Its interesting the things you learn along the way as well. A few things to note: A standard deck of playing cards measures 3 1/2" x 2 1/2". There are 52 cards in a deck, or 54 if you count the 2 jokers. Our Epilog Zing 40 Watt laser took on average about 40 seconds to laser cut each card. In the examples shown we used Embassy Font. A couple reasons we used embassy font is that it has proven to us to be a popular font, but more importantly the cursive style font connects all the letters together allowing the name to be held in place once the laser cuts it out. As you can see in the photo we purposely attached the first and last letter to the frame of the card so that it would stay in place. (We did have to use a little AutoCAD magic to create the full affect) I'm sure our LXI sign software or Corel Draw could do the same thing.
We plan on offering custom laser cut decks of cards in our store soon. These would make great table decorations, novelty gifts, or just fun unique gifts for that hard to shop for person. They make great conversation pieces and fun room decor.
