I did a quick search for EZ-Laminator @ Walmart.com to see what this thing costs. I have come up empty, do i have my facts straight ?

Peace...

Please do an experiment with one that got hot laminated to see if the print is still viable.

I already did, that's why I said it appeared to work fine :)
I cut a GT print in half, hot laminated one half and put the other in a baggie.
I made up some syringes from the prints, and syringes from both halves showed no difference in germinating and growing nicely in 3 PF jars each.
Not by any means an exhaustive trial, but I've done a few more hot laminated prints since, and if there's any problem with those, I'll definitely be reporting it! ;)

I took a few deliberately faint prints of some of your Z that I'll try germinating soon. Fewer spores should mean any problems will manifest themselves more readily.

Thanks for the tek Shed. Sounds like something I need to be doing. I love watching movies.

Dukex, they don't seem to have it on the website apparently, but it is near the school supplies. There is always a section with office supplies...look there when you are IN a store. Right next to the shredders.

Here are a couple of pix of the cold laminator (and that is Ladybug my old doggie in the background of one) and some examples of the bookmarks that have been fun to make lately. :) The calvin is a Z and all the rest are PE (Peg or PE6 if you insist). :) 30 foot cartridges are right there on the shelf too. Something like $13US for the cartridge.

if so thats VERY COOL, and shows a lot of love towards the art of printing.

It was a "generic" A6 laminator from an office supply store.
Something like the one below:
