I am contemplating redoing the theme on a newer Stern pro. I have access to a second playfield so everything can be reverted back to original if need. The question I have is how to go about designing the artwork so that it aligns with the inserts and holes. I am starting with Xmen and I am interested if anyone has a good idea for making a template that will match up to the fresh playfield. My hope is to be able to sand off the original art on the 2nd playfield and then screen or print the new art on top but I want the new art to fit perfectly. I have the Adobe Suite but I would love to work in photoshop if possible. Any thoughts or advice are welcome.

Get the empty playfield scanned on a large format CRUISE Scanner.

Every major city has one.

Nice thank you. Where would I look for one of these print shops?

Call a poster printing shop.

Ask if they have a Cruise Scanner.

If they don't, ask locally who does.


Cruise used to have a finder on their website, but once they got too big, the finder went away. Maybe they would help you on the phone?

Thanks vid! I'll look into that.
