i have one, my aunt bought it for me for christmas.  i never, ever use it.  i hate dealing with reloading it and buying refills... i'd just as soon use those little sticky squares that are likw 2.99 per box.

I bought the smallest one [a 250 i think?] from Crafts & Stuff & it didn`t work like I thought it would. Do the other models laminate & put adhesive to the back? I want really professional looking stickers, ones that I can cut into different shapes & such. Would one of the other models work for this?

I have a xyron 150- the x-shaped one. I like it, but it's for smaller stuff, and if you're trying to do something like a strip down an 8.5x11 page, you have to be really careful or it will be all crooked or messed up... and I'm having a hard time finding a 250. I want a 510, but I don't know about having to go to michael's every time I need a refill (every trip there ends up with me spending tons and tons of money... ugh).

And how is the laminating on the 510's?

I LOVE my xyrons.  I have the 1200.  That's a biggie.  I bought it when I was teaching and needed to laminate art projects for the kids.

I also bought a 510 and it is really great too. 

Lastly, I bought the one that looks like an X.  It's okay.  I just like the bigger ones better.

I've made stickers and magnets.  I am always laminating things for all types of projects.  Usually I'll wait until I have a number of things to "stick" or 'laminate' because I don't like to waste.

It's great for scrapbooking, it's great for cards as well, and altering items.  You can even make your own 3d sticky dots (can't recall the name of these things, but they cost a lot in the stores).  You can also run different fabrics through it.

We could learn a lot from crayons:
some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names.
All are different colors,
but they all have to learn to live in the same box.
