Fellowes laminators are extremely reliable and user-friendly, and the company has won awards for its innovation. There is a Fellowes model to suit every home or business.
Fellowes laminators are categorized according to how often they are used, and the thickness of the laminating pouch they accept, as well as their innovative features. Some are built for daily use, and some for occasional use. Read the product descriptions carefully.
Fellowes offer A4 and A3 laminators. The wider ones give more flexibility to laminate different sizes of documents. Fellowes laminators are suitable for pouches between 80 and 250 microns in thickness, and again, the thicker the pouches accepted, the more versatile the machine.

Five tips for using your Fellowes laminator
- Always use the correct pouch setting for your selected pouch
- Don’t laminate an empty pouch
- Do a trial run before using a valuable document
- Experiment with different thicknesses and pouch finishes for best results
- Trim laminated documents after lamination, not before.
Documents that might require lamination include ID cards, display cards, public announcements and documents placed in kitchens or bathrooms. Laminators have been used to seal historical documents in plastic to protect them from ageing.
