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.

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

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

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.

Quit working after only two uses.

By 

from Memphis, TN, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

Really needed to laminate something and can't. So disappointed. Read online reviews before purchasing and was confident I was getting a good product. It worked for two times, laminating a total of maybe 10 pages. Put it away carefully in its box. When I tried again this evening it gave a sizzling sound and died.

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I love using the Scotch Thermal Laminator. It is very convenient and easy to use. It heats up in a few minutes and it takes less than a minute to laminate a sheet of paper. I use it for bulletin board displays in my classroom and they look beautiful!

I bought this to use in my classroom and I was very pleased with the work it did. About 5 months into school it just stopped heating. It turns on and works but never heats up. A disappointment for sure.

Worked twice and now it just ruins my photos :(

By 

from Pikeville, TN, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I have had this for a few months and have used it a couple of times with great results. Now it won't pull anything thru and mangles my photos for a project I am working on. I see there are others who are having the same issues as I am. The tray in back keeps dropping as well and is not big enough to support and 8 1/2 x 11 sheet laminating pouch.

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I originally purchase this laminator for use at home for craft type projects. I have ended up using it for my travel business. I am a travel agent and found it perfect for luggage tags & more. I look forward to using more of your products in the future.

Love it! Need Replacement Parts though

By 

from Katy, TX, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I use my laminator all the time as a kindergarten teacher! It has been great!! However, I went to use it just now and the black tray has a piece broken on it and won't hook onto the machine. I wish replacement parts were offered so that I could still use this with the tray/guides.

Disappointed

By 

from Kingsville, TX, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I know several people that have this laminator and theirs works great. Mine, not so much. The pages keep getting caught up on the left side of the machine, ruining anything I've tried to run through it. I'm planning to return it soon. I see another review with the same problem, so apparently it isn't an isolated issue.

Will return

By 

from Florida, United States

Comments about Scotch TL-901 Thermal Laminator:

I bought this product to laminate items for my tutoring business. I will be returning it. Although the end result was good, the feeder tray was not long enough to position the document without it sliding around before it was gripped by the rollers. The tray folded into the back of the machine for storage. The storage concept was good; however, the tray was flimsy and difficult to reposition. I question the longevity of the tray. Therefore, I am returning the laminator.
