I am looking for a supplier who can make wooden hex blocks to custom sizes, and possible can stamp/burn/paint simple images on each. Any ideas, directions much appreciated.

Ahhh, the memories of my first post! Update: Blue Panther LLC makes wooden hexes, and can burn (laser engrave) images into them.

They can also do color printing directly on wood.

This is great!

Thanks a lot for posting the website. This looks exactly like what I want/need. I was going to get some hexagonal Delrin rod and cut my own pieces, but I think this will work better.

Thanks again,

PS I still like Delrin and I might experiment with it anyway. For those of you that don't know what Delrin is, it's a self-lubricating, tough plastic that's used in maufacturing and machine parts.

A few years ago I used to be a big paintball enthusiast and I kept hearing about Delrin for the bolts used in paintball markers. I looked it up and it's neat stuff. It's got a nice, slick feeling when you pick it up. It almost feels oily, but it's not. I'll bet Blue Panther could burn some really cool images into it. My problem is finding a company that'll sell it to me in small quantities for a good price. I will confess I haven't tried really hard, but I've written to a couple places. One of them never responded. The other would only ship it to me in 10' lengths. That's way to much for a prototype. I'll poke around some more and if I find it for a good price, I'll post here. Depending on how much I have left after my prototype, I'll ship some to Blue Panther to see how it works for laser engraving and maybe some color imaging on the tiles.

Color printing

My experience with the color printing is that it looks a little washed out. Which if you are looking for that look is great! Just to be forewarned it is not exactly like the crisp look of printing on paper.

People have really liked the tiles for my game that are birch wood laser engraved, so it can add a lot of value to a game.

Also BP has stock pieces you can get pretty cheap to use for prototyping.
