Program Description

Event Details

While spots that include a rubber stamp are full, feel free to stop by any time during this program to learn how to make a rubber stamp on the Glowforge on your own, even if you aren't registered! 

 

Join us for another Glowforge program! This time we'll be making rubber stamps. Choose one of our designs and include your information for a custom rubber stamp! Then on December 2nd, you'll pick up your stamp and backing, as well as learn about making stamps using the Glowforge. For this program we will be providing rubber and acrylic backing to make the stamps! You do not need to stay for the whole two hours--just stop by for 20-30 minutes any time between 4 and 6.

The designs you can pick from are: From the Kitchen of _____, an Ex Libris bookplate, or an address stamp. Three design options will be available for each. Click on the program image to see the designs. All stamps except for 3 and 7 will be approximately 2"x1"; 3 and 7 will be approximately 2"x2".
