Default Ot/ cardboard

I was thinking of trying my hand at making some fantasy cards. Any thoughts on what i can use for the cardboard?

I saw a topic like this in the old posts, and seems a pm would be better to send me if anyone has an idea.

Fyi, Im not a fraud guy, not someone whos looking to make reprints, etc. just a cool winter project might be fun.

You can buy card stock at most office supply or craft stores. I dont think you will find the gray stock that Topps uses but simple white card stock will look very nice if the card is done right.

As someone mentioned, check out Bob Lemke.....he does an incredible job.

Default Cardboard for customs

Making customs is fun! Print them out on photo paper and then glue them to 160 lb. cardstock. You can get the cardstock in different shades and find it anywhere. Some guys use cereal boxes for a vintage look. I print out some on just the cardstock and they look good too. My photobucket has a bunch that I have done.

yea I was just hoping to print them on card stock, not gluing or anything, just wanted to do something simple. I found some card paper, looks ok, but it dosnt say how thick it is.
