apologies in advance if my request is redundant.

i'm looking for sources of perforated paper for making prototypes of game cards, so i don't have to spend time with a paper cutter. specifically, i'm looking for 2.5" x 3.5" cards on a standard 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper (so 3 x 3). having a devil of a time finding it.

the best i've found are these folks:
https://www.perforatedpaper.com/

i made a custom design (not hard), as they had no standard template for this. the idea would be to order sheets in either standard weight or card stock.

has anyone ever used these folks? any reports on them?
are there other sources i'm missing?
would others be interested in going in on a large order to get the benefits of scale?

thanks in advance.

thanks. those are 2 x 3.5, rather than 2.5 x 3.5. i'm looking for "standard" sized cards, which can go in sleeves, etc.

Spielmaterial sells playing cards on release paper: https://www.spielematerial.de/en/game-components/blankomater...

Even though they actually ship to the USA, it'll probably be cheaper if you find a local shop that also sells these sheets. However, take my post at least as encouragement: Keep looking, what you're searching is out there.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Have you tried looking for a different sized sleeve? Mayday Games sells a variety of sizes, one of which is 49x93mm, which is pretty close to a business card. Might be worth buying a pack to test them out.

Love your avatar, BTW.

In case the Krauts mount a counteroffensive that threatens Paris, or maybe even... New York, then we can move in and stop them.
