New Year, New VariQuest Cutout Maker

VariQuest Cutout Maker 1800 Supplies

The Cutout Maker content has had a makeover. The fonts, collections and credit CDs have been discontinued and will no longer be available after January 20th. The new content options are Premium Access CDs and Learning Modules. Here’s what you get with the new products:

You asked for it, and they listened! The VariQuest Premium Access CDs provide you with access to 14 fonts, 173 collections and 3800 shapes. These are available to be renewed yearly or you can now purchase an Unlimited CD – never have to buy content for your Cutout Maker again! With all this content now available to you, you can make your bulletin boards and learning manipulatives more dynamic. You now have multiple fonts to play with, and collections that will enhance learning. If you already have a Total Access CD installed, and you upgrade to the 2.0 software, you’ll “unlock” the Premium Access content automatically! Special pricing is available through July 2011 on the Premium Access CDs, if you’re ready to renew or start investing in this content option.

Learning Modules are excellent ways to add value to the Cutout Maker library on a budget. Each module consists of an educational subject like math, reading or science with related content. You can gain up to 101 shapes and 11 collections depending on the learning module you purchase. Each learning module comes with an activity guide providing you with 10 lessons you can incorporate into your educational units. In addition to the learning activities, you also receive access to an online database providing you with the individual state standards and Common Core State Standards that these lessons are aligned to. Talk about an easy way to provide proof that your lesson plans are on target!

All of these products are now available on our online store to make your purchase easier.

Get Creative with Your School Bulletin Boards Using Your VariQuest Cutout and Poster Maker

Over the summer the bulletin boards and walls were stripped of their decorations and now it’s time to rebuild. Take some time to explore what your Cutout Maker can do to help create stunning bulletin boards!

With the scalable lettering and multiple fonts available, you can create some excellent titles for your boards! The shape library also includes great cutouts to highlight a ton of educational subjects from science related themes like cell parts to physical education. Use the search by keyword option to see if your current lesson plan has anything available to use!

Bullentin Board Examples

Student work can be framed with exciting borders or stapled to the bulletin board with fun designs protecting the corners of the pages. Decorate and get creative! The more eye catching your bulletin board is, the more likely a student will be to take time to stop and learn something new as they mingle in the hallways.

Sometimes information is easier to display using a Poster. That’s where your handy Poster Maker can spring into action!

As your parent teacher conferences and open house nights are rapidly approaching, utilize the Poster Maker to create some really helpful directional posters. Use the “search by keyword” feature to find the arrow posters. These can be customized to help your guests find their way around the school. For large high school campuses, why not scan and print some maps and post them around the school to help the guests find their way around the school? These maps are great for the incoming freshmen too!

With new students, you might need to find a way to help teach them your school’s rules and policies. Use the Poster Maker to help post important information. There are even some great high impact colors like the fluorescent orange on black that can help grab attention. The orange on black posters are perfect for posting safety information!
