Lol no more sacrifices to the postage gods. Working in technology my mind always goes for the HiTech answer. Grabbing so grip tape from the local skateshop today. It can’t be any worse than the enclosure I made this week.
Reviving this thread for just a moment. I now have access to a laser cutter and I’m wondering if anyone has actually tried to cut grip tape with a laser? Does it work or does it just result in really black goopy horrible looking edges?
I have a CO2 laser at work I’m planning on (trying to) cut some Vicious grip tape with. Not sure when yet because I haven’t done my design yet but I’ll let you know if it’s an epic fail or glorious victory.
Well, that couldn’t have possibly worked out better. We nailed it on the first try. Apparently the key is, as you folks recommended here to put it paper side up, configure the laser cutter for “construction paper” with a thickness of 040 and it made a remarkably clean cut all the way around, including a lot of sharp corners.
Interestingly the black grip tape cut more thoroughly than the blue grip tape, so I’d say maybe increase the thickness a bit more (045?) when cutting Blue.
