Just to reiterate, never laminate anything original!

If you store everything in good quality plastic pockets/albums, you shouldn't need to laminate anything anyway (except for season tickets as per Mark1973  ;D  )

My mum and dad have laminated all the certificates we have for swimming, athletics etc and some minor certs we were presented with at school. Any important certs are framed.

I asked for, and got, a laminator for Christmas 2007.  It is still in its box.  I keep meaning to get it out, but I think I'm a bit afraid of it.  I suppose I should just practice with typed sheets that don't matter if I spoil them.
