Are you making components for a tabletop game?  Is it one of your own 
design?

I've begun designing games here myself as something to do that takes me 
away from the computer now and then.  Modern tabletop games are 
fascinating systems; sometimes intricate like software, but laid bare in 
cardboard.

I'm not sure I'm imagining this accurately.  Do you have a sketch or a 
mockup with numbered boxes you could point me to to see what you're 
output is like?

And are you printing multiple individual cards into a page, or have one 
page-sized card with multiple card images?
