1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    I need a new printer, so a few pertinent questions.

    What weight of card is needed to make a truly serviceable target?
    What printers can handle such card?

    Otherwise it would have to be print on thinnest paper and paste onto card...

    Rob.

    hi everyone
    I googled and printed some targets off then I cut them to the same size of the targets I had already used and glued them on so I have reusable targets just keep glueing the newly printed ones to the used saves buying them.

    I use a Sharpie marker and make a big + on the paper, this allows me to gauge how far I am out of zero, ie 1/2 inch (14mm) left, right, up, down, cheap and saves on ink!

    You could find some old rolls of wall paper and just use that , to mark dots or whatever design you want

    I use a basic inkjet printer, cheap ink, ms word and 200gsm card. Works well and I have something to do in tele conferences. Basic target designs - circles of 5p then 2p. That's it. 9 to a card with some other sighting dots for aim points.....to save wasting card you can also get half height targets with 6 to a card. 2 targets out of 1 A4. I have found this works well.
