This happened with XKCD, and it made me laugh. I thought it was so clever i wanted to make an ornament so i can hang a little big of nerdyness on my tree this year. All this took was a laser cutter and acrylic!
You can use this to transfer any comic into a fun and festive ornament!
Step 1: Preparing your images
I had to first take out the color from the image using an image editing program. Next i used illustrator to put the image into curves.
Putting the image into curves allows the laser cutter to make the lines more clean and crisp.
Lastly i used corel draw to layout how it would be engraved and cut. I had a nice border and a hole for an ornament hook.
Step 2: Cutting the image
It took me a few tries to get something that i liked. I found that the images on clear turned out a lot better than those on the colored acrylic.
Don't have a laser cutter available? Try Ponoko or another laser cutting service.
