Custom Screen Templates

If you’re looking to create a custom board game, you’ll first want to prototype and playtest your game – and a great way to start that process is by using some of our custom board game templates, like these screen templates.

Our board game screens are made using a similar process as the cover for a casebound book. We cut sheets of high-density paperboard and then wrap them with a printed, finished parent sheet. In order to produce a hinge, we use a gluing and folding process to create a neat seam.

Our custom screens come in either two or three panels. A two-panel board game screen has one fold (hinge) and is comparable to that of opening a hardcover book. Three-panel screens are produced as a long rectangle then molded into two outer panels that fold inwards toward the center panel. Two-panel screens are a common option and work very well. If you have a larger area that you need to cover it or the game allows several players to play, a three-panel screen may be the better choice.

Here, you’ll find all the templates you need to make a demo version of the screens in your game. You can design your artwork to fit our custom screen templates, and then print out the templates at your local copy shop for a simple and cost-effective way of playtesting your game.

Further along in the process? You’ll want to utilize these templates while creating your artwork for your game.
