    So, I thought I would throw up a quick and dirty example of the dungeon tiles together as an adventure map.

    I like this collection! You should add a wall overlay that could cover any given edge of a tile. Maybe something as simple as a black line... OH!! I just got an idea! If you printed this out and covered them with dry erase acetate or if they could be printed onto that type of material you could draw walls right on the tiles themselves.

    Gamerprinter, is that possible? Can you print onto a dry erasable surface and still have the "dry erasability"? (I don't think that is a real word...)

    Yes, its possible. In order to permanently print to dry erase media you must use silk-screen printing or dye-sublimation. (Never of which I do.)

    However, I have a thermal transfer printer (used in sign work) they may do it as well, but I don't know if I can get punched rolls of dry erase film to work with my printer.

    But, yes, its possible.

    Yes, of course, standard heat lamination works like dry erase. The question was whether I could print onto the lamination film, not the dungeon tile - for some reason... ask RP.

    If you printed your grid on the tile, or the border of the map area with entries exposed, it could be a normal laminaton job. To print on the lamination film prepared to work on my sprocket-driven thermal printer - kind of specialized media, so unless a given media is available, it may not be possible.

    I shied away from the lamination as it leaves a "border" of lamination around the tile which I predict will cause the tiles to be continually knocked around. With the only the tile there they can be butted up against each other and a quick strip of masking tape on the back will keep them cleanly together. Sure you could do the same thing with laminated pieces, but it takes longer and is harder to get solidly butted up. How do I know this you may ask? I tried both methods many years ago. Now if the current lamination process doesn't need the border anymore, than that is probably a much better way to go.

    Post cut off the edges

    When I laminate, unless someone is looking for complete encapsulation - water tight in other words, I usually cut of the lamination material to the edge of the sheet. So there is nothing left over.

    And it won't peel away over time? I tried that method back then, but I found it started to peel after only a couple uses. Of course I'm sure material and machines have improved by now so that may no longer be a problem. If you draw a line past the edge of the tile will the ink then slip passed the laminate and soak in to the printed tile?
