Rated 2 out of 5 by MrsKMedia from Not worth the time it takes to put it on. I received a roll of Demco CircExtender hoping to use it to cover the thinnest paperback books for our school library. Unfortunately, the laminate seemed to have picked up the blue ink from the wax paper backing and therefore my books had "Demco" printed on them. I contacted Demco and they very graciously sent me a replacement roll within a couple days! I hoped for the best, but this roll too had the ink transference problem the first roll had. I also noticed as I covered more books that the laminate rips very easily and sticks immediately, making it hard to cover a book well. Perhaps I just got a bad batch, but I do not plan to buy this laminate again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by writingfreak from "Ghostly" protection I recently purchased this product because I like the way it works to protect my paperback books. It is superior to clear contact paper, but it has a not-so-desirable side effect. The printing on the peel-off paper adheres to the laminate itself. In other words, every book I cover has a nice firm finish, but it also has the words DEMCO laminate and the grid lines in a ghostly kind of way. I had forgotten about this problem when I reordered this year--not sure what I'll do in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by deanna2730 from You Get What You Pay For I bought this laminate to cover paperback books and am experiencing buyer's remorse. It was less expensive, but it is also less durable than other laminates I have purchased through Demco. It tears if I am not *very* careful in removing the backing from the laminate, which wastes the produce and my time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Susan04 from I am not sure what is different about the laminate that I ordered this time, but it seems to create more bubbles than the previous laminate that I have used. I love covering books with the laminate, but was not that happy with these rolls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by churchie from pros & cons on this item I cover quite a few paperbacks with this type product. This particular one is a bit thin and 'stretchy', and it does bubble very easily. However, it adheres to the spine & the bends of the cover much better than the thicker product, which is a huge plus for thinner books especially. I cannot stress enough to NOT try to follow the directions printed on the backing paper! Your end result will be totally unsatisfactory. I find that I really need to start at the front edge of the back cover, center the product and very slowly peel off the backing as I smooth the product back and forth with my fingertips (so I can feel bubbles as they form and adjust them). Once I have the product on, I go back over it with a burnisher, but using a burnisher-type product when applying will stretch the product and I end up with more wrinkles or bubbles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shifra from Fail- Laminate is like overboiled spaghetti I have been purchasing rolls of laminate and Superfolds for years. Tonight I covered some smaller books with my 10” CircExtender and it was great. No flaying around of sticky sheets, no wrinkles. Nice. Then I went to cover a larger book with the 14” CircExtender. Both say in the description they are 2.5 mil thick. I do not believe that. This was JUNK. It was warping and stretching, sticking to itself even before I could lay the book down. It wrinkled so bad, I removed it as it was repositionable; moving it stretched the film and it remained wrinkled as I tried to put it back on. What the heck? I see return policy is dicey. It has been 2 months since I got my package, but never used it. So now it seems I am stuck ( lol) with an expensive roll of good for nothing garbage. I would not use this inferior product on anything. When I need rolls, I will ask for samples now, even if I have to pay for it. Why would the products be so different in 2 sizes? Buyer beware. -SheriW

Rated 4 out of 5 by carole77 from very tacky The product is very tacky. However, you can lift and replace. After I covered 50 books, I got the hang of the product. Easier to cover hard back than soft cover.
