I'm on the look out for a sheet of G10 to make some book marks.

Does anyone know where I can get a sheet of G10 from? Preferably a nice light grey colour, about 3mm thick. Or if you have any spare I'd be happy to trade for it.

Thank you.

Does it have to be 3mm? Is it for presents so needs to be high end or just for you? I might have some thinner jade that could suit?
Hi Stew,

I'd like it to be 3mm as I'd like it to be rigid, totally without flex. The finished bookmark will be about 6in long, 1.5in wide and 3mm thick, tapered at one end to about 1mm. Sorry for mixing of in and mm but I'm tired and can't be bothered to do the calcs....

The stuff at GFS is 3.2 mm but is £20 a sheet (140 x 400mm). They only have one grey which is a bit dark.

Don’t worry about the mixing - I do the same all the time!

Im on a late start tomorrow so might see if I can dig the bit out that I have in mind, just in case you think it’ll suit. Might just do some bookmarks myself! :) Won’t 3mm have a fair bit of deflection to the pages?

It may, but the size of books I work with (think heavy, old school inventories) do need something substantial, plus bearing in mind I have a tendancy to use them as a ruler, pointer, page turner and even lean on them at times, it'll need to stand up to rough housing!

I have just ordered from here. At only £12 inc postage, its going to be an affordable mistake if I mess it up.....

If anyone would be interested I'll put up some pictures of the finished product.
