I recently bought a batch of 100 cork coaster blanks and have been playing with a bunch of designs to learn how to modify images in Inkscape to be more laser friendly. Here is the latest batch of Empire themed ones. Amazon Link for coaster blanks. GF settings - power 5 | speed 1000 | LPI varied | Material height 0.118
These look great!! I have some coaster plans too. How long did these take to run?
Oooh! That second one…
Depended on the LPI - the first one was at the default 225 and only took about 15 minutes, but the second one was at max LPI 1335 and took about 40 minutes. @Jules - the second one is my favorite too.
They’re all great but the second one made me say “Whoa!”
They are all very cool! The second one is very striking, but I kinda like the shading on #3 the best. Thanks for the link too, I already have some in my Amazon cart
I engraved a cork trivet as a test but the soot gets a bit smudgy. Everyone’s first reaction is to pick it up and rub it.
Any ever figure out the best method for protecting the image from smudging?
