So I mentioned in a previous thread, I make some of my own games both original and out of print redo's.

I have looked online for a place to buy Card stock tabs/stands for the the paper characters and cards for my games. They look like these.



Anyone know if a place to buy these in bulk, I have tried hobby stores and game stored in my aree as well as searches on the web with no luck.

Thanks in advance.

Steve Jackson Games used to sell these as the bases for their Cardboard Heroes figures. According to their Web site, all of them are out of print except for the Red color. However, you may be able to do Web some searches and see if any retailers still has Cardboard Heroes bases in stock.

I found these: http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/GAME_AIDS.html

Unfortunately they are in the UK. Does anyone know of a US source for a small volume of these?

There wouldn't happen to be a game that comes with plastic stands, would there?

I ask because I have a hard time paying $15 for 30 plastic bases (after shipping). ...and that's basically the 'nice' price.

Actually, the printed version of New World Disorder comes with 30 bases for $14.95 plus shipping. In what country are you located? The bases themselves don't generally cost much to ship.

I actually found a suitable replacement in these round spirally-lookin' paperclips. They work, and cheaper than card stands.

I have been looking for good stands for a month now and this is by far the most helpful post ive found. The stands at rolcogames are a great price and are just what i was looking for. The round clear ones at em4 look nice too. Ive ordered them both! Thanks Spacerx!
