Homemade Laser-Cut Rubber Stamps


Chris writes in:

Hi everyone at Adafruit. I wanted to thank you for the Laser Stamp making tutorial. I just produced $400.00 worth of stamps out of $10.00 in material! … I hate paying so much for these stamps, and you saved us a bunch of money with the tutorial.

Anyway, I wanted to say the tutorial helped me greatly. Here are the stamps I made with my new Epilog Helix 40 (cuts like 50).

Also, this gray rubber I used was very easy to cut with no flame issues. But, I had to save the cutting for the last step, as my stamps took 3 runs (40 speed 100 power) with cleaning after each raster run to avoid flashing. When I used the individual fences to vector cut them out (15, 100, 100), I had to horizontal mirror them on my own since the pure vector operation of the Epilog driver won’t do it if you aren’t rastering a stamp I guess. Maybe my last run could have been combined. That may have worked great too.

We made a tutorial for laser-cutting your own rubber stamp! Stampy-stamp your hackerspace’s visitors’ hackerspace passports with your original design. We made a template to get you started, which you can download from Thingiverse.
