  • Help with backglass

    I've had a look around my local print shops and no here can help me. I want to get the backglass image of Lost World reprinted so I can replace mine. Can anyone suggest a quality print place and what would be the best medium have it printed on.

    which lost word do you have?

    Escape from Lost World the backglass (bally) or is it a Translite - like Jurass Park Lost world?

        Thanks for that

        two questions:

        How bad is the current glass? - if not too bad, I would recommend sealing it with triple thick and keepin git for now

        Do you want to sell the game ever? - if you do, a repalcmeent glass will not help value (although you can always put back the old glass)

        To get printing on lightbox acrylic, I have previously been quoted between $170 - $250 by kinkos (not the best place I know but I was checking out prices)

        Personally I woud look to find another in the US or Aust - there are still some BG stocks around, you just need to do some digging.

        It will look better and increase the game value and I would say the difference between getting a replacement and making up a new one will be around $100

          Sealing is not an option as there is basically nothing left to seal. Translite material must be available in OZ as bumper sell repro's all the time, I just need to find out who does them and I'd like to keep this pin.

            Why not ask Darksoul - see what he has done?

              nice site. The repro's look good.

              But I agree look for an original first.

                I asked Darksoul about his Superman glass. He got it printed at Signorama. They print directly onto glass in 3 layers for about $150. The process sounds awesome.

                  Man- those Signarama guys vary wildly !! I got quoted by Signarama at Miranda in NSW $85.00 just for an overlay sticker for my Bally paragon apron, yet he can get a 3 layer backglass printed for $150.00 !!

                  Man - they must see me comin hey !
