Final thoughts

The Qfun 13-Inch Thermal Laminator Machine is a lightweight, compact machine that I can take with me on the go or leave on the desk in my home office. It laminates very easily and its operation is quiet. I was able to laminate several documents via heat with no problem. I was not able to test the cold lamination but when I do I will post an update.  For me, this is a nice device. Well done.

    I did not receive user manual with my laminator which is the SL88 model Qfun laminator. Would you please send me an email copy of the manual? Thank you.
