    Default Some die cut stickers for Sticker Exchange

    So this is my first attempt to punch out some stickers DIY-style- if it goes well I'm sending them in for Sticker Exchange

    First I printed some stickers during lunch break:


    then I took a can of pinaple, and a plank


    made a template of sticker to be


    sprayed it on the plank


    cut some metal stripes fom the can, and shaped them in form


    glued them in place


    random missprint and glue drying....

    tomorow some grinding and sharping the blades, and hopefuly some test punching (pic will follow)

    oh and I found this on an vacuum unit at work


    BRG! at it's finest!

    Did the die work?

    Have you others info about how to make dies? I know it's a very difficult thing. You need a CNC machine to trace the perimeter of the blade, than you need a special machine to fold the metal.
