Homemade Laser-Cut Rubber Stamps

Laserstamps

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.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
