Scotch is a well-known brand that sells products for home and office use, including many types of adhesive tapes, glues, office supplies and paper products. Scotch's self-laminating sheets are designed to help people easily create permanently laminated items, without the need for a laminating machine. These laminating sheets are available in several sizes, so you will most likely find one that is the appropriate size for your project.

Things You'll Need

  • Scotch self-laminating sheet
  • Ruler

Select a self-laminating sheet that is the appropriate size for your project. Lay the sheet on your work surface.

Open the top protector sheet of the laminating pouch. Then, center your document on top of the transparent sheet underneath. Use the crop marks to help you align your item properly.

Remove the gold liner strip that is found in the center of the laminating sheet, to reveal the sticky adhesive beneath. Then, fold the top sheet over the bottom sheet, making sure the item you are laminating does not shift positions.

Press closed the adhesive-covered seam that was revealed after peeling away the gold strip. This will lock your document into place.

Turn the document over, and open the back section of the self laminating pouch. Find the white liners that surround the three open edges of the pouch. Carefully peel the white strips away, while simultaneously pressing the top and bottom layers of the laminating sheets together with your ruler. Press the ruler down firmly as you do this, in order to remove any air bubbles.
