Printing and manufacturing terms explained

Whether your game is rules-heavy or pick-up-and-play, at some point, your players are going to reach for the rulebook. This is often the first thing your players see when they open the box, so it’s important that it looks and feels as good as the rest of your game. Available in square or rectangular formats, each with the option of small, medium, or large, your rules can be as light-on or as in-depth as you require, with page count options from a svelte and simple 4 pages all the way up to a 28-page tome. 

Your rulebook is printed on both sides in vibrant full-colour CMYK, on strong yet flexible 128gsm paper of the brightest white, finished off with a satiny clear coating for the squeaky-smooth page-turning feel beloved by rules-lawyers everywhere.

Frequently asked questions

A component is simply a custom item for your board game. Selecting a component will allow you to change its properties to suit the game you have planned.

Your boardgame will typically consist of various types of components. Most of these components can be heavily stylised by adding your own artwork and will have numerous options to tailor the component to suit your needs.

The two most important things to consider are:

  • The size of the board you need when it's unfolded and ready for play; and
  • What size box you need to fit it into when folded to be put away.

Taking those two things into account, decide on whether you prefer a bi-fold or a quad-fold board, whether you want to print on 1-side or both sides of the board, choose a finish on the printed sides, and select from the sizes available. For more compact board games, you may prefer a bi-fold, whereas long epic adventures may require a large quad-fold board to create an immersive tabletop experience. Read more about our game board options.

When designing your custom board game, you’ll need to select cards of different sizes and shapes depending on what the card is for and how it will be used.

We offer a wide variety of playing card sizes in square or standard rectangular shapes. Whether you wish to print entire card decks for your game, or simply have a few cards act as tokens or markers, our print-on-demand service will be able to meet your needs. Visit our component library to learn more about our varying card shapes and sizes.

We also have the right-sized game box for your custom game board. Your game box can fit your customised components and other accessories. Learn more about our game board options.

The components in your game should match the atmosphere of the game's narrative. Customising your game's components draws your players in, creating an immersive game experience before the first move is even made. Not only can we create custom board game boxes to keep all the pieces in one place, but also other items, such as drawstring bags, to keep the components organised and in good condition within these boxes.

Keep in mind that having specialised pieces for your project will affect production costs and timelines. Learn more about how we can become your custom board game manufacturer for larger orders.

Our custom game cards come in various sizes, from Mini-American and Tarot to Poker and more.

The cardstock options available are 300gsm or 350gsm white core, and 320gsm black core. The weight of the cardstock determines how thick it is – a heavier cardstock is generally thicker than a lighter cardstock.

For a more luxurious play experience, consider upgrading the texture from smooth to linen. All Launch Lab cards are finished with a smooth varnish to ensure they shuffle and play well, and to give them resistance against wear and tear. Learn more about our card options.

Yes, we do. We aim to create games that are accessible to everyone and this includes providing colour options for custom board game accessories such as dice and meeples that work just as well for players with colour-vision deficiency. These colours are clearly marked for you to choose from when creating your game.

If customising these pieces, it's important to make sure that the foreground and background colours can be distinguished from each other. We use and recommend Who Can Use to determine whether the colours selected provide enough contrast for all types of vision.

Apart from your game board and box, you can customise game components and accessories. These include custom names, quantity, size/shape, finish, 1-sided/2-sided printing, and colour. Here is more detail on the customisable options available:

  • Name: The option to give a custom name to a component for easy identification.
  • Quantity: You can select how many components you need.
  • Size/Shape: Options are available for the size and shape of components, such as tokens and dice.
  • Finish: Many textures, and coatings, such as gloss, matte, linen, and smooth are available.
  • 1-Sided/2-Sided Printing: You can customise printed cards and game boards by printing custom art on one or both sides.
  • Colour: Many colour options are available for components like tokens, dice, and meeples.

Options may vary depending on the component type. With our many options, you have the flexibility to create any game from your imagination. Learn more about customisation.
