The best way to get wonderfully printed cardboard pyramids would be to have
them Litho Laminated.  This is a process where they print the nice design
that you want and then glue it to the cardboard.  It can be VERY nicely
done.  The reverse side doesn't need to be brown either.  It could be white.
I work with Litho Laminated sheets all day long.  I have seen some kewl
things done in the past.  Depending on the quantities that we are talking
about it could be reasonably affordable.  They could even be done in a
glossy white instead of a dull white if you were thinking about generic
pyramids.  The glossy white looks better when drawn on or painted.


Never say that being negative is anti-love. We only want to change the
things you have grown fond of.
I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective
judgement in all human affairs.
If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in
a garage makes you a car.
Eishaus players don't take turns.
There is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".....
