Disappointed

By CraftyMom

from Cleveland, OH, USA

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

I purchased this product at a office supply store. The package does not indicate that these are single sided sheets. Although the product title on the website does indicate this information, the actual packaging is devoid of any mention of this fact. The diagrams on the back of the package (the directions for use) imply that there are two sheets and you "insert" the item you want to laminate between them. Not the case at all. I was able to make the product work but felt that I was misled.

Very misleading! Nothing easy about this product!

By AngryinIL

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

I purchased this product thinking it was like the laminating pages that I had used in the past, Boy was I WRONG!!!! There is nothing easy about trying to use these laminating sheets. I was attempting to laminate some sign for a sale and they would be wrinkled, if I could even attempt to get them laminated. The pages that I had previously used were so easy!! You would peel part of the paper back, layout your item to be laminated, and then gradually peal the other paper off, and smooth as you went. Piece of cake!! I can't tell you how many signs I ruined trying to use this product!!!

The sheets require 2 per page!!! This isn't listed on the package...I purchased it for a project that requires lamination for 50 sheets -___- I really need my money back...I tried to save money but didn't complete my project. DO NOT PURCHASE!!

Terrible directions for use, requires two sheets for one piece of paper

By DisappointedLaminate

from Florida, USA

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

This product was incredibly misleading. These are single sided laminating sheets so it requires two sheets to complete a double-sided laminate job. This makes using them incredibly difficult as it is nearly impossible to actually line up two sheets correctly so all documents must be trimmed around the edges. I've wasted so many of these sheets as they have gotten caught and stuck on one another and these are not cheap. Plus the directions don't show anything that is helpful and I ended up here just trying to figure out how to use them to see if I was missing something or if I really do need two sheets to laminate a single piece of paper. I would not recommend these at all. Will definitely be buying something else next time.

Packaging is misleading

By RD12091

from NC

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

I should have read reviews before buying. I bought this product in-store. They didn't offer any other laminating product that didn't require a machine. No where on this packaging does it tell you that only one side will be laminated unless you use 2 sheets or double the one sheet over. VERY disappointed in a product from a company I thought was pretty good... especially now seeing they've had numerous complaints on this very topic and have done NOTHING about it.

Ditto what everyone else has said: misleading packaging, hard to work with, poor instructions which led me to here and all the bad reviews. Don't buy this product.

Poor Instructions

By MikeL

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

With this many bad reviews, I'm curious how many were contacted by a representative? Even their reply needs correcting. (your) I have used the laminating sheets for the machine and I have used the 'self laminating' which cover both sides....I accidently purchased these not knowing I would have to 'line up' a second sheet.

Directions don't match the picture!

By BusinessUser

from Addison, TX

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

It's rare that I feel misled/deceived by an office supply. I'm glad I tried a test document before ruining an irreplaceable project. It would have been a disaster! The image in the front shows a crisp and clear laminated document, with clear space around the edges. One would think it's pretty easy to replicate that using the product. Even the directions make the product appear to be a pouch that you place your item in. It's unfortunate that I've already opened it and probably can't return it. I'll be back to the store in the morning to find a competing product. I'm rather disappointed in an iconic brand that I always trusted.

A disappointing purchase

By KimZ

from Omaha, NE, USA

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

I was trying to laminate a sheet of paper. After looking at the "directions" on the packaging, I thought that I must have been doing something wrong. I went to the website and...I was doing nothing wrong! Silly me, I thought that if I wanted to laminate a letter sized document, this is the product I needed. You actually need TWO laminating sheets to laminate ONE document.

Waste of time and money.

By PJack

from Omaha

Comments about Swingline GBC SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouches - 50 per pack:

The instructions on the box are misleading!! In order to properly laminate, you need to use 2 sheets, not one as depicted on the box. Wish I had bought the competitors product, turns out the cost is the same. Once bitten, twice shy.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
