    Ok, guys. I've always had a die-cut machine, and now I don't. I was going to print out all my letters, cut them out and laminate them-but with 12 boards, I think that is the def. of insanity. I'm going to beg my secretary to order me some pre-punched letters, but I'm not sure where to look for them (I'm thinking online). Is there a site that has a particularly good selection of fonts, colors, prices, ect?

    Dollar Tree has a nice amount of punch out letter sets. Also, if you have a Michael's or AC Moore store they sometimes offer the pre-punched letters in bins so you just pick what you want (pretty cheap if I remember). Some of their stores also let you use their machine and punch out the letters you need-you can always ask- I think it just depends on the individual store policies. Also, some scrapbooking stores let you use their die cut machines to cut things out. Good luck!

    Check with your local scrapbooking stores. Many of them have die cut machines and many have a variety of fonts. The one that I frequent often only requires you to pay for the paper.

    I've also purchased some great sets at Dollar Tree. Good Luck!

    Try Trend...they have super cute letters. Creative Teaching Press has a good selection too.

    I really don't like Die Cuts in general, I just make banners with fun fonts on cardstock and laminate! :)

    Lakeshore will allow you to use their punch for a small price.

    How about printing them on banners and cutting cute edges around the banner? I do that all the time. It is easy and it looks great!

    We have a teacher store at our Region Service Center (I'm not sure if they have this in other states?) that has die cuts we can use if we purchase paper. The paper is super cheap!

    I got letters and numbers, in different colors, from Walmart last weekend. 300 letters for $3.67 and 312 numbers for the same.

    The brand is ArtSkills Quick Letters/Numbers and I found them on one of the school supply aisles. The letters come with 312 to a pack, 6 different colors and the numbers come 320 to a pack in neon and Black. The package says they are great for posters and signs and are repositionable. They have a tacky-back on them but I think I will use a stapler or tacky tape on them so they wont leave marks on the wall.

    I have these same letters and numbers. I made my grading scale with them. Very easy to use. Here is a link for them. I don't know if they are the size you need though.

    This is what I did

    What I did is when I was in college I had access to a die cut machine with different fonts. What I did was I took some old manila file folders and made patterns of the letters for each style of letters. I have also done this for several other font styles that I like. They last a long time.
