Fire Up that Laminating Machine

At a training session this week, 3-4 sentence case studies were printed on laminated index cards. I'd never seen case studies laminated. Later was an exercise to teach association execs how to do "impact answers" to challenging questions members ask, and the sample questions for the practice session were on ... laminated business cards.

I don't know why I found it so intriguing, but did think laminating:

1. Made the facilitator appear to have taken great care in providing professional materials
2. Retained the case studies and questions in a format that would easily be able to be used again

Going to have to find the laminating machine at the office now ... Here are a few other potential things to laminate:

1. Invocations and oaths of office
2. Wallet-sized contact info for officers, staff, etc.
3. The well known one: Business cards for luggage tags

Any other ideas of things to laminate?
