Driving down production costs, tricks of the trade.

I am completely new to the business of game board production. After reading through these boards, I'm starting to realize keeping the cost of production as low as possible is the key to making a game work.

So, what are some of the tricks of the trade that fledgling developers can use to manufacture for as low as possible?

I realize the number one cost control is finding a cheap manufacturer, most likely in China; and that few will be willing to give up such a resorce. However, if there is anything you can share please do. And thanks very much for any help.

Oh, BTW are there any game surplus stores one can contact to pick up game parts that don't make it to retail?

I'm not sure about this, but this site:

is quite useful, and if you're in Texas, look for a Teacher's Heaven store -- they have game bits galore, in bulk.
