I made these simple name plates for friends who work together.  I used simple Illustrator techniques to cut out and engrave the name plates with a laser cutter. Each name plate is 2" x 8" x 1/4".

Go ahead and try your hand at some custom name plates!

  • 2" x 8" x 1/4" ply wood
  • Laser Cutter
  • Quake Putty - for sticking the sign on your desk
**I made this at TechShop!!!

This really looks like a great <a href="http://www.artcraftdiv.com" rel="nofollow">name plate</a> I would love to have that on my desk at work! i think it is so fun to have your own name plate! Can you tell me where I can find more information like this about different name plates? Thanks!
