These are very fun! Great idea too I think they are very fitting to “I solve practical problems” motto!

Those are nice!
Very Very nice…
I really like them. I want to make some with and some without cover tape, so you have some for the fine and some for the rough tasks.
I tried some transfer tape but it didn’t work as well as the effort to remove it/pulling the fibers off the wood. I get really worried because the tabs are “just right”. I do a two sided engraving pass before the cut, which results in a pretty thin tab. Caliper says ~0.4 mm, which results in the perfect snap. Once I get big boy air assist I’ll be removing the last little bit of burn marking in the process.

I can produce one card (front and back) every 20-30 mins. Took a combined total of ~47 hours printing time. At ~$0.07 per card cost for material, and my basic laser cost (which I calculated by using the projected hours of use for the laser, divided by the average life span, only used for personal project calculations) amounts to $0.04-0.07 so in total around $0.14 per card, not including design time. I feel very good about that number. I hope my potential customers will enjoy playing with them as much as I had designing them.
Guess those ones won’t be reaching the bin
