How to Laminate with an Iron How to Laminate with an Iron
Knowing how to laminate with an iron will allow you to protect documents without the expense of having to go to the print shop.
Step 1 – Preheat Iron
In order to laminate correctly, you will need the right kind of heat. Make sure the iron is set to either cotton blend setting, or a medium setting. Make sure the steam function of the iron has been turned off, because you will need dry heat.
Step 2 – Prepare to Laminate
Before ironing anything, put the document you want to protect in the right size laminate pouch. You should have a little extra space around the document in order to protect the edges.
Step 3 – Cover and Iron
Cover the laminate pouch with a cotton sheet and place on the ironing board. Place the iron on top of the sheet, moving it back and forth. After 30 seconds, flip the pouch over and do the other side. Examine the laminate in order to make sure it is completely sealed. If not, iron it a little more.
