How Launch Lab works

How Launch Lab works

Print-on-demand (POD) game manufacturing has revolutionised the way designers and publishers get their games into the hands of players. It’s as simple as uploading your game - including box cover design, cards, rulebooks and other components - to Launch Lab, specifying how many copies you need, and placing an order. Launch Lab prints your games and ships them to your door.

With no minimum order quantity required, there’s no barrier to entry for small creators. You no longer need to print thousands of copies of a game, then find somewhere to store them all, and hope they sell. Print-on-demand production enables you to make your game available to players worldwide, as needed. No more risky investment in inventory or mass shipping costs. Take a look at how Launch Lab’s innovative process works.

1. Build

Game components

1. Build

Select the right components for your game from our vast range of quality options. Specify how many of each component you need.

Then choose how you want your game packaged. With a variety of box sizes, shapes, and finishes, you can be sure your game will stand out on the shelf.

2. Customise

Customise everything from components, materials and card stock

2. Customise

You can customise everything from components, materials and card stock: from thin glossy card to thick textured linen; from plastic to metal to wood - the only limit is your imagination.

Import artwork easily with the help of our pre-generated templates and a system capable of warning you on-the-fly of any errors in your files.

Once your artwork is uploaded, apply it to your own components to get a feel for the finished product, and even preview a variety of materials and finishes on your own game. Take the guesswork out of game creation!

For game creators who need a little extra help putting together a PDF that will pass our automated verification, we give you: the PDF Stitcher.

Instead of creating the PDF from scratch, all you need to do is provide the images for your components at the correct size and in the correct quantity, and we'll take care of the assembly.

Frequently asked questions

At the top of your component list page is a Unit Price Estimator button. Click on this to view a price estimate for your project as it currently stands.

Adjusting the number of units to be produced will show the effect of different quantities on the cost per unit. The more units you produce, the lower the cost per unit.

Beneath the Number of units selector are two tabs:

  • Project breakdown: This is a list showing the individual components in your project and the cost associated with each component.
  • Unit cost price breaks: This is a visual way to show where the major price breaks occurs and how this affects the cost per unit.
  • Create an order: At the bottom of your component page, click the ‘Create Order’ button.
  • Name the order: Give your order a name.
  • Select projects: Select which projects you wish to add to your order.
  • Set quantity: Set your quantity of units for each project in your order. A total price indicator will specify the total cost.
  • Select shipping address: Select the address you’d like this order shipped to. You are also able to add and select a different address.
  • Review order: Choose a delivery option for your project from the list provided, then click ‘Complete your order’. You will be required to make payment before your order is sent off to review & production.

Important Notes

  • Only projects including a container/box can be selected.
  • Only projects with artwork that has passed preflight can be selected.

If you wish to proceed with a specific order, you’ll need to follow the Order process, which includes:

  • Confirm quantity & price.
  • Confirm shipping address.
  • Review your order.

Once this is done and if you’re happy to proceed, choose a courier service you’d like to go with.

Click on ‘Complete your order’ and you will be taken off to a secure page to make payment.

Once payment has been finalised, your order will now be active and will be reviewed by a Launch Tabletop representative shortly.

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.
