Galactus wants to know if you have been Naughty or Nice
Hello all. I thought I would solicit opinions on the best way to assemble chits. I have printouts of some paper chits that I would like to make a bit more sturdy. I was curious what were some opinions on the best materials to use. I was thinking about just using posterboard (or other stock) and a glue stick, but I have to think there is something better.
I have free access to high end laser devices that can print color up to 12"x18" on 10 pt glossy stock for cards (drop dead gorgeous output) and black & white output up to 3 feet x 500 feet but counters are a problem.
I found using full sheet labels with sticky back on thick poster board or balsa wood works well and makes them easy to pick yp. Balsa wood is much easier to cut with an exacto knife and metal ruler. You can get thin sheets of balsa at hobby stores of varying thinkness depending on what you want. also comes in varyng width like 3" or 4" shich can save on some cutting. Lorna
When I removed my first copy of King of the Table Top from Dragon Magazine, I used Elmer's Glue (always in moderation) to fix the counters to a notebook cover.
Any form of white glue and sturdy card stock will serve very well. An art supply store or hobby shop is likely to sell a variety of paper cardboard stock. Do not use a glossy card; it is likely not porous enough for glue.
i use spray glue as it leaves the paper on cardboard very flat versus looking lumpy - i save all my punched out boards from new games so i have game standard dense cardboard stock - but the most important part to me is cutting with a rotary cutting system from a craft store - it makes a huge difference! anything else looks like hand cut
The cheapest buy is to get Golden Age comic backing boards. You can get a ton of them at any comic store for 5-7 bucks. Then just get spray mount, and presto, mounted pieces. I use a paper cutter (cheap at Office Depot or Staples) and the cutting goes quick.
