I received this complimentary Laminator to try in exchange for my honest review - all opinions are my own. The warm up time on this laminator was a bit longer that I expected, but good things come to those who wait. Once the unit warmed up the process was effortless and perfect. The instructions that come with the unit are very clear and easy to follow and there are not a lot of instructions to read through. The unit is small enough to leave out on a desk top and performs well. My 11 year old was able to follow the instructions and get the results need for laminating sheets for he r recipe collection. There were no air bubbles in the laminated sheet and the unit sealed the sheets completely the very first time eliminating the need to redo . The magazine sheets have been wiped down with damp cloth several times now due to food spills while she's cooking and they have satyed intact even along the edges.

I bought this about two months ago at Walmart and am very disappointed. I have owned 3-4 Scotch laminators over my 26 years in teaching and this is the ONLY one I've been disappointed in. The tray is simply too short to support the 81/2 X11 sheet of laminating film and any smaller pictures that you put in it slide around and end up overlapping! I don't need to waste my time rearranging pictures like this. Also the tray keeps falling off the darn machine. I laminate many 2 inch pictures for use in my classroom and this particular model is a nightmare! Please go back to the laminator you had a few years ago where the trays folded up on either side but laid completely flat going in and out of the machine.

I bought 2 of these. One for home and one for work. Used one of them a few times and used the other once. Neither will even turn on now. Terribly disappointed.

It WAS a nice laminator

By 

from Virginia, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

We have had this a little over a year and it has worked fine. Don't use it much. BUT today it slowed way down and then all three lights on the left started blinking...won't shut off. We had to unplug it. We let it cool down...now when we plug it in it does not heat and all three lights at left blink....not heating at all but will feed a piece of paper slowly. Disappoinmted that there are no instructions in the manual that covers this problem

By

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

This is the 2nd day i have had the laminator and the machine stopped working. It is not rolling the paper through. Blue light is on and I put the paper in the tray and it is not rolling in. I have used it twice but now it is not rolling.

Terrible product!

By 

from Titonka, IA, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I purchased this about 6 months ago and just took it out of the box last week. We used it twice to laminate 4 different things and it doesn't work anymore! What a total waste of money! Too bad it doesn't last any longer than that for what I paid for it! I am really disgusted!!

Great laminator

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

Bought this a few days ago and finally used it today. The laminator is very easy to use and works great. The problem I'm having is that I can't figure out how to fold up the tray. I'd like to store it in the box, but can't do it because the tray won't fold up.

Scotch Laminator

By 

from Texas, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I recently received this as a gift and was so excited! I had great results to start out with but now all of the things I laminate are coming out slightly wavy. I have tried heavier printer paper and that hasn't helped. Cardstock goes through perfectly, but regular paper has trouble. Are the laminating pouches supposed to be a certain thickness? What is the cause of this problem?

Worked well about 50 times

By 

from Minneapolis, MN, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

It did an excellent job through the first pack of laminating of laminating pouches. I started in on my second set and the rollers quit rolling correctly and it started 'eatting' the paper. I would turn it off and let it cool then start over and it didnt work. Tried a different heat setting and it still did not roll correctly.

Not what I expected

By 

from New Mexico, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

Our office has had this machine for sometime now and have used it for I'm going to say a minimum of 10 times. Its jammed 4 out of the 10 times and now it wont switch on. With a 30 day warranty does not cut it either. Please look before you buy!

Worked great 4 times...and then it didn't

By 

from Springfield, VA, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I have used this to successfully laminate 4 items and was pleased with the outcomes from those. And then, just tonight I go to use it and it acts like normal while heating up, it catches and threads through like usual, but then problems start. After entering the machine it fails to re-emerge and seems to have wrapped around inside the machine. The release mechanism failed to get the item to release and it is still jammed in there. It ruined my project, but it also failed horribly. If you only need this to work for 4 items, then this is an expensive but effective purchase, but if you want to use it more then just 4 times it might be best to look elsewhere.

The thermal laminator ...

By 

from Newport NH

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

The thermal laminator enhanses the colors on student artwork and keeps handouts clean in the art room. I teach grades 6-12 and have used it for many projects. You have to be careful to feed it properly on the closed side of the sheets or it will wrap around the internal rollers and will have to be taken apart to fix. I have had this laminator for 7 or 8 years and use it several times each semester. This year the heating element stopped working.

Bad!!

By 

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I bought this laminator today and can't even use it to laminate. I do one sheet and it comes out great and the second sheet comes out crooked and wrinkled. Have to give the machine at least a 15 minute break!! Horrible product!!! Very disappointed in this product!!

Laminates ok but have issue with tray...

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I bought this to laminate my daughter's artwork. It laminated just fine on the first use but I can't for the life of me figure out how to fold the tray back up. I'm so afraid I'm going to break it fiddling with it. Just shouldn't be this hard which makes me think something is wrong with it. I wish there were more details about the tray in the instructions

Easily Broken

By 

from Little Rock, AR, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I bought this product less than a year ago for my classroom, it worked great at first and warmed up quickly, however, when I went to turn it on today it would not work. I was recommended this product by another teacher and was very excited to have this as a classroom staple, but there is not much I can do with a broken laminator.

Melted

By 

from New York, NY, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

So I did love this machine (tl901). However, I just got into my classroom as a new teacher and began to laminate a few things. As I slid the laminating sheet in it never came back out. It wrapped completely around the wheel inside. It melted all over it and damaged my work and broken.

Quit working after 2 uses.

By 

from Guelph, ON, Canada

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

The first 2 times I used my laminator it worked okay! It would only work for about 15 minutes or for 2 or 3 sheets and then it would stop feeding. What I was able to get laminated was wonderful done but it was very frustrating to deal with. After 2 uses it quit working all together as it does not heat up at all anymore. Very disappointed!

By 

from Prince Frederick, MD, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I bought my laminator a little over a month ago and it worked so well and recently it will turn off in the middle of using it and now it will rarely even turn on. Is there a way I can contact customer service?

Lamination Love

By 

from Florida, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I got my Scotch laminator about two years ago, and use it all the time! I make medication cards for Hubs and I to carry our own and each others' in our wallets, plus emergency contact numbers and our doctor's name and numbers. In case of an accident, or to show at the doctor's office, they are invaluable. (Keep one on a fridge magnet, too, for EMS!) I laminate all my scrap-booked recipe cards! I worked hard to create them, so I want them protected from spills and splashes. The one pictured has instructions on the font and the back so I don't have to look up separate recipes to make that dish. I laminate instructions for things that I need to have around frequently, like a list of hurricane necessities. I laminate our car insurance card so it doesn't get crumpled in the glove compartment. Important documents, pictures, newspaper clippings (lamination keeps them from aging badly) and any paper (and sometimes fabric!) that I want protected from life's roughness gets sent through my laminator. Save your grandmother's recipes, letters from a loved one, and so much more with this incredibly useful tool! (Just don't do valuable letters from George Washington - it would destroy the value!) Laminate a small calendar, then use a wipe-off ink to mark important dates. I love that it has a handle to carry it with, as I do move it around sometimes, and I made a pretty cover for it so it won't collect dust when I'm not using it. I put it on a 3-drawer wood chest that holds my laminating supplies, and created a "Lamination Station". .

Worked one time

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

This worked great the first time I used it for about 3 sheets. Went to use it about a month later and would not feed the papers at all. Waste of money.
