0. Supplies
- Materials you want to print on
- Your design file (either by illustrator or by CoreDraw)

1. Prepare materials
- Choose the right thickenss paper or wood
- I used 140lb(pounds per ream) or 300gsm(grams per square meter) tangerine paper and 1/64 tickness Plywood

Step 1: Design your Biz Cards

1. Use the Template file on Adobe (http://goo.gl/55sbi or download attached illustrator file)
- For this file, you only need to consider the red outline (blue outline makes your biz cards bigger than usual)

2. Consider which part you want to cut or engrave
- For cutting, you need to create the outlines of shapes or fonts
- Make the outlines less than 0.001 pt

Tip: Don't make the outline hidden by overlayering empty shapes (see the figure)

- For engraving, you need it to be rastered or its outline thick enough
- It depends on a laser cutting machine you use (typically more than 0.25 pt)
can you make a how to video please?
Those look great! Do you happen to remember where you got your thin plywood?
Any good hobby shop will have 1/64 plywood.
I bought it at Blick offline store. (http://www.dickblick.com/) <br>I also found it on Amazon by searching &quot;plywood 1/8&quot;
5 stars! <br>Looks great!
