Ellison Letter Machines
The Patented Ellison Letter Machine is the original letter and shape cutting system. By using this machine, letters, numbers, and shapes can be cut uniformly, as well as quickly.

* Borders, dioramas, and nameplates are also available.
* If pre-cutting the paper is desired, simply pre-cut the construction paper into 4.5 x 5 squares.
* Four thicknesses of paper may be cut at one time.
* Tip: Laminate paper before cutting to save time and energy!
Ellison Die Cuts
The Teacher Center has over 2000 shapes and letters in the collection, and is still adding more! The dies may be used to cut paper, pop-up sponge material, cardboard, fabric, foil, foam, wallpaper, contact paper, or felt. Dies are great for making math manipulatives, bulletin boards, bookmarks, puppets, posters, banners, games, flash cards, or embossed projects.
The Teacher Center has two 25 wide Laminex laminators, three 27 wide Laminex laminator, and one 42 wide laminator. Lamination preserves and protects newspaper articles, posters, bulletin-board items, folders, booklets, banners, or other flat items.

Helpful Hints: Certain items cannot be laminated, such as: foam board, cardboard, glitter, and Popsicle sticks. When gluing, glue sticks are the better choice rather than Elmer’s or school glue.
