    Question D.I.Y bounce-card: What material to use?

    Hey guys, wanted to make a bounce-card for my flash. What kind of material to use? Must it be glossy/laminated or must be matte surface?

    Thanks!

    Try those corrugated white plastic sheets that you can get in Popular book stores - stiff and light.

    Anybody has the dimensions? Roughly for a piece @ popular? Think quite big, will need to share.

    I used a white cardboard and laminate it.

    Ok, thanks.

    Normally you guys cut your bouncecard into what dimension? How big should it be?

    You laminate it just to harden your bouncecard or will the flash quality be affected?

    i use those old plastic video covers for video tapes... pref the white ones. they're usually nice and stiff and the size is about right.

    I buy a huge piece of cardboard $4 available from most big stationery shops.

    It's matt white on 1 side and yellow on the other side. This gives me the flexibility to use either side to obtain a normal flash or warmer effect.

    I cut the cardboard to size with lots to spare.
