    What is the difference between a hot and cold laminator? Or a cold laminator with heat assist? If I purchased a larger format printer and did a lot of automotive type applications, which would I need? I'm looking at buying a Roland SP300V with a 38" Daige cold laminator from a guy... is that a sufficient laminator for my needs?

    Daige laminator is 110% junk. You can always use it for an anchor, it's about all it's good for.

    The difference between HOT and COLD laminators, besides the obvious is the cost of the laminates. COLD laminates typically are 2 to 3 times MORE expensive than comparable low-temp laminates. COLD laminators will be less expensive than HOT laminators to purchase.
