I know a couple packaging shops here in Cleveland where I ought to be
able to get them printed really cheaply. One thing I am considering
is printing them directly onto corrugated cardboard to save people
the trouble of gluing them. These though will have to be stacked and
shipped flat. I'll see what size priority boxes I can obtain from
the post office. If I can find one large enough to handle a stack of
ten or so 60+cm cardboard squares, then we are in business.
