View Full Version : Printing on something besides paper

09-15-2011, 03:51 PM
Been lurkng a whle now and well, starting to get ideas on a new project. I usually work by hand and was thinking of making a map on something like Tyvek. Any thoughts? I thought it'd be a good hand-out for the game I'm going to run as well as be something that would actually last because spils and such shouldn't bother the "paper" itself. And yes, I know working by hand sounds like a nutty thing to do but I just like the feeling of actually drawing on something.

Thanks For Reading,

I don't know about printing on Tyvek but I know permanent markers work on it. Come to think of it, if there are spills and hand smudges then permanent marker might be the only thing you could use. Of course, you'd have to draw things by hand that way. What many folks do is print their map on regular paper then just have it laminated at Kinko's.

we mostly play on paper maps, but we have sometimes just put some plastic over it to be able to use non-permanent markers :)
