    Sep 7, 2009, 3:44 PM - My first mando #1

    So, I'm going to be making my twin brother and myself some custom mando armor YAY.

    But i've already hit my first hic-up... today i brought the card I needed but its too thick, I have a H.P deskjet F4180 and each time I put the card in the print the pep templates (Skip's - he's the man) I keep getting a error message saying theres a paper jam.

    So right now I'm a little stressed out because tommorow I have to go out and buy some thinner card. (FYI the card says its 250gsm what ever that means :/) if anyone has any way of getting my printer to print card before I go to the shop to get more card I will give them a knight hood (i cant but il try)

    well the easiest way to do this is to print them out on normal paper, cut them out and stick them to the card You will still end up with the same result and you can even take off the paper templates after they've been traced onto the card.

    And you will then have templates to make the second set
