Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

Hey artists,

I know most of you work with paper, but vinyl is a really close cousin of what we're doing.

Does anyone know how to go about casting and producing 200-300 copies of a vinyl toy?

If someone could point me the right way...

I got no idea about vinyl toys, but just stumbled over this one:
Maybe check out the link list they have...
Thanks for your help:) Ill check around more.
theres a uk magazine called computer arts, they did a toy special a few months back.
they gave away a free toy on the cover by "tado"
It also had an article on how tado went about producing it.

don't know if this would be any use to you,
if you think it may be, i'll scan it in for you.
but don't tell anyone ;)
Hey man that would seriously be very useful!

Could you do it for me and send it to my mail account?

Thanks man, for going out of the way. Really appreciate it.
.... and if your not out of digital stamps... Perhaps you could send it to me too?

I got it man. Thanks alot. Really appreciate that you went out of the way bro.
yep, got it 2. thx man
thanks that was incitefull
This company does small runs of vinyl toys.
Vinyl is tough because it is expensive and the plastic is spun to get the hollow effect. Also the fumes in production can cause cancer. I have talked with a few companies. They all say the best thing is to know how to sculpt. Also if you are not a super well known artist they will not produce your toy. The best thing is to do it yourself, They recommened going in with a few people to get enough money to have it made. I have worked in the toy industry off and on for 10 years. You pretty much have to do it yourself.

Thanks Macula :) I will bear your words in mind.

Yes, indeed capital is important. May I ask, how much am I looking at for a batch of 200 toys approx 12 cm tall?
