The 3-in-1 Blusmart BL01 Laminator comes in white and stands at 15.3-inches x 3.9-inches x 5.5-inches. This allows the Blusmart to handle laminating pouches from the size of a business card to the standard A4 size. The BL01 is fitted with a 2-roller system that supports both cold and hot laminating.
One feature we absolutely fell in love with about this nice 3-in-1 laminator is that it also has a rotary paper trimmer and a corner rounder. Something most other laminators did not offer. The paper wavy and zigzag trimmers also enable clients to add some flair to their products using this machine. This makes it very suitable if you handle customized cards (birthdays, weddings, etc.). Of course, these convenient options also make it ideal for schools and offices.
Similar to the other laminators in this review, the Blusmart BL01 has LED indicator lights to show on/off status as well as an LED indicator light.
The lamination output from this machine is excellent, whether you are working on a business card, a photo or an A4-sized document. The rotary cutting blade comes in different cutting patterns, that is, perforated, wave, and straight. This means you can give your laminates a straight, zig-zag or wavy edge without having to clamp up your space with additional cutting equipment or wasting your time looking for scissors. It is fitted with many other features that you may find useful such as:
The Blusmart BL01 laminator supports both thermal and cold lamination. When using thermal lamination, the plastic seals perfectly on all sides leaving no bubbles or uneven parts on the surface. Not unlike the other laminators here, just make sure you’re using the self-adhesive pouches when you’re using the cold lamination option.
Weighing only 1.98 pounds, this machine is also extremely portable and easy to use. The instructional manual is simple for anyone to grasp with all parts clearly labeled out, so don’t worry if it’s your first time using one.
Now, let’s talk about some common customer complaints…
Some consumers have complained about the machine crinkling up papers and jamming after using it a number of times. If this happens, try pushing the anti-jam (ABS) button or cleaning the glue that may be gumming up the rollers.
And, in the rare case your machine arrives broken, make sure to return the item within 4 weeks to avoid missing the deadline.
All that aside, the Blusmart BL01 is convenient to use since it accommodates all the standard laminating pouches with the maximum size being A4. It powers right up and outputs some great looking products.
