I like to share what helps me out. Repurposing material to fit my needs. I repurpose wasted card stock from a local print company to make my own earring holders.
I like this for so many reasons.
Fantastic idea. And, they look great!
If you plan to make a lot of these people have made rubber stamps on the Glowforge to speed up the marking process.
Granted the engraved cards look nice but it’s an option if you suddenly need 300 cards. The engraving step would make that hard to fulfill in a quick timeframe.
Thanks for your comment.
Great, advise a stamp is in the works also.
People have been so impressed with the laser cut and scored cards I will keep on making them. It doesn’t take long and because of them, it has created job opportunities for more work. The material I use is free and plentiful.
hmm scored, or engraved? If it’s scoring it could go very quickly and forget everything I just said
Scored, yes and it is quick.
Your advice is still very good.
I do that with Amazon boxes! And score also, much faster than engraving.
I love how yours look; very professional.
Way to go! Looks great.
I would love to see examples of your work for inspiration.
I think you saw the earring cards already, but I’ve made packaging for my keychains and ornaments, too! Though I sent the keychains off without taking a picture, because I’m smart.
I have Thank you so much for sharing.
I love the ornament holders from recycled cardboard, such a great reuse for the cardboard and great protection for your ornaments when shipping them. Gives me some ideas. Thanks for sharing.
Love this! Can someone tell me what settings they used for this? I’ve cut and engraved thicker card stock but it definitely had some “burnt” looking edges etc. Anything is helpful!
These look great
Welcome to the forum.
Experimenting with new material will give you the best knowledge for your purpose and material. That being said, here is a very valuable post about cardstock: Somewhat Comprehensive Testing of Settings for Cutting Paper and Cardstock
If you’re going to Amazon box route, then 1/8 cardboard settings are your friend
Thank you for you’re kind reply! That is helpful
Thank you! Where do I find the 1/8 cardboard settings?
Ok I just saw in the article! Haha thank you both for your help
