MessageI have done HUNDREDS of laminated "tags". THe trick is to make sure your finished product ( assuming you are creating your own name badges) is shorter than the laminate pouch so that there is room to punch a hole where there is no paper.-----Original Message-----

bit of paper inside the hole, allowing moisture to wick under the
laminate. The best way is to make your card a little shorter than the
pouch, leaving about 3/4 - 1" of plastic at the top. Laminate, then
punch the hole so it doesn't go through the paper. Try to keep the hole
as far from the edge as you can so the ring doesn't rip through the end
of the tag.
We've probably done thousands of ID tags like this. Have fun!

Just bought a pouch laminator for various caching-related activities,
and was wondering if anyone has any tips on creating laminated cards
with keyring holes in them.
Specifically, should I punch the hole in the card and/or laminate
pouch before or after I run it through the laminator? Thanks.
