Laugargardur is a community garden which located in Reykjavik city area, It's a new group project just started in June of 2014.

Through collaboration with Fab Lab Reykjavík, we made some promotion materials in low budget way:


For introducing the basic information about the garden to people come to the place, we decided to make a sign. The material we have is just a rusty stander which recycled from neighborhood.


After repainted the stander, we used laser cutter to make some stencil boards by recycled paper board.

(Notion: the paper board has to be very flat)


We stenciled the text on the stander in a open space, because of the weather and flatness of paper board, some details are a little bit blur. But it works very well in the garden.

For promoting the project, we need different kinds of promotion materials. Instead of spending money on printing, we deigned a stamp that fits a lot of occasion: The rubber is donated by Fab Lab, 3cm*8cm. Use laser cutter to engrave the rubber with "rubber stamp" mode (quite easy) twice. We got a stamp pad.

Glue the pad onto a wood cube which just fits the size. Than start to stamp!

We used normal A4 papers to fold some envelopes for packaging seed which was a small gift for people.

And at celebration farmers market event, we made some small flags for atmosphere and signage just by post-it paper, BBQ bamboo sticks, and stamp.
