The best laminator machines can help you preserve delicate documents and photos, create worksheets for classes or help you make signage and more for your business. When you laminate something you also keep it clean and crease-free, and if you do spill something on it, you can easily wipe it without damaging what's inside.

To create this list of the best laminators (including the best table top laminators), I have examined factors such as ease of use, price, features, speed and size. Some of these laminators I've tested personally, putting them through their paces with a variety of business, home and arty projects. Where I haven't tested the laminators myself, I've trawled user reviews to find the common pros and pain points of each machine. Below is my definitive best laminator list.
