Michael's crafts no longer carry this product. Have to order it online. I use this at our daycare center mostly for placemats. Most of the time it works, but sometimes it will wrinkle either the paper I'm laminating (if the paper is slightly rippled due to coloring it with paint) or the laminate itself will crease. The later will cause water to penetrate the enclosure and ruin the placemat. If anyone tries to crank it the wrong way (counter clockwise), it will get all out of alignment. I love it just the same as it is always ready - no heating time required, and it sticks to both sides instead of just heat sealing the edges, which can be easily taken apart. This allows me to laminate and cut things apart without it falling apart. Drawback is it only comes 9"" wide, so everything has to fit within that dimension.
