Default Re: Material for Cards (HSVT)

Hi, Ken,

The material should be fine, but at 4.68-ish for two cards, which is what you'll get from an A4 sheet, it seems a bit pricey if you need to make more than a few.

You might be better to go for Tufnol. RS are doing quite a good price for the 0.4mm stuff. Sheets are 590mm x 285mm and you get 5 sheets for 11.14. I reckon you should get 5 cards out of each sheet.

I've miked the cards out at between 0.6mm and 0.85mm. Much thicker than 0.85mm will jam in the slot. I reckon the 0.4mm should do you, but RS also do the 0.8mm stuff ( a bit dearer at 20 for 3 sheets)

Have you sussed out a punch yet?

Cheers,

Frank
