    Default Material for making practice mats?

    What is a good material to use for making practice mats? Ideally, it would be something that black tape would stick to, so it could be configured for various training missions.

    The material for this years mat feels like wallpaper. That might work.

    I use a graphic design company that prints vinyl signs to print the Deep Space Terraformers mats. They use a vinyl sheet similar to the vinyl FLL mats.

    You could ask a banner or sign company if they have any extra material from the end of a roll they could donate to you.
