Thank you for that fantastic info and I'll do my best to answer your questions below. 1st Q: Would you like us to reiterate our vote in the new pinned topic? A: I am ok with people leaving votes in either the specific topic or the update comments. I am perfectly capable of tallying the votes from two discussions. But, votes should be limited to one discussion or the other as any double voting will not be counted. 2nd Q: About mirrored page layouts & Flippable Terrain. A: I have been thinking about doing this very thing to place variant options (hidden traps anyone?!) that can be flipped easily. I just have to do some testing to make sure it's implemented well, but I do plan on having this in place when the final product is delivered as many home printers and, professional printers, can perform collated printing. I'll work on getting a test pdf up likely next week so that we can all try it out and I'll then make a point of presenting that as an official feature of the terrain. 3rd Q: On paper weights. A: I prefer to use card stock for this type of printed terrain so a weight of at least 80lb - 100lb or 216gsm - 271gsm is going to give you a nice quality less floppy result. If printing at home make sure your printer can handle the higher paper weights 80lb shouldn't be an issue for most printers but the 100lb range can start to be problematic. Also standard printer paper will work pretty well when laminated with thicker laminate material. 4th Q: On cutting laminated paper. A: In a perfect scenario you would have the pieces printed and cut before laminating and then cut the laminated paper just beyond the edge of your cut piece to provide the best seal against any kind of liquid spills. However, that is a lot of extra cutting and probably not something FedEx or a similar service is going to provide. So with that in mind, just know that you may end up with some edge peeling over time as you increase paper thickness and I would not recommend going beyond 100lb. Also, I like to use either a guillotine-style paper cutter or an Exacto knife rather than a pair of scissors to do the actual cutting. Thank you for the great questions and fantastic feedback.
