I use the Xyron 500 mostly for attaching labels on boxes. It works great. I print the labels from the computer and use a paper trimmer to cut them to less than 5 inches wide. I just have to be sure that I feed the paper in straight, like any of these laminating type machines. I have labels that look great and stay on the boxes well. I just wish these machines were more environmentally friendly, waste-wise. I have not used it for items thicker than paper.
I think it is terrific for the price! I use it for all my scrap booking. It is very portable and easy to carry around. I would recommend this to anyone who does scrap booking or for sizing pictures. I wouldn't be without it!
I do mini books to give as gifts, and the snaps are a key feature. These are the best, but I do think they are overpriced. Wish we could get them a little less expensively. Generic versions are not quite as thin - maybe that the reason for the price difference.
