There are two different options for the laminating process –

• Hot laminating whereby the pouches are fed into a machine. This is the best one to choose when you have multiple items to laminate as they are relatively inexpensive and quick and easy to use.
• Cold laminating/self sealing pouches on the other hand are great to use if you do not have a laminating machine. You simply place the document, peel away the backing sheet and stick the two halves together.

Laminating pouches are available in matte or gloss and two thicknesses, the thicker one giving greater protection than the thinner.

Comb binding, sometimes referred to as plastic comb or spiral comb binding, is an inexpensive and easy way to bind pages together into a book and the binding machine facilitates this.

In the 1950s, binding machines using combs began to be used as a method of binding papers. The binding machine became very popular for two reasons, one due to the fact that they are very easy to use, relatively inexpensive and the combs are available in a wide range of colours and sizes and two that the binding machine is a relatively inexpensive piece of office equipment.

The comb binding machine has few significant parts. Firstly, the punch to prep the papers by punching holes along one side of the pages of a document. Secondly, a lever which opens the plastic combs and allows you to insert the punched pages. Using this lever again the comb closes around the papers and the document is ready for presentation. Some binding machines have margin control knobs or dials which allow for easier use.
