USPS Keychains


#1

I’ve always wanted to share some free files here, but I wasn’t sure which ones I’d actually like to share. Well during last month my wife bombarded our local post office with a ton of packages to mail out. They’re really great people and helped her out, and are always willing to grab my packages from the back even when I show up without the ticket for them :sweat_smile:

I’m sure I’m not the only one that was impressed by their local post office, so here is keychain design that you can print out for them and share some love! I actually intended to make some ornaments for them but Christmas came and went, so they’re just gonna have to put up with a reminder everyday instead of once a year :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Here’s a pic to show you what they look. I should mention that I took out the name of my office as well as my signature, so you can use it as is, or add anything you like. The design is from the logo previous to the current one. I just liked it better, and recreated most of it:

As usual … high quality design by Ray :glowforge::sunglasses:

Oooh, one of those would have been handy to have this year. (We’re breaking in a new mail carrier.) :grinning:


#4

Haha, thank you!


#5

I like that rounded rectangle shape—it’s a bit unusual.


#6

Great engraving, thanks for the file.


#7

Thanks for the file!
I have a number of friends that work for the postal service. I’ll be printing some out for them.


#8

Thanks! It’s just an extension of the original design, really. Somebody somewhere in the government thought it up way before me :grin:

@curt no problem, I didn’t used to have friends there, but I sure do now! I’ll be swinging these by in a couple of hours, hopefully whoever is there gives them out to the other people who work there haha

Beautiful work. I am completely new to this, received my laser last week. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful design, I hope to print it some day, when I figure my printed out

Just make sure you learn quickly about turning layers off and on, that’ll save you a lot of headache :grin:

Still to this day, after having mine for over a year do I forget to turn layers off and ruin a project from time to time :grimacing:

:worried: Never been so nervous in my life, but Thank you so much for your reply and advice!!!


#12

Thank you for this! My best friend is a postal carrier and I will make her one!! You’re awesome!


#13

You’ll do great! I made a list of rules to follow before doing a project, might be something to do for yourself just put it somewhere you have to look like a sticky note off of the side of your monitor :grin:

Welcome to the fun.
Start with stuff that can fail. No need for nerves… until you have somebody’s one-of-a-kind thing and they’re like, “no problem, just engrave it.”
And you’re like… “ummmmm…”
Hehehe.
You can try again on most things. Iterate in cardboard (WATCH IT) and enjoy.

Beautiful and thoughtful gift. I love these.
Well designed and pretty.

Beautiful and very thoughtful.

Oh I was supposed to post a pic of the rules I made for myself. I made them in veneer and stuck them right to my laptop!

These are very nice! I currently don’t know anyone with the post office … but, I’m very fond of using their facility. We never see them as they deliver at the roadside box.

Thank you for sharing your file!
