I received this product FREE from 3M to try out!!! I was so pleased at the capabilities of this product. First off, the variety of sizes are a plus. I love that it is larger than other basic laminators! I love that it heats properly and quickly. I haven't had any problems with my laminating projects. I laminate a variety of items on a regular basis. As a first grade teacher, I always create and laminate at least 2 sets of nametags for my students. I appreciate that there is a variety of sizes that I can use for my nametags. The laminator is lightweight and safe!! That a BONUS. I can easily transport it from school to home if needed. I usually leave it in my classroom so that it is easily accessible. With Mother's Day coming up, my students are excited to work on special projects that we will laminate for their moms. Prior to this, I have never used the larger pouches -- especially the letter size pouches. This will be the most useful to me for student projects as well as important papers that I need to keep. As I begin to use my materials, I am also very happy with the affordability of the materials: pouches, luggage loops, etc. Thank you for creating a dream machine!!!

I bought this laminator about two weeks ago, and the first time I used it (roughly 10 minute duration), it worked great! Heated up very fast, fed my work through quickly - I was very impressed. However, during its second use, about 2 minutes after the ready light was on, the machine suddenly turned off and hasn't worked since! I had purchased a more basic laminator in the past, and it had lasted over two years. As a teacher who uses my own money to purchase these kinds of tools, I was really counting on this upgraded machine lasting for more than two uses.

WORKS GREAT!!

By CherylK

from Denville, New Jersey

Comments about Scotch Thermal Laminator, TL1306, 4 Roller:

I volunteer to evaluate products for 3M and the company recently sent me a free sample of the Pro Thermal laminator. I have found it very easy to use and it makes a great product. I laminate photos for craft projects and small items for school. This machine makes a nice addition to my crafting area as it can be set on the back of the table and set up immediately to use. I would recommend this product.

Second laminator that stopped working

By user

from Portland, OR, United States

Comments about Scotch Thermal Laminator, TL1306, 4 Roller:

This is the second Scotch laminator we have bought for our office. The laminator worked great for a month and now will not turn on. This product was less than a month old, does not work when plugged into the wall or power strip.

Quit working after less than 2 months

By bmb4051

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Scotch Thermal Laminator, TL1306, 4 Roller:

I am a teacher and was so excited when I got this machine. I laminate cards for station activities. I have used it for less than 2 months. I was so disappointed when I plugged it in, it turned on, and within 5 minutes it shut off and won't turn back on.

Knocking noise after second use :(

By ChrisS

from Geneseo, NY, United States

Comments about Scotch Thermal Laminator, TL1306, 4 Roller:

The machine makes a loud knocking sound after the second time ever being used. Purchased for $99.98 at Sam's Club (happy birthday to me!). Was excited thinking I had a quality product. I am very disappointed.

Good Value

By shirlm

from Provo, Utah

Comments about Scotch Thermal Laminator, TL1306, 4 Roller:

I bought this machine and used it on card stock (not recommended). Worked great until the card stock ruined the roller tension. If you buy this laminator it will do a great job on regular paper. The things I laminated came out great.

I'm in Love

By Turtlekris79

from Marana, AZ, United States

Comments about Scotch Thermal Laminator, TL1306, 4 Roller:

I received this product for free for my unbiased opinion from 3M. I am in love with my laminator. I am a homeschool mom that has been needing one for years. So far I have been able to laminate my sons flash cards and my seven year old convinced me to laminate some of his coloring pages so he could have them forever. I have never used a laminator before and this one is super simple to use. I was able to laminate at least 25 pages in less then an hour. Trust me time is of the essence when you are a homeschooling mom. This laminator heats up quickly and the only suggestion I would have is to make the tray longer so when you are laminating a larger piece or if you are laminating pieces that you have cut apart won't fall out of the pouch.

Comments about Scotch Thermal Laminator, TL1306, 4 Roller:

3M-Scotch sent me a PRO Thermal Laminator to review. I really loved how quick it heated up and how cool the item I was laminating was as soon as it came out of the laminator. I also loved the recessed storage for the cord. I plan to use this laminator for my home and school projects. It is very easy and convenient to use.

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.
