So, when working on badges, The Artist needs to laminate things. So we ordered a Purple Cows Hot and Cold Laminator (available at amazon ). It is a cute little thing which does not look businesslike in the least. Overall, I am impressed. The warm up light cuts off a little soon (letting it go a few additional minutes seems to give better results), but otherwise it has seemed rock solid. I managed to get it on sale for about $20, but compared to other laminators with reasonable reviews, it is still a bargain at full price. We will see how long it lasts, but for the occasional stuff we are doing it should be great.
