GBC� SelfSeal Laminating Sheets, 9 x 12, Pack Of 50
These sheets do not laminate anything. They stick to one side of a paper, tag, sheet ONLY. The back will still be exposed to wear, dirt, water, unless you use TWO sheets, which makes it much more costly to use. NO WHERE on the box does it explain how to use the sheets or have directions on how to use them. 5 pictures, no written instructions. NOT worth spending money on.

seriously? the product says 9x12 inches "Letter size". Then go to the pictures of how to use it and it shows essentially one laminator pocket for a letter size item. HOWEVER that is not the case. It IS a letter size laminator PAGE, NOT a pocket - it only covers ONE side of your letter sized item. You will need two of the PAGES to laminate front/back of a letter sized item. Oh and if you need to laminate a letter sized item, good luck with lining up the two laminating pages without it curling on you, static cling, or trying to reposition your item - NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! This wasn't helpful in my project at all. Took me twice as long at twice the cost. The packaging is most definitely misleading.
This doesn't even take into account the lack of instruction. I came to the website to get instructions on how to use a laminate 'pocket', really? These things are quite simple to use when the consumer is given correct, commonly understood language/information. This product did NOT do it..TOTALLY missed the mark.
Then when I read the other comments I realized it wasn't just me.
Would have been more cost efficient for me to take my items somewhere and had someone laminate them for me. Look for a different product or just have someone do the laminating for you.

Poor quality product
The instructions on the package are less than desirable, too much static electricity when you peel back the cover sheet that it grabs what you want to laminate and there is no way to reposition it so you have to start all over. This should be dropped from the product line since you make on that is supposed to be repositionable, although I doubt that I will try it due to the quality of this product. I was disappointed to see nothing stated about having to use two sheets for on project it would have been nice to see that stated in a set of written instructions instead of the hyroglyphics use on the package.

Product is difficult to use.
I have been using cold lamination sheets for years and this product is very difficult to use. Because it curls up when removed from the package, it is difficult to position a back side sheet.
It is also not as clear as previous products...it has a kind of hazy look when covering colored paper or intense color graphics.
It does the job but it frustrating getting it done and results are not great.
