Regina maker space, Crash Bang Labs celebrates it’s first Annual General Meeting with commemorative laser-cut tokens.
I highjacked Bill Wales original idea of a black acrylic coin, and suggested pushing the frivolous envelope with a toonie-ish design.
Our finished project is a token made with a laser cut 3mm thick black acrylic outer ring with “Crash Bang Labs Annual General Meeting” engraved on both sides. The 3mm thick baltic-birch plywood insert has “1st” on one side & the CBL logo on the reverse.
It was a labor-intensive endeavor to produce 40 tokens, Bill & I spent over four hours creating these gems. The next batch will go much quicker as we also created jigs to help align the engraving of the tail-side of the parts. About half of the time was spent on design and rest on actually cutting and engraving the tokens.
The AGM takes place today at 2 PM, at 2431 8th Ave (East side of The Exchange, North-most door). Everyone is welcome to attend. Immediately following the meeting we’ll move the festivities over to The Exchange for fizzy pops and grub.
