Making Game Boards Without Gutters by siskny


This tutorial will show you how to make full wrapped game boards of any number of folds without gutters. The images and procedure will show a board with the front artwork wrapped around to the back of the board, and a backing glued over the ends. The procedure can easily be used to wrap the backing of the board around to the front and then place the front artwork over the ends.


  • Board : Either 2-ply chipboard or book binder’s board (also called Davey board).
