Use the electric binding machine to punch holes and bind loose paper into image-enhancing booklets, reports, handbooks, and more. Plastic binders range from 5/16" to 2" in diameter.
A circle cutter automatically cuts the paper into a 2¾" diameter circle while the button maker presses the cut circle into a 2¼" diameter metal button. A computer program is also available to help you design your own buttons. Ask an IRTC staff member for assistance when using this program.

This is a manually operated press that will cut out letters and/or shapes from templates called dies. The dies can be used to cut construction paper, poster board, felt, fabric, magnetic sheets, or static cling vinyl. You may bring in your own materials or purchase them for a nominal fee at the IRTC counter. Please refer to the supplies price list for current prices. There is no charge if you provide your own materials.
HOT Laminator Machines
The IRTC houses three laminators for your convenience. These machines will laminate paper up to 1/16" thick (poster board thickness) and are available during normal IRTC hours of operation. There are two large machines that are 27" wide, while the third machine is smaller at 12" wide.
