Ok so I'm gearing up for bumper builds and I really want to make a paper template. What do yall use as the paper I looked at poster boards and they seem too thin and flimsy.

Cardboard. Foam board works well too but is obviously more expensive.

We use alllll those empty beer boxes! Man if I had a buck for every tab, gusset, or bracket I've built from a beer box template I'd have about 8 bucks..

I use what I have laying around cardboard, beer box, soda box. Cardboard is stiffer but also a bit harder to work with without some scissors to cut and an utility knife dont work so well for cutting some times.

I used the flimsy poster board. You need to cut your peice an inch wider then you want and then fold that inch at a 90 deg creating a peice of angle iron essentially. Worked great and cost a total of 3$ for 6 poster boards. I agree with the beer boxes though. Those work the best due to the enjoyment of its contents.
