I want to make some awesome laser cut holiday greeting cards.

I want to create a really cool collection of laser cut Holiday greetings.  Each greeting is 5" x 7" and includes an envelope for mailing.

The paper cards will be cut from acid free bamboo or hemp card stock, with a hand made paper slip inside.  Each card includes an envelope for mailing.

Finally, I'm offering custom laser cut holiday lanterns made from FSC certified walnut, white oak, or ash.  The lanterns are 3.75" wide and 6" tall.  They can be cut with any of my holiday designs and look really beautiful with an LED tea candle inside.

My target is to have all of the rewards in the mail on or before November 30th.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The biggest challenge for this project will be meeting the shipping goal of getting all of the greetings in the mail on November 30th.

I've been working with laser cutting & CNC fabrication intensively for more than a year and am able to reserve leased laser cutter time for the production run. The key will be getting any customization choices from backers to set up the files for the cuts.

Sponsors who have pledged rewards with customization will need to provide their choices promptly after the 23rd if I am going to meet the shipping goal.
