Paper Circuits|Use cardstock, reactive foil, and a laminator

http://www.bits4bots.com/blog/paper-circuitscardstock-laser-printer#/



This blog will show you how to make (art or a working) paper circuit. Paper circuits are common and easy to make. I used a basic laminator, cardstock, and reactive foil
 
 
  1. Choose a basic circuit schematic or art design you like. 
  2. Next you will need to print your work using alaser printer using black ink. The heat reactive foil technology will adhere to this type of ink. 
  3. After you have printed your work on card stock you will now be able to send it through the laminator. Simply cut the foil to match the card stock. 
  4. Place the foil paper on top of the card stock
  5. Send both pieces through the laminator. 


Optional (to make a working circuit try laying copper tape or conductive thread on top of printed traces)

Here's what I used:

*HP LaserJet Pro Printer
*Scotch Laminator 3mm or 5mm setting
*Black card stock

Paper Circuits|Card stock circuit with foil paper easy



Create a simple circuit using card stock, reactive foil, and a laminator :) For actual working circuit reinforce with conductive material such as metal tape (copper, silver, aluminum etc) or conductive ink.
