I can’t even begin to describe how excited I was to review Fellowes Saturn2 95 laminator this month! When I taught public school I loved nothing more than to spend the hour before school in the resource room with the laminator. If it could be laminated, I sent it through the laminator. I made decorations for my classroom, name tags for my kids, labels for the shelves and desks, games, and books.
Now, as a homeschooling mom with a formal living room turned dedicated schoolroom I have missed the fun and practicality of laminating decorations, school supplies, labels, and game pieces. I’ve needed to buy new numbers for our calendar each school year because the pieces can’t take the abuse of daily calendar activities. Cardstock game pieces had to be reprinted before I could reuse curriculum another year for another child. Laminating just makes everything durable and professional looking!
Having only used a huge (old) school laminator before, I had no idea that home laminating could be so easy and convenient. The Saturn2 95 laminator has an incredibly small footprint and is easily stored on a shelf in my schoolroom. It heats up quickly and is capable of laminating documents up to 9.5 inches wide in 3- and 5-mil pouches.
The Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator is very easy to use, with clearly labeled buttons so I won’t have to pull out the user manual each time I want to laminate something. I am also impressed by the selection of laminating pouches available. I laminated my daughter’s Latin flashcards using photo size pouches, and love that there was no cutting needed after laminating. I plan to get some pouches in business card size for other flash cards.
I knew I would love having a laminator for school supplies, but I am finding it to be wonderful for general home organization as well. I can use the small pouches for labels in the playroom- in fact, using Velcro to stick the labels on shelves and bins means that I can easily reorganize any time I need to. I also laminated a weekly menu chart that I posted on the refrigerator- each week I can fill it out with transparency marker, then erase and do it again the next week. A chore chart for the kids is next on the list!
I am definitely a fan of Fellowes’ Saturn2 95, and I bet you will be too! Why not try to win one…
