Postby JHJC » Sat Dec 20, 2008 8:40 pm

Hi Chief KS
saw somewhere that you mentioned a laminating that cost abt $30. Head down to popular today and tot i could get something close... the price starts from $89 i think. Do you know where i could get good deals? if yes , how do i chose a machine :?: I am using it mainly for Flashcards or cards for my boys to play.
Thanks. :D

The one I saw was in Giant during one of their promotions some months back... I don't think they have it anymore. I thought I saw some cheap ones in Carrefour too.

I recently bought a lamin. mach from Popular. The brand is call PEACH. I paid for 99bucks nett. Their pouches are quite affordable. I have just laminated flash cards and certs. So far so good :)

Laminating Machine

Postby buds » Sat Apr 11, 2009 2:11 am

I bought the Aurora on sale at Carrefour and has worked fine
for a few years now. My usage a bulk of it is for certificates,
photographs and also self-made teaching materials for the
kiddies and also for work.

About S$60+ for the A4 laminating machine. During the Popular
Sale at Singapore Expo, saw the A3 version at like only S$80+!
But different brand. Think it was Peach. Saw someone carrying
it in the (payment) queue...!

Missed it, man!
That was one good deal.

Yeap that's definitely a good deal! I was hoping it comes with a pack of free pouches when I bought mine but too bad... no promo at that time ... When I was laminating, it actually stinks the whole room and my partner told me to stop! said it's unhealthy... I was so excited and enjoyed the process... Felt like I was running a lamin shop, haha... Very please with the quality so far... except the smell...

Ya, except the smell.
Other than that it does the job fine.

Aurora's laminating
sheets are also
cheaper than most.
