Other times I wished I had a laminator involve my 12 year old, Kyle. You see, Kyle is an amazing artist. He always has been, ever since he was in preschool. He always loved drawing me pictures, often of the Titanic or some other historic monument, and while I have been able to keep most of them safe, a few have sadly become damaged. A laminator would have come in very handy to help preserve more of his earlier artwork. He's moved on top sculpting and canvas now, so not as much needs protection in the way that sketches and coloring pages would.
Now that Kyle is in middle school, one thing he enjoys doing is forming little "clubs" with his friends. Whether it be an art club or a music club, it seems he always has something going on. He recently expressed interest in making photo ID badges for all of his members. Lucky for him, I had just the product to get the job done!
The awesome folks at MyBinding.com sent me a GBC BadgeMates Badge Laminator Kit for review, so I eagerly went to work making my son's very own photo badge using one of his school portraits! Before I get into that, I would love to tell you more about MyBinding.com. They have a lot more to offer than just badge laminators, and they're true experts in their industry.
