like a factory or construction site ideally should use 5 mil thickness.
