Introduction: Laser Engraved Christmas Postcard
A fun keepsake Christmas card.
Step 1: Supplies Needed
1/8" plywood (or any thin wood)
Computer design program - I used Photoshop Elements 15
Laser Printer - I have a Full Spectrum Hobby Series
Step 2: Design Image
Design your card, front and back in your favorite design program.
Step 3: Prepare for Engraving
Send your images to Inkscape to prepare (turn into a BMP) for engraving.
Step 4: Engrave
Laser engrave the front and back of your card.
Step 5: Prepare to Mail
Lightly sand if necessary, oil. I took my cards to the post office (they need to be hand stamped) and was able to mail them for $.71 each.
Step 6: Christmas Keepsake
Once your recipients receive their card they now have a keepsake to bring out every year! The compliments are fun too.
