Make lamination simple. Protect and preserve your most valuable documents with easy to use laminating machines and pouches.
Welcome to GBC!
Easily preserve precious photos, important business documents or a menu for the grand opening of your new restaurant with a pouch laminator. These compact, yet powerful machines create a long-lasting seal, which protects your documents from spills, rips and sticky fingers. Loaded with tons of user-friendly features, our pouch laminators will help you become a laminating pro.
Here’s how it works:
Place your document inside a laminating pouch, which is sealed on one end. The loaded pouch is inserted into the laminator with the sealed edge first. The laminator uses a combination of heat and pressure to seal the pouch edges together, creating your completed document.
Although they’re small, pouch laminators will keep up with all of your projects and are used by a wide range of consumers. They are great for home users who want to protect their children’s artwork, family recipe cards and homemade calendars. Offices, hospitals and print centers may use a pouch laminator for sell sheets, mission statements and references materials.
Consider your needs before choosing your laminator. Warm-up times can be as fast as 1-minute, allowing you to get started on projects right away. Some laminators only handle pouches with specific mil thickness, which determines the final rigidity of your completed document. With varying processing speeds and laminating widths, there are a lot of machines to choose from. Take a look at our options below to find the perfect laminator for your space and needs.
You’d be surprised how much you can laminate around the house. Whether used for arts and crafts or for protecting your childhood photos, the Inspire Plus series is the perfect fit for home users.
Available in both 9" and 12" laminating widths, these compact and stylish machines have plenty of user-friendly features, including jam release levers and auto shut off. Designed with simplicity in mind, they feature a single power lamination setting, which helps take the guess work out of laminating.
While you may not laminate every document in your office, it’s nice to have the option when you need it. If you’re an occasional laminator, the Fusion 1000 series is the best choice for you. These machines are designed for home or small office environments with a low volume of laminating jobs.
Laminate pouches up to 5 mil thick to create protected documents with limited flexibility. The machines have a jam release lever to quickly fix misfires and a cold-lamination setting if you want to use pressure-sensitive pouches. Even if you laminate only a few times a month, these easy-to-use and intuitive machines will let you pick up right where you left off.
