Rated 5 out of 5 by MMQC from Protects As a volunteer in our county's main library, I use Vista Foil regularly to cover softbound books and believe it is a good product. After having read some one star reviews, I would like to suggest that the only time it has not repositioned easily is when the ink of some covers has come off on the the foil and thereby preventing the foil from sticking. In severe cases, I have simply started over with a clean piece of foil with good success. For the best results, a technique must be developed which requires strength in the hands and a good tool to carefully smooth the product against the book without capturing air.

Rated 1 out of 5 by stxlibrarian from New laminate is not what it once was. We have used Vistafoil Vinyl Laminate for years and never had a problem until last year when the backing changed from blue to brown. The claim is that nothing else has changed, but something has clearly changed chemically. There is a noticeable change in quality. Now air bubbles and "streaking" abound where they never did before. Our covering methods have remained the same, but our books do not look nice anymore. I wish I could speak to someone at Vistafoil directly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElizabethH from Great product. Need clear sizing information! I'm a new librarian and a first-time user of paperback laminates. The laminate seems to work great for its intended purpose. I didn't have a problem with bubbles, and was able to reposition it as needed. The gloss was nicely glossy, but still allowed me to see the cover without too many reflections. HOWEVER, since I couldn't find any instructions for how to use the laminate (or how to select sizing), I ordered the 8-inch size, presumably to fit all the 8-inch tall paperbacks we have. Well that didn't work! You need at least 1 inch of EXTRA laminate at the top and bottom of the book to cover it properly. So, if you have an 8-inch paperback, your laminate needs to be at least 10 inches tall. Please be advised. And, Demco, please update your product information so novice users can order the correct size the first time. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by joyce89 from Best Laminate ever!! I have been buying all sizes of Vistafoil Vinyl Laminate from Demco for 25 years. I have tried other brands but have found that I get the smoothest cover on our books by using this Vistafoil. It is very durable and easy to apply and doesn't get all stuck together like other brands I have tried. I can cut the pieces to the size I need at one time and cover my books very quickly as to not take a lot of time. I have also used it to cover small articles like identification cards and newspaper articles. I would recommend using Vistafoil Vinyl Laminate for all your covering needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BLBC from I like a challenge I accidentally purchased the gloss instead of matte and it was a learning curve as to the way it handled. My co-worker refused to use it, so it was up to me. I was able to find a method that worked for me without making wrinkles and I liked the way it looked on the books. My second mistake was to get the 200 roll instead of the 400 roll, so I had to deal with the curling at the end of the roll a lot faster. Next time I will make sure it's a 400 roll and matte where I will have some assistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bookbronco from Extends paperback life!!! Taking the time to cover paperbacks with Vistafoil adds at least a dozen if not more circulations to our paperback titles. Middle school students are so hard on their checkouts and this helps me keep as many titles available as possible for them without a lot of down time, from either trying to repair torn/damaged covers or waiting for new copies to replace our "not so gently" used copies. Thanks for the great product. (And I have a wonderful volunteer who does the covering for me -- win/win all around)

Rated 5 out of 5 by susan58 from Vistafoil Vinyl Laminate Our library purchased the Vista Vinyl Laminate in "12" rolls. It is superb for covering the larger paperback books for the high school library collection and for class sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zach from What I've Been Looking For I've always wanted a way to cover my paperback books. I'm rough on them (due to repeated use) but my books are precious to me! I want to keep them around for a long time, and this does the trick. I used to use paper folders that I would cut to size, but they looked bad. This is a great solution. Make sure that you get a couple of inches taller than your tallest book you want to cover. Most of mine are 9-10 inches tall, so I got the 12" size since it needs to wrap around the cover.
