These are my new business cards… made of wood!
I ordered a custom made stamp online with the logo I designed. It only cost about $12 bucks for the stamp. It came out better than I expected.
It took me about an hour to make 100 maple blanks and another hour to stamp them (while watching TV). I rattle-can sprayed them with shellac before and after the stamp to keep the ink from bleeding and protect it. The forth photo shows the 1-minute jig I made to keep the stamp straight on each blank.
It is a quick and easy enough process to repeat when I need more, and unique enough to catch the eye of potential clients (I hope).
I’m sure I’m not the first to think of this but I’ve never seen it done before.
