I have not used Tyvek paper. Honecraftdirect

says”Unique spun-bonded polythene that can be cut and glued like paper and colored using all kinds of color mediums.”

I am guessing by that description that standard inks will work. How many are you planning to make? If it just a prototype or you just want to make small batches 20-30 at a time doing it yourself is no problem, I am printing on craft felt & wood with my current project. If you are looking at making hundreds of them and you are not experienced with it you might be better off going to a small screen printing shop.

This is timely, I was looking at rippedsheets.com , I had previously purchased clear injet labels (which have held up really well on wood tiles I made) and just noticed yesterday that they have inket printable tyvek... go to that link and scroll down, it's listed near the bottom.

I also took notice of their inkjet printable static cling labels ... could be the making of an interesting game component.

Hope that's useful.

peace,
Tom

Oh my gosh yes! Colorforms type material would make for a truely portable game. You could revolutionize lengthy games by actually being able to put the game away without fear of pieces falling off their respective spots on the board. What a cool idea!

Edit: Not to mention the ability to place pieces vertically as well as horizontally... 3D here we come!

I've already seen one game in publication that uses static cling pieces ... I think it just came out before Origins (where I picked it up) - it's called "Geist" and the static cling bits represent ghosts.

I haven't played a full game yet, but it seemed fun at the demo. The game doesn't really use the static cling part for anything special - the designer told me she just hates it when the pieces get bumped or moved so she went with the clingy pieces ...

Hi Snudge. I publish games printed on cloth sold in tubes, but I haven't tried Tyvek yet. I'm about to go to bandana printing and am going to try to make custom boxes. Getting labels to stick on tubes is more annoying than it needs to be.

I've put a log of my publication issues here for easy digestion:

Good luck.
