Are cardboard counters usually printed on the same thing? What is it called specifically? "Chip board"? Or what?

You mean like counters from wargames? They're basically the same thing as Puerto Rico victory point chips. They come attached together in what is called a counter sheet which you punch out.

Does that help?

I understand that. They are printed on some sort of paper product. What is that paper product called?

well it might be cardboard, but there are lots of different types of card board. I am sure there is a more specific way to describe it than cardboard. P.S. you dick.

Chipboard is what your printer or paper supplier would most likely refer to it as.

There are several companies that make blank 1/2" and 5/8" counter sheets. I've used GMT and they work fine - you can get them at many online game retailers. Noble Knight Games sells them.

You might also find this interesting. It describes the various processes and materials that can be used to make counters, in some detail.
