I’m trying to find the right settings to make business cards on discarded boxes. I’m using sparkling water, girl scout cookie, cracker and other various boxes. The box is .015in. I looked through the non-proof grade material settings and combed through the community glowforge page and have not had any luck. I have tried different score settings and engrave settings. Has anyone tried this with success? Or maybe didn’t make business cards but score/engraved on the same material? Any help would be appreciated.
After many tweeks I finally got something I love. We recycle our cereal, cracker and sparkling water boxes to use for the business cards.

Personally I run tests on any new/different material to dial in the settings that give me what I want. In your case the material is cheap, so you have that on your side.
You can use someone’s suggested settings as a starting point, but I would push to either side of power just to satisfy myself with the difference.
Exploring the settings is like a treasure hunt for me, don’t deny yourself the thrill of discovery!
