    What do you guys use? I need waterproof/resistant pen pattern paper. Found some Freezer paper and some Poly Coated Kraft paper at U-Line. Do these work well for pen patterns? Any other options out there?

    Why not just laminate after you make the pattern?

    Putting some letters under a dock? Being water-proof has never been an issue for us.

    Latex saturated paper. It might be thicker than you're looking for, but it stands up to moisture & water quite well.

    Where can I get my hands on some of this latex paper?

    I've never had a problem with it either. Until now. I think it might be a problem more with the ink just bleeding. Don't know why for sure. I'm just doing the legwork.

    You might want to look at Tyvek.

    Advantage Sign Supply carries it. I think it starts off as an Oce product and gets relabeled. I'm not sure who manufactures it.

    Any lumberyard carries tyvek. Or, Talk to a contractor, they may have strips the size you need cheap.
