Over the years I've done a handful of cards for games, usually linked them in club threads or part of my own project threads. Most of those links are broken now because Dropbox changed their public links, but people still ask me about them, so I wanted a single home for them all.

These are just for fun, some of the art is original, some if it is just taken from searches and other artists, I make no claim to any of the stuff that's not mine, just something to print and put on your personal games. These are PDFs, sized to 8x10. This should allow you to print on a home printer on nice paper at 100% scaling and get perfectly sized cards, and they should in theory be the right size to get done as 8x10 photo prints somewhere too if you don't have a printer.

If I end up doing any others I'll try and remember to put them here, not looking to take requests, sorry, just sharing what I already have for anyone who wants them.

Would love to see you do something for IMDN LE!! ...and METLE!!

The above stuff is awesome!! Will use those Tron ones for sure. Nice work.

I have custom cards on my Metallica, but not sharing them now, because they've got art on them that's part of something I haven't shown yet.

Looks great

Pitty the ACDC one is only With the alternative Helen Translite look. Having a regular premium this doesn’t really fit the pinball

Anyway, great work. You are a true artist.

Thanks Rensh, I dunno about all that, I fake it till I make it mostly. The cards were designed to go with the Helen package, just happy to give them away for free to anyone who wants them. The jukebox side could be combined with something else and I wouldn't take offense.

Thanks, just doing my part to share.

Quoted from onemoresean:

It's not.

I really just lost all my momentum on it, and I'm struggling to get it back. I got some parts laser cut for the prototype a few months ago, and they weren't quite right, and I just didn't feel like spending another $60 and waiting 2 weeks to make a little minor fix to make things fit right.

So right now I'm looking at laser cutters. Rather spend a few thousand dollars on my own tool so I can iterate at my own speed. Like if I need to cut 10 different versions to test an idea, making a little tweak each time, right now that means $600 in cost, but more importantly, potentially like 3 months of back and forth waiting for the mail etc. That's just a creativity killer.

Even if I find a local shop, and I think there is one, it's just kind of a drag. I want to be able to fail faster, and try things, and not worry about them not working, or not worry about doing it 5 more times to get it right, or changing my entire approach half way through.

I've honestly redesigned the main light show aspect of this mod from scratch at least 4 times now, just trying ideas, and I'm running into the lack of tools to be able to play like that.

So long story short, who knows what the heck will happen, this is why I've never announced anything besides little teases, because it might change again, it might never come out because I suck. Better to not over promise. Meantime, I've been learning a lot about lasers.

Guessing it's a custom lasercut apron for Metallica? Whatever it is hope you get it finished someday. I'd really like to see your custom Metallica cards.

Nope! Thing about aprons is they're structural, people use them to lift the playfield, that's not something I'd want to mess with. Too many chances of things breaking or something.

Good guess with my apron card comment, but they're just using some art I did for the mod, be weird to show them is all. They're Metallica related, but more of a song reference, no rules or anything.

Let us know what you go with. I trust your judgment and have also been toying with the idea of dropping some $$ on a laser cutter. I realize I'd never get my investment back, but I also have a few ideas over the years where I'd like to just cut something out quickly.

Is there any chance you have cards for a Bally paragon?

Right now the plan is to get a Chinese red and black clone, and then invest in upgrading the parts. They come with shit power supplies, and crummy wiring etc. But if you put a little money and effort in cleaning that stuff up you can get a large cutting bed for way cheaper than any other path. I can't justify spending 10 grand on a laser, I'm not a business like that, but a few thousand? I can do enough modding with it to make it pay for itself.

Sorry nope, this is kind of a what you see is what you get thread, just wanted a place to put things I did to make them easy for people to find as needed. Any time this thread is bumped you can bet someone asked me for a link to a card they know I did, I sent them here, and then they kindly reply to make it visible again.
