Re: [BKARTS] Shrink wrap



Carol -

Until you find a good professional system and if you're just wrapping small
books, you may want to consider picking up a seal-a-meal at a thrift store.
The technology is the same and you can usually find them with 8-10 inch
mechanisms. Of course, it isn't efficient for wrapping a large volume of
books - the continuous feed of a real shrink wrapper is much more
convenient. On any system that uses a hand-held heat gun, if you use a thin
wrap it can be a challenge to keep the gun moving steadily enough to keep
from getting holes - a sturdier, more expensive wrap would probably save
time in the long run.

with best wishes,
Roberta
