One of the cards I got this year was from a friend who owns a dude ranch in Wyoming. I know the sketch it’s made from means a lot to her, so I decided to see what the Glowforge could do. A scan, some cleanup, and two hours in the laser…
From 5"x7" card stock to a 11"x16" sheet of basswood plywood, I think it’ll be a nice surprise when it shows up in the mail.
They will absolutely love it!!

What format did you scan the picture in?
I scanned it at 1200 dpi and saved it as an uncompressed PNG just to minimize artifacts.

Nice. What scanner? The real hi-res ones are not easy to find or afford.
It’s just a Canon multifunction printer. I got tired of buying good scanners and having them not support the latest OS update…

I’ll have to check them out again.

She is going to be so thrilled! Gifts like this are what makes having a Glowforge so fun. Nice going!
We have the big Epson that was ~$200 that prints 17x23 and scans half that.
