Not sure I am even using the term properly, but I was wondering how you all find the companies to make parts for your games? I am looking for a company that can do I guess laser cutting of foam, maybe another method would be acceptable, just need sheets cut. The foam is 1/4 inch thing and I am looking for notches to be cut out on the edges. But haven't the foggiest idea what to search for, but also wondered if there was a LIST on BGDF of suppliers/manufacturers etc...

Thank you

It depends

If you're looking for a manufacturer that can do small runs (1500 copies), you might want to take a look at this website: http://thornhenge.com/factory-tours/

If it's just for prototyping, I'd recommend basically Arts & Crafts stores or The Gamecrafter, depending on your particular needs.
