We need to drink more COFFEE......

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

We need to drink more COFFEE......

Postby chris69 » Mon Jul 10, 2017 6:39 am

Hi,
it can also be tea or what else suits you......
I recently discovered that the posters used in COFFEE JOINT promotions are printed on very high quality card material. One side printed, the other blank. The card material is just under one millimeter thick .Since the ad campaign/promos are generally short lived, they are replaced quite often and generally thrown out.I asked the manager of the coffee place I go to on a regular basis and she was happy to help. Now I have a continues supply of great card material and best of all FREE!
The ones used by PETE'S COFFEE are 18 X 22 inches. I plaid around with it and tested if it would absorb superglue easy and it does.
So here you go guys a cheap source of material that can also be fun.
have a great week everyone

Thanks Chris. We have a Coffee Loft near us and I'll check them. Cheep good card is always a good thing.
