GBC� SelfSeal Laminating Sheets, 9 x 12, Pack Of 50
Misleading & Disappointing
Box says laminating "sheets", it should say "sheet", (singular), or "single sided laminating sheets". Pic on box shows what is clearly a 2 sided laminated page, but the product is anything but. Figured we were doing something wrong... until we checked the website and found we weren't alone. We usually use the main competitor's product, but we go through a ton of it, so we thought we'd try this one as it was a bit cheaper...... live and learn.

Very disappointed and a waste of money
I was very disappointed with this product. I was under the impression I was buying a product that would laminate both sides of my items. I ended up using two sheets for each thing I needed to laminate so I really was only able to laminate 25 sheets. There were no directions in or on the box other than the horrible pictures. These pictures only added to the impression that I was buying a double sided laminating sheet.

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.
