Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I am unhappy with the results of foiling the toner printed sentiments and snowflake card stock I purchased from Gina k designs. Tried the scotch brand laminator I had and didn't like the results. Too many spots didn't take the foil. Then I bought the laminator Gina used on her video. Ran the foil and snowflake card stock through 3 and 4 times, right side up, upside down, 3mil setting, 5mil setting, added a shim, used parchment paper as a transfer, used no transfer, used iCraft foil and Heidi Swapp. Could not get rid of the black toner spots. Any ideas on what else I can try?

I will remember that when I get the Royal Sovereign one. The other one always showed me when the light turned green that it was ready. But it was not a heating issue with it, but the fact it would not feed.

ALWAYS make sure to let the laminator hear up about 30 minutes prior to running the first piece through.

Verna, I had a $16 one also. It just up and quit! Wouldn't do anything! I got the mini mink and am waiting for my new Happy Mail! Tomorrow I hope. Have plenty of supplies, just want the new ones! Haha! Have fun, love the cards in the hop!

Good luck on your new one. I guess I had mine long enough to know I like the foiling a great deal so bought lots more supplies for it. So I feel I have to get me a new laminator.

Right, but just a reminder that the green light doesn't mean it's ready when it comes to foil. Heat it up for about 25-30 minutes no matter what the light says. :)

I will wait 30 minutes. They don't give instructions for foiling so it is good you know the ins and outs of it. I think I ordered the same as yours..RS CL-1223. And, we discovered the motor went out on my old laminator. I should have a new one by Tuesday if all goes well.
