any white material can use to make bounce card, you can even use hard paper.
a art material store call Art Friends, located at 3rd floor of Bras Basah Complex, selling some material is able to make bounce card, all you need is white rigid plastic sheet, and some velco tape.

Hope this helps.

Yup, I bought those white plastic and made my own bounce card. Can be used for custom white balance setting too. And the best thing is, you can make it into any size you need. Spoil, just make another one...;) Of couse, I mostly still use the SB-800 diffuser...;)

I found it impossible to buy a grey card a few months back. Plus lots of shop asssistants laughed at me;)

By chance bought a National Geographic photography book which has 18% grey at the front. Then I simply bought some material in the same shade! The advantage to this is that you leave the material knocking about ur bag without the worry of damaging the card.

Alternatively you can print a sheet of paper coloured with 18% grey.

Saying that, I managed to buy a card when I was in the UK and .... haven't even used it yet!

Another cheap option for setting white balance is to use the top of a pringles cap!

Good luck experimenting
