Prize Wheel and Button Maker: Home

Information about the PALNI prize wheels and button maker: their benefits, and how to reserve and borrow.

Reserve the Prize Wheel or Button Maker

Prize Wheels may be reserved by contacting Eric/Ruth at infocoordinators@palni.edu.

The button maker may be reserved by contacting Carly at carly@palni.edu.

Prize Wheel Guidelines

PALNI has used some PALNI staff Research and Development funds to purchase two Prize Wheels that can be borrowed by PALNI schools. One has a permanent location with Eric Bradley at Goshen and one has a permanent location with Ruth Szpunar at DePauw.
 
We envision these being used in workshops, open houses, and for general fun at events, including PALNI events.
 
The wheels can be borrowed from Eric or Ruth for a maximum of one month--possibly for a shorter period if there is a time frame they are in high demand like back to school or finals.
 
You can see a demo of Sally Neal trying out a wheel by watching this clip:
https://vimeo.com/130545318 The wheels can either be used at table height or at standing height.
 
Please note that the wheels weigh 40 lb including a case, and are not easy to transport.
 
Prize Wheels may be reserved by contacting Eric/Ruth at infocoordinators@palni.edu.
 
We will schedule them on PALNI Hub calendars.  Access to the calendars has been given to all PALNI Hub users--contact Eric/Ruth for help in displaying the calendars.  
 
Templates for the prize spaces (there are 12) on the wheels can be obtained in Microsoft Word, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe PDF formats. (see Template Tab for links)
 
The center part of the wheels cannot be changed from the PALNI logo.
 
PALNI will not supply all of the prizes for the wheels, but will supply some PALNI logoed items as available.  We recommend purchasing prizes from Oriental Trading for large events and from Dollar Tree for smaller events.

Button Maker Guidelines

PALNI has one button maker that can be borrowed by PALNI schools. It lives at Butler with the Office Admin, Carly. It is free to borrow but we do ask that each institution pays for their own buttons. 
 
The button maker can be borrowed from Carly for a maximum of one month--possibly for a shorter period if there is a time frame they are in high demand like back to school or finals.

Buttons may be reserved by contacting Carly, carly@palni.edu.
 
Templates for the buttons can be found in the Templates tab above, create your own, or find some freely available on the internet. The button size is 2.25 inches and a circular paper cutter comes with the button maker for easy cutting.
