Amazon 3rd party seller Bargains N More is selling Elmer's Colored Foam Boards, 20" x 30", 3/16" thick, black/black core, 10-count for $9.11 with free shipping. Phew, that's a mouthful!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006VRTZM?tag=article-boar...

Amazon's price usually hovers around $30-$40 so I hope this isn't a price mistake that will get orders cancelled. If you're overly worried about that and must get some foam core immediately you can select Amazon direct as the seller on the right side for $23.14, which is the lowest I've ever seen it direct from Amazon.

AFAIK this is the foam board/foam core of choice for custom insert makers. If you need inspiration check out this geeklist:

https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/115468/foam-core-insert-m...

Edit: as of 9:05am Central apparently some are still seeing $9.11 while others like me aren't. I'm declaring it DEADish for now, YMMV.

That's gotta be a pricing mistake. Bit for 1 anyways, we'll see what happens. I won't cry if they cancel; I don't even need more foamboard right now.

Weird. I can't see the $9.11 price anymore so I marked it "dead". Are some still seeing it at that price?

$36.23 is what I see now.

If you are still seeing this at a cheaper price refresh your browser just in case.

I just ordered this for $9.11 too. We'll see what happens. The funny thing was that before I logged into my Amazon account, I couldn't see the lower price. That 3rd party seller wasn't listed.

Once I logged in, I suddenly could see that seller and the lower price.

Yup, clicked on other sellers and found it. We will see where we go from here.

Nervous about buying from a third party seller. If the item actually ships, I'm afraid of receiving only a single sheet. In for one anyway... we'll see how it goes.

Shows fine for me on the product page, but when I add to cart I get:

Amazon wrote:

The same seller is also listing a single sheet of green foam board for the same price...

Green Foam Board

My guess is that we get a single sheet of Black/Black foam board. Luckily Amazon will still make things right even if it is a third party. At least they have in the past for me.


*****

Maybe not... if you google "Elmers 950-054" which is the product listed you get a lot of others selling it listed as a 10 pack.

Worked for me, here's hoping it delivers properly. Good timing as I've just started getting inspired to take my first stab at making an insert.

My order was allowed through okay. We'll see!

I haven't done a foam insert before and I haven't seen any plans that would give an idea of how much is required for an average insert. Anyone here care to share, please?

Check this site out:

There are some videos in there about how to work with foamcore. I found them very helpful. He also has plans for lots of games.

Do most people Glue? or pin? The pinning instructions I saw looked pretty good and I would assume are easier.

Glue, then pin to hold together. Once the glue is set remove the pins.
