Fleece Dirt Roads

To accompany my fleece grassland mat, I followed a similar procedure to create these dirt roads. I photoshopped a set of images from Wargame Vault and had them printed on a 50″ x 60″ fleece blanket using Walmart Photo. After cutting them out I ended up with 36 pieces 3.5″ wide, totalling ~ 24′. The downsides are the lack of texture and the white fleece showing on the sides, however I’m willing to put up with those small shortcomings for the cost effectiveness and the flexibility. They also look great in context with other terrain on the board.

    They do look great. Never though of printing terrain features on fleece. How well does the print adhere to the fleece, that is could you rubb the toner (?) off or did it ‘soak’ into the material?

    Thank you. I don’t think there’s any fear of the ink coming off. It has permeated the fleece enough that you could wash it if necessary. If you like, I could send you a sample piece.
