This is my first laminator purchase ever. This was a great buy at my local Costco warehouse. Came home plugged it in and was ready to use. So easy to use!!!

I laminate at least 4-6 pages every week and have gone through several laminating machines. The other machines I've purchased have been at least $100 or more, but have stopped working after only a year or less. I was skeptical about purchasing a machine that was so inexpensive compared to the others I've had, but I have been very pleased thus far. I have only had it for a short time, so we'll see how it holds up, but it works great so far. Very quiet and smooth laminating. I like that I can choose the laminating sheet thickness and the machine then warms to the appropriate temp. -I don't have to guess how warm it should be (low, med, high). It warms up quickly and lets me know when it's ready to use and it laminates quickly.

I purchased the Cosmic 95 for its ability to handle up to 5 mil stock, and ran several tests through without any trouble. Directions are simple, and operation is easy. I'd recommend this laminator for any office doing light to moderate laminating. The only issue for heavy duty use would be speed, but it's great for me.
Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we look at the Callisto 95, a 9.5-inch pouch laminator by Fellowes. The Callisto 95 is a great little pouch laminator. Inside, there are three main things. An instruction booklet and free starter pack of different size pouches and an understanding of what pouches are all about and the machine itself. It's lightweight, easy to use, and stylish. Check out our demo video and just how well it works. It can handle hot and cold lamination, up to 5mil pouches, heats up in five minutes, and laminates in one.

Five Tips for the Fellowes Callisto 95 Pouch Laminator
Fellowes has started 2012 by putting several new pouch laminators on the market. One of them is the Callisto 95, a device that’s great for laminating at home, at work, or in the classroom. This device is easy to use, but here are five tips for making operation as easy as possible:
The Callisto 95 has a 9.5-inch feed opening. This is the perfect size feed opening for documents that are letter-sized or smaller. You can also laminate legal-sized documents as long as you feed the 9.5-inch side into the machine. If this laminator’s feed opening isn’t wide enough for you, check out the Callisto 125 which has a 12.5-inch feed opening.
The Callisto 95 will work with laminating pouches that are up to 5 mil thick. You should make sure you stock up on these thinner pouches so you will always have some when you need them. This machine won’t work with mounting boards. If you try to process a mounting board, you might end up damaging the laminator.
This machine has a cold setting. You should use it when you want to laminate a photograph or something that was printed with water-based ink. To do this, you will need pressure-sensitive pouches instead of regular thermal ones. Just place your item in a pressure-sensitive pouch and run it through the machine.
The Callisto 95 has HeatGuard technology which helps trap heat inside the device. This helps keep the exterior cool to the touch. However, you should still exercise caution when laminating. Make sure you turn the device off when you’re done so it doesn’t overheat.
Finally, the Callisto 95 has a reverse mode. Make sure you use this mode if you ever experience a pouch jam. It makes removing the stuck pouch much easier.
The Fellowes Callisto 95 is a nice little pouch laminator that’s easy to use. Make sure you use the tips listed above so you can make your time with the machine even easier. Good luck and happy laminating!
