Please keep in mind that the MPC is a self-service facility; therefore, we do NOT take orders.
Created as a place for teachers to produce instructional materials, the Materials Production Center (MPC) is a dynamic place for teacher collaboration and sharing. Open all year, this self-service facility can be used by LISD staff and volunteers to work on projects for the school district.
The MPC staff provides technical assistance as well as ideas and creative samples of what this facility is capable of. From lamination to poster making, the MPC provides teachers and volunteers with resources and equipment to support their teaching endeavors and create classroom aids.
This teacher workroom is a great place to work on lesson plans, create classroom visuals or make copies for their students. The MPC has a variety of supplies available: computers, FULL-COLOR xerox, large-format printers to create and print posters or banners. A multitude of paper available for purchase, including colored paper, card stock, construction, sticker paper and more! We offer glue sticks, markers, crayons, colored pencils, and many other items free to use at the MPC. For a full list of supplies, please click here. For more information, please visit our FAQ.
Changing our invoices
Please note that we now have an invoice for CHARGING and one for PAYING (cash or check only). Everyone is required to fill these out completely, do not leave any line on top section blank.
No, we provide training for people to learn how to use our equipment & are here for guidance if they need help with projects. If you call or email us with your projects and we agree to do it for you we charge a $5 order fee per task. ($5 to print $5 to laminate...) We cannot guarantee a completion time, our job is to assist those who come in. The MPC is a self-service facility.
LISD employees may use the center for personal use. During busy times of the year, we ask that these projects are kept to a minimum so teachers and staff can have full access to everything the MPC has to offer. We encourage you to use our self-service Saturdays for personal projects. Volunteers and non-LISD employees are limited to only work on school-related projects.
The MPC is a self-service facility, whereas the Print Shop is a full-service facility. You can come into the MPC to work on your projects, and we are here to help where assistance is needed. Keep in mind that the Print Shop does not have large-format printers, so they are not capable of printing anything larger than 11x17 and they have a minimum order of 50 pages.
