by Brian Harris on August 7, 2017

30 New Dies Mark Latest Release for Craft and Education Markets

LAKE FOREST, Calif. (August 7, 2017) – Ellison Educational Equipment, Inc., the pioneer of creative die-cutting products for the classroom, is proud to announce its Fall die-cutting collection for the classroom and beyond.

Bringing creativity into every lesson plan, the new dynamic designs help introduce and reinforce new concepts through engaging creative projects to support many subjects, learning styles and curriculums.

The release is highlighted by 30 new Bigz™ Classroom Dies from our sister craft brand, Sizzix®. With designs as diverse as a backpack and Fall Leaves for back to school to finger puppets and dinosaurs to photo props and more, educators can create customized, interactive bulletin boards, décor and other learning materials to connect with their students. Designer Laura Kelly also returns with two dies made from her hand-drawn artwork, including her Badge, Icons #5 die to honor student accomplishments and a Sock Monkey with several fun embellishments for different looks and possibilities.

Also included in the release are 3 steel-rule Ellison® SureCut™ dies to create a book with a camera cover (perfect for student reports on how students spent their summer) and borders of books and houses to reinforce reading and community themes.

Bigz dies are compatible with the Ellison SuperStar®, Ellison Prestige® Pro and Ellison SuperStar Excel machines, while SureCut dies work seamlessly with the Prestige Pro and SuperStar Excel machines. The steel-rule blade inside both dies cut a variety of materials including cardstock, fabric, foam, leather and magnet.

The new collection of classroom dies is available now and in the 2017 Ellison Education Fall Catalog Supplement.
