Pre-Release | Coaster Stamp

#1

My friend wanted me to print out some coasters to hand out during his performances (he often performs in bars).

At first I said, “It takes to long to print out a single coaster, and wood would be expensive.” Then I thought, “Wait, I can just make a coaster stamp.” So, I did.

The old-timey, worn look is part of his branding. This project was super fun.

Great idea, @rebecca !

OOL, but wanted to acknowledge how cool this project is! :clap: :+1: :grinning:


#4

Love that approach! :smile:

These look really great! The stamped look really makes these unique - more than if you had taken all the time to laser each one. Wonderful use of having the Glowforge make a tool to complete a job, rather than do the entire job itself.

That is awesome and the links to what you used is mucho helpful. :slight_smile:


#7

Wow! Love this project!!! Great job!


#8

Very cool idea! Like business cards, only cooler. Great advertising.


#9

I love these. What do you use for a stamp pad, since these are bigger than your typical office stamp pad…


#10

Great idea! And thanks for the links! The screen printer that sends me a lot of decal jobs to print for them has a lot of bars as customers. I sense some up-selling coming soon.


#11

I love the look and waterproof ink a great catch I would have spaced.


#12

Great project here. Thanks for the inspiration. Got me a nice design for the family brewing exploits so the blank coasters would be great!


#13

Oh wow, it came out great! The perfect solution to mass production. He could use it on t-shirts as well!

You don’t really need a stamp pad as large as your item. I typically use stamp pads that are only about 1.5" square. Just dab it all over the stamp until the surface is evenly inked.

Fabulous design for a coaster! Can’t wait to see you do it.

i like this, my one suggestion is to work on the balance of your middle ribbon; things are a little off-center there…could probably just lose the period on the end of BROS. to balance that, too.

ooh, good pro tip


#15

Excellent project! :relaxed:


#16

you could use an INK roller too, like for Linoleum block printing.


#17
