What kind of laminator do you have?

I'm feeling the blog-pressure to get a personal laminator!

Doing the currently on a Mac is pretty similar! I save the image, and then I open it in Pages [the Mac version of Word]. I add text boxes over it with my answers, then I take a screen shot [command/shift/4] & save. Just in case anyone came here & has a Mac. =)

Can you believe we are already back?!! The laminator from Harbor Freight is a great deal. I know several people who have had theirs for a while.
