Leather and wood business cards

I have been talking with my local tack shop in town and they seem interested in my laser cutting services so i decided to make them a custom bushiness card in hopes they think of me when they need something.

Started out with a wooden card by engraving 2 pieces of veneer and sticking them together.
I engraved a cabin/ settler scene to fit with the theme of the store.


This is some paper backed preglued white birch veneer i had laying around.
I attempted to design a business card but don’t really know much about making things pretty. I included a qr code with info about what materials i can use as well as my personal info so people can scan it if they wish and add me to their contacts easily.


Found some leather scrap and thought what would be better for a tack shop than a leather business card or to incorporate it in there somehow.
Took some fine adjustment but wound up with this.



Was a really fine line between scorching the leather and and getting a nice gradient ended up with settings of 1000 speed,7 pews, 22 LPI, convert to dots, pattern density set at 0-100% and no masking material. in hindsight i would add a but more power as i lost some of the fine details. I coated the fronts and backs with some butcher block oil and finish after a little bit of sanding with some 400 grit paper to give it a nice smooth feel in the hand.

I hope they find it interesting and decide to call on me. If they do it might be a good idea to make tailored back panels for specific businesses in town as well as a generic design that could show off what I can do with the :glowforge:

Thanks for your time have a great day. :beers:
