Paper Money

I am in the process of creating 10-20 prototypes of a boardgame I am working on. I need papermoney (bills of three sizes). All the other parts of the game I can prepare myself in small quantities.

Does anyone know of a producers of papermoney ? Im willing to by a larger quantity if need be, as I can have the final design ready soon.

Alternatively - if i could just buy sets of money intended for existing boardgames I would be willing to wait with own production until the game was closer to printing.

Any thoughts, contacts or ideas will be appriciated

Look, go buy some colored paper and a black ink cart. For 10 to 20 games, print the money yourself. Trust me, it is much cheaper. Plus hire a good kid to cut it out for you. The advantage of having kids I guess for me.

Good point. My only concern is that ordinary paper is not very good for money, as they crumble easily, and are dificult to separate. However I guess a visit to a specialty store would make me much wiser on what types of paper you can squeze through the printer. If thin, flexible, strong coloured paper can be bought that solve the issue.

The money will be used a lot, as some of the copies will be used for educational purpose (course activities).

Click on "miscellaneous" and then scroll down:

You can find money in a number of dollar and other bargain stores, just look in the kids' aisle. I've also seen paper holiday money of different denominations in some of the stores in the local Chinatown.

Have you seen Monoploy money? That stuff is so thin but it never tears. Really!

I just tried out the mygamemoney.com site for my Junkyard Wars money -- looks like they 've got some nice-looking bills. It's a pity I can't put screwdrivers and stuff on it -- I guess the word JUNKYARD will suffice (or whatever I rename the game -- you saw the rules).

The thing that's really cool is that I can acknowledge the people who helped with the game (design it, testplay it, and so forth). There is a STRONG possibility that some "www.bgdf.com" or "Board Game Design Forum" is going to wind up on the $20.

Incidentally, I took the standard Monopoly distribution and removed the $1 bills -- they just get in the way even in Monopoly. All prices etc. are multiples of $5. I replaced the $1 denomination with $250 - no more running out of $100 bills...

You've probably found your answer by now, but here's another source for game parts (including money):
