Thank you. Mine were painted white on the bottom already but that would be a killer idea otherwise. I am not sure where they were purchased. A lot of my gaming bits are pieces of trash tile and whatnot from construction sites I work at and this happend to be a lone 12x12 sheet going into the trash.

That is a good idea too. I tried using a very fine sharpie as suggested above and it worked really well.

You can get them in all sorts of colors or patterns, too. Match the theme or setting for your game, color-code the good guys and bad guys, and so on.
Thanks! They come in many varieties indeed. I have some textured translucent blue ones that I use for water. I also have some megahexes I got out of some sheets of 1" hexagon tile.
