Laser-cut Bookboard!

Posted on by Jordan Hurder

One of the perks of my new job is that I have access to a laser cutter that I can use to cut bookboard into precise shapes. For anyone unfamiliar with bookboard, it isn’t like cardboard, thick paper, or illustration board - it’s incredibly dense, made up of layers of different materials mashed together into a rigid board. Cutting even mid-weight bookboard by hand is nearly impossible, and the shape you see here would take hours and multiple x-acto blades and still not look nearly as good as this one. (In case you were curious, this board will make up the cover of the Carol Es | Neil Farber deluxe edition we’re working on.)
