**Disclaimer: Although I was given the AMAZING Fellowes Saturn 2 95 Laminator for review purposes, and a paid post, my opinion (& HUGE smile) are all my own.**
As a teacher, the one thing that I ALWAYS wanted was my very own laminator. I would think how great it would be to be able to personally laminate all those name tags, board tags, cubby tags, board magnets, calendar pieces…. I could really go on for days with the things I could do with a personal laminator!
It finally came. The Fellowes Saturn 2 95 Laminator was in my possession and at my disposal for all of those great “Back to School” (and everything in between) projects that I was so looking forward to!
I was expecting to see this 100 page instructional manual on how to use the Fellowes Saturn 2 95. Nope. I learned the proper procedure in about a paragraph. SO EASY! Then I figured that I would have to work when my husband is at work because laminators are notoriously noisy. Not this little “bad boy”…quieter than a mouse…I wasn’t even sure it was working it was so quiet!
It can be used for cold lamination with self-adhesive pouches and for thermal lamination. It takes about 5 minutes to warm up, and it signals with a green light and a beep when it’s ready. Did I mention, the heat is trapped inside the machine, so it’s not uncomfortable to touch, and it won’t burn you if you need to move the unit when on?
What did I start laminating first? Why the new school year calendar of course! I mean, I need to know when we have days off, right?
I also laminated blank name tags that I can write on using a dry erase marker. They are great with magnets on the back to stick to your classroom white board or refrigerator. Then I laminated a picture of my kids so that I could write their information on the back. I will put velcro on the back and stick it in their backpacks for emergencies.
I could honestly go on and on and on about projects that could be laminated….
