Arkham Horror Card Dividers

I've had some amazing feedback (as well as my first Geekgold ) on my setup for Arkham Horror. I've also had a few requests asking how I did it, what fonts, divider names and so on... so here it is.

I used Microsoft Publisher and created text boxes in the size I needed, specified the font (Powderfinger Type), centred the text, aligned it to the top and hit print. Then I laminated the dividers and cut them out.

Box 1 - The Small Cards
Divider size: 6.7cm x 5cm

Left Column - Less often used cards
Personal Story
Visions of Hypnos
Blessing of Nodens
Beloved of Bast
Magic Effects
Condition Cards
Captain of the White Ship

Middle Column - Often used cards
Blight Cards
Skills - Dunwich
Skills - Kingsport
Spells - Dunwich
Spells - Kingsport
Spells - King in Yellow
Unique Items - Dunwich

Unique Items - King in Yellow

Common Items - Dunwich
Common Items - Kingsport
Common Items - King in Yellow

Box 2 - The Large Cards
Divider Size: 9cm x 6.3cm

Left Column - Location Cards
I've mixed in all the Arkham location cards from all the expansions as I couldn't see any point in separating them, if I ever come across a card that doesn't work due other missing components I'll ignore it and draw another.
Downtown, Arkham
Easttown, Arkham
French Hill, Arkham
Merchant District, Arkham
Miskatonic University, Arkham
Northside, Arkham
Rivertown, Arkham
Southside, Arkham
Uptown, Arkham
Backwoods Country, Dunwich
Blasted Heath, Dunwich
Village Commons, Dunwich
Church Green, Innsmouth
Factory District, Innsmouth
Innsmouth Shore, Innsmouth
Central Hill, Kingsport
Harborside, Kingsport
South Shore, Kingsport

Middle Column - Monster Tokens

Right Column - The rest of the big cards
I have separated the Mythos and Gate cards into expansions since there's enough in the base set and I was worried about... dare I say it... dilution.
Mythos, Dunwich
Mythos, Innsmouth
Mythos, Kingsport
Mythos, King in Yellow
Mythos Cards
Gates, Dunwich
Gates, Innsmouth
Gates, Kingsport
Gates, King in Yellow
Ancient One Plot Cards
Epic Battle Cards
Innsmouth Look
Dunwich Horror
King in Yellow Act Cards

The layout will probably change as I play more games and get more expansions, which is why I don't have any fixed dividers. Speaking of which the box dividers are made out of 4mm foamcore which fit snugly in the box and hold together well without any glue.

So there is all is. The plan is that once a few of the other players have got a game or three under their belts I'll be able to give them a box and say you guys down there are looking after Ancient One cards while you guys over there are looking after Investigator cards which will free me up to look after the flowcharts and rules. Well that's the long term plan anyway.

If anyone is interested in the files here they are (on my 4Shared account until I can get these uploaded to the geek whereupon I'll update these links)
