I'm sorry your question has been here so long without an answer! I do this often, making tags and stakes to decorate my daughter-in-law's grave. It laminates great!

As the machine can handle quite a bit... ALL laminators have issue with multiple layers. Especially all cardstock. I am leaving today on Vacation BUT... I can try it on Monday with a couple of different types of Lam sheets and let you know how it goes.

Sorry its been so long, I haven't been in this section for a while.

Just yesterday I laminated standard construction paper with leaf drawings outlined in school glue. The glue was meant to be raised up off the paper and then colored in with oil pastels. I was a little concerned but was pleasantly surprised. There were a couple of small bubbles on the edges. I did run the art work through three time to insure the seal was good. The glue melting was a concern but it ended up slightly melting and then dried fine.

I've laminated several little things like this. I made a book for my daughter with the alphabet on it. Each one had layers some had upwards of 5 layers.

The Yourstory did very well and laminated them nicely. My trick was to run it through once - rub really good around the image. THen let cool. I then ran it back in the machine a differenty way. I ran it through 2 times and works nicely. There is a slight little gap but nothing major. I've used a coupld of brands and found no major difference.

Here's an old photo of what I did.
