Similar projects worth following
A simple way to create custom business cards, made of wood (well, plywood plus veneer) and an RFID sticker.

Happy carding :-)

What you need:

  • thin veneer (e.g. walnut or plywood)
  • thin aviation plywood (1 mm)
  • wood glue with press (e.g. some heavy books)
  • RFID sticker tag (e.g. NTAG213)
  • smartphone (iphone, android) to program the RFID with contact information
  • laser cutter or engraver

Instead using veneer+plywood+RFID sticker, you can order 'blank' wood business cards (e.g. AliExpress).

That way you don't need to cut the wood and can use a laser engraver instead of a cutter.

    5. use a laser cutter/engraver to write logo/information (be careful not to burn through the area with the RFID sticker
    6. but out the business card
    7. use the smartphone (e.g. with the NFC tools app) to program the RFID (e.g. with a weblink or the contact information)
