Printer Optional- You can print out using a local printing service 
When choosing a printer, decide if you'd like to use card stock, you will need a rear feed printer if so.  This printer is rear reed and can take tabloid paper, so you can print large inserts in one piece.
Copy Paper or  65 Pound Cardstock or 110 Pound Card Stock It's your preference on which you prefer 
Paper Cutter Use for cutting playing cards easily 
Laminator Optional- We are geared to keep play moving. You may not need to keep the inserts after they've been played with. Or you may choose to preserve them for future play and younger children. Day cares and preschools should consider laminating due to volume of children playing. 
Wide Format Laminator This is the best one I have found that is still in the affordable range for personal use. 
Rubber Cement  or Restickable Tabs for sticking inserts to support boards or into the doll house 
Self Healing Mat with Cutting Knife I use this after I laminate to cut out the holes, mouths and slots.
Removable Sticker Paper You can print your play rounds, or tiles on this instead of using Avery labels and hand cut them. This paper easily removes from your wood pieces when you're ready to change out the set! Make sure your sticker paper is removable like this or you will not be able to get them off.
