Ellison Die Cuts
The IRC has six (6) Ellison machines that can be used to cut out over 500 different shapes for displays and other instructional purposes. Any material such as foam paper, construction paper, or felt may be used. Patrons must provide their own supplies and present proper identification to use the dies. Delta State students, faculty, staff, and community members may check out Ellison Die Cuts six (6) at a time.
For our complete Ellison Die collection, check out our Ellison Die Brochure.
Die cuts may be checked out for up to 2 hours.
Die cuts may be renewed if another patron is not waiting to use them.
If a patron doesn’t return the item(s) within 2 hours, the person will accrue fines at a rate of $.50 per hour.
If a die cut or a machine is damaged, the patron is responsible for the cost of the die cut or machine at the time of damage.
Fines and damage fees must be paid on an Okra Kard or guest card at the time of return.
