Staples and Office Depot sell 9"x12" 'laminating sheets' by the 50 sheet box. You can laminate an entire 8x11 sheet, or cut it into smaller pieces and laminate a recipe card! Whatever! I use them all the time. I 'laminated' my husband's RWT retirement card. He wanted it preserved for his wallet!
I especially use them to laminate charts and 'keys' that I use a lot.
Yeah, the painter's tape would be perfect to use on a laminated chart!
This pack of 50 'self seal' laminating sheets was not expensive, about $24. That's about 48 cents per sheet. It beats the fee for regular hot laminating at a print counter! Plus, it's convenient.
Here are some of the spare half sheets I use for little stuff:
My first box/packet was AVERY brand. This new packet is GBC. It all works the same. It's good thing to have around!
OFFICE DEPOT: Avery & GBC brands for sale!
