First, you need to get the size laminatingpouch that you need for your project.

And thickness, they range from 3 to 14mil.

Notall machines can handle all thicknesses.

When putting your card into the pouch, make sureyou get nice even margins.

This makes trimming at the end much easier.

You'll need to makeadjustments to the heat of the machine according to the thickness of pouch that you use.

Alwaysfeed the laminating pouch into the throat of the machine with the crease side forward.

This assures the best laminating seal.
