Default Re: Laser Warning Labels: A How-To Guide

I did the exact same thing
However using gloss photo paper will make it look much better.
there is no grain, and the tape has no gaps, make it look perfect.
Now only if there was foil labels for inkjet printers somewhere...

Great tutorial.

However, I would like to point out that there is a spelling error on your label

These are infinitely sizeable.
I see what you did there. >.>

I've still got SVG support on my list of updates for the label generator. Just a matter of finding the time to do it.

I don't use gloss paper since it tends to be much thicker than regular paper, and thus doesn't stick to curves as well. That foil looks cool though.

here's an alternative for foil labels, in silver or gold. I use the silver, downside is that there just a little thicker than a real foil label.

Default Re: Laser Warning Labels: A How-To Guide

I wanna thank RA_pierce for this idea!.

When i read this thread a year ago by the time it was posted i told to myself this would be one of the first things i would do once i start to buy my lasers

And finally not long ago i finally could... didnt do it before cuz i was missing a decent printer with color ink LoL, and i was lazy to go a computer rent place.

Anyways i pretty much did the same of what RA suggests except i didnt want to pay like $20+ for a spray adhesive so i used some sort of autoadhesive paper u can print on (dunno the proper name) and here are the results!:





Warning label designs are pretty general but until i come up with something better, these will do

Thanks again RA!
