Die Cutting Machines
MVLS has two Ellison Die Cutting Machines that will cut multiple copies and can be used with various paper/card stock.

The Letter Size Ellison Machine is available for loan to your library for a two week period. All dies but extra large can fit in the letter machine, and paper needs to be cut to fit in the machine.

The Extra Large Size Ellison Machine can be used at MVLS at our Ellison Die Cutting Center. Call us, and bring your paper to make copies. Or, send us paper (up to 100 sheets) and we’ll cut your shapes for you. 8 ½’ by 11” paper will fit in the machine.

To get a sense of the machines and possible project ideas, go to Ellison’s Creative Ideas Site and to AccuCut’s Education Idea Site.

Note: AccuCut dies will work on our Ellison machines.

Call MVLS to borrow the machine, dies or to request copies.
