Please keep in mind that the MPC is a self-service facility, therefore we do NOT take orders.
The Materials Production Center is a self-service facility open to LISD teachers and volunteers to work on projects for the school district. From lamination to poster making the MPC provides teachers and volunteers with resources and equipment to support their teaching endeavors and create classroom aids. The MPC is basically a giant teacher workroom where teachers can gather to work on their lesson plans, create classroom visuals, or make copies for their students.
The MPC has many supplies available to teachers and staff. We have computers and large-format printers to create and print posters or banners. We have many types of paper available for purchase, including colored paper, card stock, and construction paper. We also have poster board in various colors and tri-fold presentation boards. We offer glue sticks, markers, crayons, colored pencils, and many other items free to use at the MPC. In addition to the above items, we also have project books, and scrap magazines for ideas. 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 and are here for guidance if they need help with projects. 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.
