iomnigel perhaps it’s not the cheapest but maybe contact your local printer and ask for a quote, then you can get exactly what you want printed/size wise and a really good job done instead of just a home bodge like above, lol.
Other than that perhaps try getting some extremely thick craft board (400 micron sorta stuff) and laminating it for longevity…Posted 5 years agoflimsyMember
Ran a couple of DH races with my club, got silly quotes from printers.
We done our design and created 1-200 individual files and had them printed as photos then laminated them. Worked very well, worked out very very cheap. Just time consuming but between three of us laminating, trimming and hole punching we had em done in a few hours.Posted 5 years agozilog6128Subscriber

Laminated card works well enough for one day and you can forget about having to gather them back.
If you do want something re-usable (which means getting it back after) look for a local printer that can do thin plastic.
alternatively do them all by hand, 200 won’t take a couple of you with permanent markers or spray paint and number templates that long…
Oh and make sure whatever you do you run off some blank spares and have a marker ready for a bodged board, there’s always one…
As for having the timing tags I’d say mounting them down in the BB area rather than up at bar level backed onto a number board would be best (IPICO are the ones that use proximity to an antena mat right?) mounting them too high is a recipe for timing malfunctions IME….Posted 5 years agohelsMember
Another vote for CCA Signs. He does ours for Enduros etc, we use them again for kids races they seem to last a while. email@example.com for a quote. Crawfy is very reliable !
Also, might be worth asking a BC Commissaire if you are insuring via BC, but I think there may be some rule about attaching things to number boards….Posted 5 years ago
