    New Marquee Print Method

    Hey guys, I have another method for printing marquees.

    This is a reverse print onto clear vinyl, then laminated with white. Once that is done we stick it onto the rear of a new piece of perspex. (hope that makes sense!)

    Compared to a standard print onto non-adhesive vinyl (the old method), the contrast and colour richness is improved drastically. Especially when back-lit.

    Plus, when not is use, they look really cool around the games room.

    Here's some pics -







    Prices start at $66.00, that includes the print, new perspex and shipping.

    Cheers!

    They look awesome!

    Sounds like they would be well protected too.

    Would love to see one lit up.

    Sadly I have no use for one as I only have an Astro City. Do you have any marquee prints for the Astro topper ready to go?

    This is how i have done my last 4 cabs and the marquees always look great. They light up great with a $2 led light strip from ebay!

    Would this work for a pinball speaker surround also?

    I know right! Chalk and cheese compared to the non-adhesive type vinyl. Although there is a little more cost with the new perspex that's required.
