Back in the 60’s and 70’s the hip cool thing for a guy was to be a member of the Playboy Club, In my quest to recreate 'retro cool stuff, here is today’s Project. . .
This was my source material, first thing I did was harvest the background.
I was going to burn that on a low setting to ‘emboss’ the card before my main printing.
here is a test emboss on some green acrylic
then recreating all the text . . .
I am burning the card on gold / black acrylic - THE RESULTS NEXT POST!

This looks great. Love your write ups of what you are doing…
And here are some Pictures! - I’m still having trouble lining up the cut, the alignment is really hard to see on the screen, and I am taking ‘best guess’
lining up the cut
If you have the engrave and the cut together you can turn the cut to ignore, see if the engrave does what you want, and then turn the cut back on - no alignment necessary.
Your best guess should be way closer than the ~1/4" that looks like. Have you run the Camera Calibration?
I sussed it out
the pictures don’t do it justice, but the rabbit background ALMOST looks like a holograph.
Considering when those were being handed out, it’s likely that is exactly how they did the “hologram” look too!
remember those cool stamps that the way you looked at it was a different scene? my first taste of ‘holographic technology’ back in the '60s
What your talking about is called lenticular printing. I messed about with something sort of like that once:
Crazy what you can do with a Glowforge.
No images on the link
There’s a video, it took a second to load for me too. Must be a weird discourse thing?
Using Chrome windows
Weird now today I cant get it to work.
pour more coffee on it!!!
I just redid it by putting it on youtube, link works now.
I’ll put the link in here too, just because:
Yeah that was early on, when I was trying techniques with no application in mind. I never came back to it.
And my silly playboy card is any different ? for me this is how I learn.
I write comedy as a side hustle, I write jokes that I store in my brain, and wait for the right opportunity to use them … “We will tell no joke before it’s time”
