I've had a laminator on my wishlist at work since day one. Today Santa came early and I was told to start doing research on which one we should get. I know nothing about these.
If one of you fine gents or ladies would spend some time explaining the things I should be looking for that would be hawt!
I have an SP540-V so we'll need a 54"+ lam. I don't know if we need heat assist or not, what's the difference? Brands? Suggestions? What do you have and why do you like it? Obviously I won't be able to afford a bagillion dollar laminator however I am trying to keep in the range from $.01 to $7,000ish.
I have worked in signage for 20 years and in my experience heat assist laminators aren't nessicary for that type of work but if you are doing really high quality indoor work that is going to be viewed really close up then you will need the heat, unless your doing that, i wouldnt bother with the heat assist i dont think it's worth the extra cost.
I use a SEAL laminator which has a similar design to the RS.
So far, we are happy with it. Here's a LINK
I also saw USTECH Laminators at SGIA this last week.
They looked OK, but I don't have any experience or feedback from users.
They are located in Orlando and seem to have knowlegable staff to assist.
Their pricing is really low.
