Does anyone know of somewhere to get bulletin board letters instead of making them by hand? I.E. website, program, etc...

...and some office supply stores (or Hobby Lobby) have the pre-made punch out letters, usually in 2" to 4" size.

Holcombs has lots to choose from. Sometimes, I'll just use a large size font and print out from a word processing or graphics program what I want to say and just trim around the words and laminate them. It's pretty quick instead of doing individual letters.

Scholastic Teacher Store will sell them to you. I often make mine from a kind of large colored print font. I print on a cardstock and cut around the letters with pinking shears. I just make the letters in boxes versus actually cutting out the letters--it's easier and looks okay. I do this when I'm in a hurry. Most schools have a gizmo that makes creating letters from construction paper pretty simple.

I just saw them yesterday at our Dollar Tree store! $1.00 for the same 4 inch letters found at Holcombs. They had many designs to choose from too!

is using those post-it style ones that you can reposition. I bought mine at Walmart in the school supplies but I am sure they are available anywhere. They have two sizes and multiple colors and designs and they are pretty cheap. I bought the large, neon colored holographic ones.

In theory, you put them up long enough to step back and check the alignment or position then tack up. I decided not to mar mine unless absolutely necessary so I vowed not to tack them until they started to fall. I put them up before school and now it is 12 weeks later. None have been tacked yet. Only one fell and it "took" better the second time around. I have some on an old blackboard and more on regular bulletin board paper.

I love them and have not used the old style at all this year.
