Two Great Resources For All Teachers


Ellison Machine and Die Cuts

resources yellow You can use our Ellison Machine for so many things including labels, bulletin board decorations, games, certificates, design elements in class books, etc.
The machine can cut all kinds of shapes, designs, and letters from various materials.

Die cut machines cut materials much more quickly and in a greater volume than just using scissors alone. They are a huge time-saver!


The Button Machine

Among the many ways buttons can and are used by schools:
  • class elections
  • in arts & crafts classes
  • as a small business exercise
  • to teach young students how to use simple machines
  • to show school spirit (mascot buttons!)
  • as name badges
  • for recognizing a job well done (ABC's, knowing multiplication tables, etc.)
  • on photo buttons for sports teams and clubs
  • many, many more!
Call 512.858.7825 or email adultservices@dscl.org to reserve a time.
