Hello everyone, I’ve been buried in things that have kept me away
from being creative.
Hopefully I can again focus on making things. Anyways, I have a
questions for all of you great people.
Can anyone recommend a online vendor where you can send in your own
vector designs to be laser cut out of card stock or similar material
suitable for use in roller printing onto metal sheet? My Durston has
been neglected and the red headed wife gives me strange looks as to
why I bought it.
Plus using it will help me keep it clean and dry in my humid
Anyways, I know there is a nice person on Etsy who will do this and
I have purchased from her before and may continue, but I was
wondering if there is a more direct digital vendor that will improve
my work flow. (As in, just uploading my vector online and they start
cutting the materials and ship it out fairly quickly).
From what I can tell, many small printing shops want 40 dollars just
to look at the proof but I can make already final vectors with
correct dimensions and should be able to just pick out the material
and they press a few buttons and ship it out.
Just wondering if other people have laser cut roller printing
designs made and what they find efficient.
Quick side note: Since I’m talking about laser cutting, what other
materials could be used for roller printing? The card stock that
I’ve used before seems to only last one or two passes. Could I have
something better laser cut that will last 5 passes perhaps or so?
