Laminator for Home Use – Review of GBC Pouch Laminator CLA402

Ever since my trusty Laplink laminator broke down after more than 7 years, I have tried to find a replacement for under SGD$100 but have failed with the Toyo (broke down less than a year, and againa after repairing) and Aurora (bad result)! So when I saw it at carrefour recently this baby selling at $39.9 and comes with a free 100pc pouch, I was doubtful about the laminating quality but nevertheless give it a try though I was preparing for the worst. What a surprise as it turns out! The unit is light , small and best of all, the lamination was of very decent quality!

Here is a picture of the packaging:

What I like:

  • Cheap (SGD$39)
  • Decent quality
  • Small and light
  • Good built quality

What I don’t like:

  • Not much, if I have to pick one, it has to be the lack of adjustment on the temperature. But preset works well for novice and works reasonably well in this case.

Where to get:

This is a A4 laminator, there is a A3 equivalent (GBC Pouch Laminatinor CLA302available at around SGD$70.
