Best Laminating Machine for the Classroom or Teacher

Laminating Machine for TeachersOne of the questions we are often asked is "which laminator is best for a teacher?" A laminating machine is certainly an asset to the classroom and can provide many functions, so that is a legitimate question.

Overall a laminating machine is great benefit to have in the classroom. Many schools don't offer one to their teachers, or have strict guidelines on the use of the front office's machine. But, a smaller hot pouch laminating machine can be purchased by a teacher for an affordable price and will give them many years of use.

Teachers like to laminate many things in the classroom to protect them from dirty hands and lots of use. Laminated items tend to hold up much better than an unprotected piece of paper, making them easier to carry over from year to year, rather than having to recreate items at the beginning of each school year. Flash cards, task cards, reference sheets and charts, and even classroom decorations can be laminated to keep them in good condition for years of multiple use.

Understanding the Different Types of Business Card Printing

Even in the age of online global business, people still use business cards as a leave behind when meeting with new customers and clients. Business cards offer a convenient size for filing away in a wallet or rolodex (for those that are still using these dinosaurs), to keep needed information on hand about people that they meet.

Traditionally business calling cards included phone numbers, addresses and the name of the company the person you met worked for. Now, with the internet being used so much in business, these handy calling cards also tend to include things such as email addresses, websites, and even Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn account addresses.

Some people don't have a need for a lot of business cards, so they will design and print their own business cards using perforated business card paper, with their computer and inkjet or laser printer.  While some of these papers are plain, and come in different colors, others have preprinted designs and allow you to drop in your personalized information, for a beautiful card without the cost of professional printing.

Other people have a need for business cards in bulk and rely on traditional printing to get them produced. With business card printing there are several different types of printing available.

Why Buy Refurbished Office Equipment?

Buying factory refurbished equipment is a great way to get a bargain on an otherwise expensive item. Many companies buy their equipment exclusively as refurbished. When many people think of the term "refurbished" they think of old, used, torn apart, rebuilt equipment. However, that is not generally the case at all when it comes to electronics!

Basically, an electronics item can be classified as refurbished if it meets ANY of the following criteria:

Customer Return - Most major retailers have a 30-day return policy for their products and many consumers, for whatever reason, return products within that time period. These are fully functioning items, that are the same as new, but because the box has been opened they must be sold as refurbished. Most of the time, if there is nothing wrong with the product, stores will just reduce the price and resell it as an open box special. However, if there is some sort of defect present in the product, many stores have agreements to return the product to the manufacturer were it is inspected and/or repaired, and then repackaged for sale as a refurbished item.

Shipping Damage - Many times, packages can get damaged in shipping, whether due to mishandling, the elements, or other factors. In most cases the product in the package may be perfectly fine, but the retailer has the option to return the damaged boxes (who wants to put a damaged on box on the shelf?) to the manufacturer for full credit. The manufacturer, then, is obligated to inspect the products and repackage them in new boxes for sale. However, they cannot be sold as new products, so they are relabeled as refurbished units.
