  • cabinet decals

    does anyone know, or is there anywhere at all that you can get graphics files of cabinet decals such as TZ? They would need to be high res of course. I know a guy that can do this printing for a very good price but just need some files. Is this the problem that stops everyone from doing it themselves??

    I have thought about this a fair bit and what you really need is one of those old hand held scanners, but im not sure that if they make them anymore as i have wanted to scan large documents but havent been able to do it on the regular flat bed scanner.

    The only other option that you have is to remake the art as a vector file, but that would be no easy task.

      Well, i downloaded a file from some link on the pinball newsgroup some time ago. I tried to find the post i got it from but couldnt. I do still have the file though i thought there would be no harm in grabbing it.

      Its got all five pieces [left and ride side cabinet and backbox, front of cab] and is in Corel format so i cant open it to have a look at the quality etc.. most printing places have corel i guess ? It also has a txtfile on how to print them and is about 4meg zipped. I will email it to you if you want it. Same goes for anyone else who wants it.

              so you reckon your file is the same as from that site Neil? BTW thanks for the file!

              do you reckon a file like this would have the detail required for a print job the size of cabinet decals? I suppose that's what they're intended for

                From memory the guy i first got the file from was happy with how they came out on his machine. I dont know anything about corel files but i guess theyd be sweet ? Id say theyd be good quality

                    They lifted my backglass from somewhere! This is my file, I have zoomed in and compared several of the "errors" I put in it so I could tell if it was mine!

                    I only supplied this file at that size to one person and now it is out!!!!!!!!

                      Roughly translated the sites text to:

                      "Hello!!!

                      I research the scans of the two big lateral plastic lefts and lateral right (there or there is the targets or tarjets), and the plastic exchange there or there is a steel marble that it is necessary to type (Number 8)

                      Have you the possibility to carry out these scans???

                      thank-you

                      Tanguy"

                      He's still not happy with your work of art? I feel for you dude, as I know how much time you spent on this backglass.

                        Ummm...

                        Why wouldn't you want to share your work with the world's fellow pinlovers...?

                            Thanks Wotto, it's nice to be able to read the site now! My French is a bit rusty these days
                            Strange that the best site for this is a French site, you'd reckon there'd be lots of American sites with pinball artwork
