gregory, that is great...if I understand it right...

RE: hot pouches, and cutting right up to the edge of the card (with no remaining laminate)
Maybe you discovered the trick...)laminate pouches run through TWICE and
then you can cut right up to the edge of the image

Question:
Have you used the deck a LOT to see if it also fluffs up on the corners, like the cold laminate does?

Re: A4
gregory, I found this for you:
quoting:
"A4 Paper is a standardized paper size established by the International Standards Organization.
The paper dimensions are 210 x 297 mm. Throughout Europe and the world
A4 is the close equivalent to U.S. letter size (8.5" x 11"),
but measuring 8.27 x 11.69 inches." You can read the whole page
here: http://www.graytex.com/a4-paper-size.htm

...and they sell an A4 58 lb here:
It would be thicker if you use the 3 mil hot pouches.
(I want to try this one myself)
http://www.graytex.com/inkjet-papers.htm (100 A4 sheets for $33.78)
(scroll to the bottom of the page)

ETA: Just remembered, in that article for gluing the corners after the lamination
has lifted up the card stock:
the writer said once she had glued them back together, they were very strong
and didn't have any further problems later on. So that is a positive, because
I have a deck I just love and use a LOT...like this! ...glue...here I come!
