I am looking for a fairly inexpensive laminator for our school and don't know where to start. 


Got any ones that you absolutely love?

I love my Purple Cow.  I've had it for several years, not heavy use, but it works very nicely.

I got mine at Walmart a couple years ago. I haven't used it heavily really, but it was inexpensive and does a good job, and the sheets are easy to buy and not too expensive. I'll try to check the brand later and edit.

ETA: it's a Scotch TL901. Really easy to use and has two settings-one for 3mm and one for 5+mm. I like it a lot, it does the job and I haven't had any issues or complaints.

Not duck brand. Piece of poo. I have a scotch brand now but haven't used it yet.

Thank you all for the advice and input.  I went with the scotch from Amazon.  Seemed like a good deal and I had $10 from doing swagbucks so win-win there.  Now to just find some pouches and I will be set.

I got a ton of them, I think on ebay but it may have been amazon. They have worked really well and were very inexpensive.

I have only used scotch brand pouches in my scotch laminator. I'm not sure how others would work in it, but I'm guessing they would all be fine. Just don't take my word for it since I haven't actually tried other brands in it :)
