Thread is getting old but may as well pile on

Laziest way to make perfectly consistent tiles with printed on graphics is ....

1. Print those graphics on full-sheet labels.
2. Apply those labels to your substrate of choice
3. Slice it up on a laser cutter.

Obviously registration is very important, but once you get the hang of it, it's no problem.

Don't the edges get singed? Not really at all, that's only a problem on the back side (side resting on the grid), and that can be minimized by laying paper under your material.

Don't the label / graphics peel off? Surprisingly, no. Bits made a year ago that I haven't bothered to seal are fine. But ones that are meant for use I spray with a clear sealer.
