Our inserts are made from sheets of Evacore - an EVA memory foam to which quality printed card is laminated to add rigidity. The card itself has an extremely thin mat laminate clear foil applied to the printed side to increase durability and to give a strong bond with the PVA glue needed for assembly.
The Evacore sheets are cut using die-cutting to give a precision cut as per our insert design. Because the material expands once the mold blades are removed after cutting in the press, the tray pieces stay inside the sheet frame. Therefore, there is no need for any connection points from the piece to the frame, and prior to assembly you simply pop them out with no additional cutting necessary.
Evacore has many superior qualities to foam-core (foam-board). We have prepared a video comparing the two materials:
The final product consists of a number of pre-cut Evacore sheets, together with detailed assembly instructions. On average a four sheet insert, such as FS-ELD compatible with Eldritch Horror® pictured here, weighs roughly 250g once removed from the packaging and fully assembled. This means it adds very little weight to the game, making Folded Space inserts ideal for transporting to a friend’s place or to the club.
