What sort of cost is involved to get stuff printed out like that? Also, what about the counters - not so much printing them as getting them cut.

Its all very interesting, though.

Vistaprint Canada says ~$60 CAD for a 4'x6' vinyl banner.

For counters I'd make and cut my own. 2mm matte board, full sheet label ink jet printer paper, sharp rotary cutter and a steel rule.

So easily less than $100 CAD.

I recently got a rotary cutter for doing the counters for PnP 'Horse & Musket'. They are much better than using a knife (after a bit of practice!).

Aye' mine is 45mm. It wasn't expensive, (around £10 I think) and came with 3 spare blades.

There are better and easier ways of clipping your counters properly.

It arrived yesterday. I didn't get home until late last night. Was gaming out of town.
