Cheap Foam for cases

Lots of nice options for pluck foam. At least half as costly as anywhere else. I will post more next week when my shipment comes in about quality etc. ;)

Just the other day. Not as high quality as some others I've used, but for the price cant be beaten. ;)

Here's what my new case looks like (Needs a little more TLC yet):

Thanks for the quick answer. :)

Do you like them? What size did you get? And what kind of case are you using?


I have a Sabol soft case right now and a bunch of Sabol trays, but I'm thinking about how to get my army to Gencon, and seriously considering getting a new hardcase and new set of trays.

I got the 24X26X1" foam. 6 sheets which ended up being a bit more then I needed, lol. But hey i will likely use it down the road etc. And yes I like them very much. For a bottom I'm gluing on the 1/8" foam sheets you can find at Walmart crafts

The case is something I found at a Trader Horn, not sure where your from so you probably don't know what that is lol.

Got the bottoms glued on, super glue works wonders :D

Now to finish scraping the edge foam out of the case....

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't know this stuff existed :)

I found a UK supplier and placed an order which should arrive in the next few days, but looks like the exact same stuff.
