A laminator in singing time is definitely not a must-have but in the same breath, it’s a game changer!  If you are looking for a good laminator to use in singing time, check out what I use and HIGHLY recommend!

Recommended Laminator

This question comes up quite frequently in the singing time world:
What type of laminator should I purchase for singing time?
This is the laminator I own and love (Amazon affiliate link):

This does occasionally goes on sale on Amazon!  Especially around Black Friday.

Laminating Sheets

A laminator does no good without laminating sheets.  These off brand laminating sheets work great and are half the cost of the name brands (Amazon affiliate link):

Card Stock

A laminator with laminating sheets does no good if you have nothing to laminate!  When I laminate something, I like to use card stock. It just adds that much more durability to the printable.

My preference is 110 lb. card stock (Amazon affiliate link):

Printer

If you are in the market for a printer, this is what I own.  My hubby is a little bit of a tech geek and this is what he uses for his office.  If you are interested, I have more details HERE on it.

Singing Time Reimbursements

As far as reimbursement goes, I don’t ever turn in receipts for things I buy that I will be keeping.  If I purchase treats for the kiddos (which I really only do occasionally) or something I will be giving them that’s more expensive (coloring books with a digital playlist HERE, for instance), then I get reimbursed for it.

I like to keep the things I make. I use my singing time visuals for family home evening and family parties to name a few!  If I get reimbursed for it all, I feel like it should stay with the primary.

I also feel that each primary music leader has their own style so things I create may be of no use to the next person in the calling.

So I ask you, what items have you found really useful for this calling?  Leave a comment with any suggestions!!

  1. I didn't click the link to find out how much the laminator you want lists for, but I will tell you to always check Amazon's deal of the day (or week or whatever it is) because I bought a swingline laminator for $15 shipped! (because I do have Amazon prime) I also got 100 pouches for about $12 at the same time. Good luck and thanks so much for sharing

  2. Thanks so much for always sharing your info. You really help me stay on top of my calling and stay organized.
    Just wondering if you have looked into the Silhouette Cameo instead of the Cricut Explore. I would highly recommend it instead of the Cricut.

  3. Camille, I have the laminator by scotch and I LOVE it!. I buy my laminating sheets at Sam's Club. They are really cheap, but good quality. Thanks for always having such awesome ideas!!

  4. I have now owned two laminators including the scotch brand. My favorite one is actually a little cheaper (Around $22.00) It's called AmazonBasics Thermal Laminator. I like it better because the laminating pages enter flat instead of at an angle. This keeps little pieces form slidding around and getting ruined while in the machine.

  5. I have the same laminator as you and hate that nothing will stick to it. It's because it's not heat-based. I've found that sticking a tiny piece of duct-tape on the back of the laminated piece and then adding my adhesive, hot glue or Velcro dots orange tic tape works like a charm. Hope that helps! Thanks for all your wonderful ideas. I just called to this calling and am feeling kind of lost with the program coming up. Your blog is a perfect find!
