Project: Laser Cut Signs

Our friends over in Dublin Maker were in need of some signs for their upcoming event. We are makers so we gave it a go. They wanted road sign styled signage. We started off by finding the just right font. We need something that would work well as a stencil. We ended up choosing Unconform Round.

Once we found the font, it was onto finding the shape of the road sign. A quick google search, we found a lovely svg file of a road sign that had a CC licence.  A moment later on the lasersaur, we had a cardboard prototype.  We played around with the sizing until we felt it was about right. IMG_20160715_193424

To add the wow factor, we decided add a secound plate and spray painted some color and then laminated the two bits together with wood glue.
