Wanted to try cutting my own veneers to print my business cards on. They aren’t exact size but I’m happy with the outcome. I leave a natural edge when I print on cedar and of course they smell great. Softer woods work extremely well, hardwoods brake apart.

Great idea. Did you rubber stamp them?

How do you keep them form splitting over time when you hand them out?

Nice project!
I would think gluing some nice cloth or felt to the back would work nicely.

I mainly use poplar and cedar because they are so soft and living in Florida’s humidity also helps. If they get to brittle I just lay them face down and cover them with a damp cloth.

Aren’t you just trading paper cuts for splinters? LOL

But seriously – a great way to advertise your business and demonstrate your skill. Thanks for sharing.

The felt is a great idea, thank you! And yes, paper cuts for splinters, but in the end it’s all wood, lol

Mine work just fine, about as thick as an envelope and feeds through my printer just like paper. I’ve had no problem with durability using soft wood, and I didn’t have to by any materials, just what I have in the shop.
