Hi,

Does anyone have the specs for either the ASL starter kit style or Twilight Struggle style boards (the flexible card stock rather than the heavy weight monopoly style board). I'm thinking in terms of weight and other card-based options (matte, glossy, etc?)

Also, when printing n copies of x number of different maps, do printers consider it to be x runs of n copies, or one job of x multiplied by n?

I'm looking at around 500 copies of 7 boards (3500 sheets) of something like 400gsm (measuring 665mm x 275mm) cardstock - although the weights are dependent on the answers here. At these numbers is it worth staying with a local (UK) printer?

Thanks,

Dave
