Creating Laser Engraved Wooden Stamps

Paper

Introduction

– Creating Laser Engraved Wooden Stamps
Woodblock printing is an ancient method of using wood carving to create impressions on fabric, paper, and other products. In this sample club project we’ve created significant depth on wood blocks that we then colored and imprinted on various types of paper. Less complex than a letterpress, these wood blocks have an engraved relief pattern that, when applied with color and pressed against paper or fabric, creates a permanent impression or stamp. These intricate designs add an elegant touch to invitations and announcements, scrapbook pages, and much more. Check out the steps below and learn to create your very own laser engraved wooden stamps!
