New Shape-Cutter Offers More Affordability, Versatility and Compatibility
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (November 9, 2009) – Ellison, the world's leading manufacturer of award-winning hand-operated die-cutting equipment, is pleased to announce its latest shape-cutting machine for the education market, the Ellison® AllStar® SuperStar™ Machine.
Capable of cutting with every AllStar Die and most Sizzix® Dies (when Sizzix Cutting Pads and Platforms are used), this revolutionary new machine creates an amazing assortment of engaging hands-on activities and powerful reinforcing visuals – all for under $100 (actual MSRP $99).
“With the SuperStar, we’ve built a machine that educators can afford for themselves or easily obtain with a purchase order from their school,” said Kristin Highberg, Ellison Executive VP of Sales & Marketing. “Now every classroom can have their own SuperStar!”
At 12 pounds, the streamlined design of the SuperStar allows for a remarkably lightweight machine that can be easily transported between the school and home environments. And with Sizzix and AllStar Die compatibility, the SuperStar unleashes more design choices than ever for the teacher turned crafter, including everything from greeting cards, scrapbook pages, fashion and home décor elements to hands-on activities, themed bulletin boards, classroom decorations and much more.
The SuperStar also cuts many materials including cardstock, construction paper, decorator foils, fabric, leather, magnets, plastic shrink film, quilt batting, static cling vinyl and more.
The AllStar SuperStar Machine is available from Authorized Ellison Retailers and the official Ellison education website. For more information, please visit ellisoneducation.com.
