    I wondering if anyone has a good idea for creating a durable, inexpensive and permanent patterning board. It would be used for patterning about 100 - 150 kids each season.
    Paper is so slow and the cardboard backer gets torn to shreds too quickly.

    Thanks for the suggestions... you folks have never steered me wrong,

    Owning a construction company, I've always have 1 by stuff around. I simply build a 40" square frame out of 1x3's or 4' s. The ones at my farm have been up and in the weather for over two years now.

    Your choices are paper, cardboard, or steel plate, painted with white gease, or spray paint. We built a 2x4 frame and covered the face of it with Trex decking material. Then put clips at the top to hold paper or cardboard. The Trex has held up to hundreds of shots, and keeps the paper from blowing in the wind. We also had a metal plate, but took it down as no one was using it. Mark
