GBC Heatseal H450 13" Professional Laminator Review

Are you looking for a professional-grade pouch laminator for your office? Especially one that can handle large documents? If so, you'll want to read all about the GBC HeatSeal H450. This is a very high-quality laminator that probably has just about all the features you could ever want. Here are its many strengths, as well as a mention of its very few weaknesses.


  • The H450 has one of the widest feed openings you'll find in a laminator. It's 13 inches wide and is large enough to accommodate documents that are printed on 12" x 18" paper. Of course it can also laminate smaller items such as those that are letter- and legal-sized (8.5" x 11" and 8.5" x 14" respectively).

  • This machine has both hot and cold settings so you can laminate a wide range of items: photographs, menus, signs, anything containing water-based ink, and more. The temperature is controlled via an LCD display.

  • You can use just about any pouch you want with this device. Laminating pouches range in thickness from 1.5 to 10 mil (a mil is 1/1000th of an inch) and the H450 can handle them all. That way, you'll definitely be able to use the right pouch for whatever it is you're laminating. You can even use pressure-sensitive pouches when doing cold lamination.

  • This machine can process your documents pretty quickly. It has the ability to laminate a 19.5-inch document in one minute, so it will take even less time than that to finish off a letter-sized piece.

  • When you're not using the H450, it will automatically shut itself off. This makes for a safer working environment (no risk of fire) and it keeps the motor in good condition. It will also help you save on electric costs.

  • Pouch jams are annoying, but they do happen. If you run into one, this machine has a reverse mode you can use to get things back on track.

  • You're going to be very pleased with the results you get from this device. It has four rollers to ensure everything is laminated beautifully and is free of heat marks and bubbles.


  • Although the H450 can laminate items rather quickly, it has a very long warm-up time. You can expect it to take 8 to 10 minutes to heat up which is a really long time. (Especially if you're in a hurry.) A light will turn on when you can go ahead and use it.

  • This is one of GBC's less flashy laminators as far as looks go. It lacks the contemporary styling seen on newer models such as the GBC HeatSeal H420. However, this is a much more powerful laminator than some of the other ones, so it's definitely a trade-off.

It's evident that the weaknesses of the GBC HeatSeal H450 are far outweighed by its strengths. While the lengthy warm-up time is a letdown, overall this is a machine that will impress you. From its wide feed opening to its fast laminating time, the H450 is the professional-grade laminator you need.
