Hi,
I'm about to get a proper colour printer, and one of the things I wanted most out of it was to print high quality chits for variants such as Citizens of Arkham and Arkham Investigations. I could never quite bring myself to follow through with normal paper, sticky tape and glue solutions for fear that this tactile inferiority would somehow detract from my Arkham experience.

So my question to the group is where can I get textured adhesive paper like that used on the original Arkham components? Non-adhesive textured paper might do the job, as we could get some double sided full-page adhesive sheets to create our own.

Cheers

Jess

Hi, my method for monster tokens is textured paper + double sided sticky tape on to card. Once in the cup you can not tell the difference.
Cards are tricky and I have never satisfactorily made them. I'm inclined to make a batch on photopaper, put the cards in sleeves, and devise a random method when drawing so as to choose between official decks and one's own deck.


BTW, I did another Citizen card:

The Xyron sticker-making machine can make a sticker out of any kind of paper. Might work for what you need:
