Default Chipboard Coasters for calendars

I am wanting to make some calendars with Chipboard Coasters but have no idea where to purchase the coasters. Can someone please provide a source for them? Or sources. Appreciate the help.

Also if you have made a chipboard calendar (I want to make a separate page per month) did you use 12 coasters--or 13 for a cover--or do 7 pages and then flip it to the back. Just wondering which works best. And what type of chipboard do I want to use--lightweight, medium or heavy. And anything else I need to know.

Oh wow---thanks for the link. Only problem is what am I going to do with 1,000 coasters? Guess what everyone will be receiving for Christmas for the rest of their lives......coaster calendars.

What weight should I order---was thinking of ordering the Medium Weight---not to thin and not too thick.

Katz Americas | Wholesale Blank Coasters for Printing: Ordering - Order Blanks

Only $22.50 for 1,000 plus shipping---what a deal really. Just have to make about 80 calendars to use them all if I do 12 pages and less if I do covers too. Happy crafting to me!

i get the medium weight...
I make boxes out of them...punch 3 holes down each side and use ribbon to thread through like a sneaker. can put cookies, small gift etc inside.
I also make post it note holders with them. I think there is a pic in my gallery. Binder clip and matching pen. You will find tons of uses for them once you have them

I just made a 2011 calendar, and though I bought coasters, I found even the medium to be too thick. I mounted my calendar pages to Paper Trey Ink cardstock. Each page turned out plenty "think" and really sturdy. You can see complete details with lots of photos here. I hope you find it helpful!
