MediaPLEX: Ellison Die Cuts

Cutting Guidelines

There is no charge to use the Ellison Die cuts.

Paper is available for purchase in the MediaPLEX.

We do ask that you put away all dies and throw away paper scraps when you finish.


Step by Step

 1.  Pick out a wooden die shape

2.  Trim your paper to fit in Ellison Press.  Align the paper on the rubber side of the die and then place on the tray paper side down.

3.  Slide the whole tray to the left until the wooden die is under the press.

4.  Pull the handle in the clockwise motion.  Repeat this step if cutting more than one piece of paper. (one pull for each piece of paper)

5.  Return handle to the uprigt position, slide the tray back to the right.  Lift up the wooden die and the shape will be cut out of the paper.


The MediaPLEX has 3 different Ellison fonts and sizes.
