Crenova Laminator Review for Crafters

UPDATE:

It’s been 4 years since this review and new tools are available. I just ordered the Gina K Fuse Foiling System. If you’d like to see how it compares to the Crenova Laminator that I’ve been using the last 4 years, check out this video.

Hi. Today I’m doing something a little different.  I was contacted by an Amazon vendor and asked to try out one of their products in return for doing a review on Amazon. Since you may be interested in it, I decided to do an unboxing and review here and over on my YouTube Channel.  So here is my Crenova Laminator Review for CRAFTERS!

Be sure to check out the video.

Product:  Crenova 13 Inches Laminator A3 with Paper Cutter

What did I think?

I like the laminating machine and feel that it performs as described. I can’t say whether it is comparable to other laminators in the same price range, but I have a feeling that it is.

A few of the pluses:

  1. The size of pages that can be run through the machine… which means I could make larger Traveler’s Notebooks with this machine
  2. The short heat-up time 
  3. The ready light.

I know the ready light shouldn’t be such a big deal, but I can’t tell you how many times I messed up a project (or thought I did) because I tried to use my laminator too soon.

I rarely read the manual that comes with a new “toy” because a lot of times usage is just common sense.  Until I can’t figure something out. I never realized that it could take 4 minutes or my Scotch laminator to heat up. DOH!

Overall, I’m happy with this laminator and am glad to have it as an addition to my crafty space.

  1. WOW! This laminator worked great, and it’s so quick and easy to create with it. I was working on making dividers for one of my organization projects, and made a BUNCH of laminated book marks at the same time. The wide slot makes it so quick to use.
