Here is an open source program that creates simple punchcard designs from your images.

http://oknitme.serpicanaro.org/#

You can upload a 2 color image and it translates your drawing to punchcard format.

The project creates a file that is designed to be used with laser printers. (The output is in SVG – scalable vector graphic format).  But it can also be used to manually create punchcards.

  1. Follow the instructions on the website and upload an image
  2. Open the SVG output in Illustrator, Inkscape or any Vector editing program
  3. Enlarge the stroke of all the objects, so they could be seen
  4. Print out the design
  5. Tape the print out to a sunny window
  6. Place a blank punchcard on top and mark the design
  7. Manually punch the card
