The Matchbook


Do we have a source for matchbooks ?

I'd like to get some and put on my website.
And pens if they become available.

Re: The Matchbook


matchbooks were made by hand....and Paulv70 was the guy who did them.

here is his guide:

Here's the matchbook:

Print this on glossy, card stock paper, then replace the cover on a regular matchbook (you want one that's 2" wide) and voila!

hmm...no, you don't want 2 inches wide. I have the one you showed a picture of and it is Wider than it is tall.

The prop picture shows a matchbook that is Taller than it is wide.

The right one is my matchbook.

I used a 20 match matchbook.
Glossy cardstock.
And glued on an actual STRIKER.

Members that want one, PM me.
They'll be $1.

True, I used the template Chuck provided.
So, it's a bit off.

But I like it that way. I don't like to produce something that is totally indistinguishable from the prop. Just in case actual props ever come up for sale.
