You are right, there is no good place in town to buy board. I buy my
bookboard from Hollander's online. It is much thicker than you
describe, but they have a lot of great supplies. And other folks at
the meeting may have different idea's.
Quoting Conor Walker <[address removed]>:
Dear Austin Book Arts Meetup,
I make small boxes to house cassette tapes. In the past I've used a
specific board, which I can't seem to find in Austin. The board is
about as thick as 6-ply poster board, however unlike most poster
board it is acid free and has a gorgeous
natural/somewhat fibrous hue and a smooth layer of wax finish on
both sides of the board. The wax allows for the flexibility and
durability needed for multiple types of folding.
As a neophyte I do not know the name of the board in question. If my
description doesn't ring a bell, I'm open to trying others types of
boards. If you know of a good board, perhaps 4-ply museum board,
please let me know.
I suppose I could have waited until tomorrows meeting for advice, but
I'm young and impatient.
