If working with a laser cutter, the eps file will work best, or the pdf.
I used a lasercutter to make my gingermen. In order to avoid unncessary char from the laser, you’re going to want to tape both sides of the wood with masking tape.
Tape is not necessary if using Shapeoko to cut these.
A 30 watt or better laser should cut through 1/8" thick wood fairly easily.
I sealed my cut pieces with a clear coat of polyurethane wood finish. It helps the wood grain be more visible. You can decorate these with beads, or embroidery floss, or paint depending on your taste. I liked using the embroidery floss on the edges so the gingermen looked more distinctive against the tree.
