Design your cards

I used a QR code generator for mine, but feel free to use the attached business card template file to design to your specific style and business.

Laser cut!

I used the 40W laser available to the public at the Harold Washington Library in Chicago to cut these cards out. I simply downloaded the modified illustrator template I made my design on to the library machine, imported it into Inkscape and printed to the Full Spectrum Laser print driver.

The laser cutter needs you to specify which lines are raster and which are vector. Since I have a combination of raster (the qr code) and vector (cutting the cards out), I had to do 2 separate passes.

Don't have a laser cutter?

But still love the cards? I can make them for you, just head over to my website and I can design and ship them to you within a week. http://buildaweso.me/products/
