Designing the Stamp
In order to enable the kids to design their own stamps, we have created a template where they can draw the design on:
This template can be printed and - after designing the stamp - scanned.
Preparing the Image
After scanning the template with the stamp design, it needs to be prepared for the laser cutter. For this, 3 steps are needed:
- convert it into a 2-bit image (the laser can only produce black or white. no grey-scales are possible.
- invert the colors
- horizontally mirror the image
Laser the Stamp and Test It
The last step follows the regular preparations for engraving pictures with the laser cutter. The needed settings can be found on the page "Laser Cutter Material Settings".
