Here's a design for the Webway Portal I decided to do.
It is at 300 dpi, which is why it looks so big here. It will be smaller when you print it.
1. Put a few of these on a page and print it out on a nice color printer (it doesn't look nearly as good in greyscale).
2. Then use spray mount (found at a home supply store) to adhere the page to a backing material (I used thin cardboard, got a lot of the stuff laying around).
3. Once the spray mount has fully dried, start cutting out the shape. Cut into the line around the edge and use it as a buffer for any mistakes.
4. Then carefully cut away until the outline is no longer visible. Now the portal is the perfect size and ready to use in your games.

Nice idea Krovin.
I'd just like to say that I'd choose a different card stock. I've just found the thin card dies quite quickly. I'd recommend foamcore as a mounting material. It is thincker and more sturdy so your marker won't get as tatty as quickly.
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
The foam core is certainly a better choice. It's probably easier to cut than cardboard too. If I'd had some when I made my markers, I would have used it.
That said, my cardboard markers have actually aged quite well for the 3-4 months that I've been using them. They haven't warped at all, and they don't really get in a situation where they can become damaged.
get it laminated at a copy center with 10mil laminate, should cost about 2 bucks to have them do this. just make sure you cut it out before hand and when you trim away the extra laminate dont break the seal (it'll look like a thin air pocket around the edge of the paper) also you're paying for 1 sheet of laminate so as many as you can fit in 8 1/2" x 11" and it still costs the same (for back ups)
they also have high quality color laser printers at these places and it'll cost about 50 cents to have them print it (doesnt need to be on anything thicker than paper because you're laminating it with a thick laminate anyway)
all of this would give you something VERY durable and long lasting and quite rigid but still cost less than the bottle of spray adhesive alone.

A great idea to create an original webway portal! Still, I'll keep on using the vortex grenade template from Apocalypse.
