How much is a die-cut subscription?

The fee to use the Ellison die cut machine is $10.00 annually (plus tax) for individuals. Community members may purchase a subscription to use this service with a credit card. Those affiliated with BGSU may pay with a credit card or their BG1 card.

BGSU departmental groups of less than 50 may purchase a subscription for $30 annually.

BGSU departmental groups of more than 50 may purchase a subscription for $50 annually.

For departmental subscriptions, please email Jess Mullins a written document on office letterhead with the following information: department code, fund number, account number, program code, names of individuals from the department who will be using the Ellison die-cut machines, and a signature of the person who is the primary contact for the group.

All subscriptions are valid for one year from Aug. 15 to the following Aug. 15.

What do I need to bring?

When you visit, bring your die-cut subscription card and show it to personnel at the CRC circulation desk. You should bring paper and other supplies like glue and markers or crayons.
