Fathom and centaur apron!

How about classic stern also?

Old Chicago !!
The pink fades SO bad on these.

Stencils will not work.
There is no way to capture the details of the text to make it look right.
Merf and I are making progress!
Here are the film positives to make the screens.

Quoted from jibmums:

please consider making them of a slighter thicker metal,

This would require much more interest to justify getting the license to make these.
At this point we plan to do restorations.

I know stencils would not work with this detail. I would have them professionally printed/screened. I have vector artwork for BOTH Bally aprons already done in perfect vector! The 3 pieces from the 70's titles and the full ribbon stripe for the early 80's games like pictured above.

brenna, is this the same process that was used for TOTAN? Just curious as the TOTAN artwork looked as though it bled.

I'm in for Flash Gordon and Centaur as you get to them.

Brenna98 and I will be posting pictures of our screens and restored aprons over the next few weeks. The film positives are finished and I will be exposing the screens later this week.

Just a heads up on a few old stock Bally apron decals available from an online store in Germany that were made by Pinball Rescue a while ago (who are no longer making them), Only a few listed out of their total stock look like they are the old PR stock, the rest are made by other manufacturers.

I bought a Flash Gordon decal set from them that was made by Pinball Rescue. Sought after decals like Fathom & Centaur are sold out.

PPS sure screwed us on this deal. Pinball rescue made some damn fine products.

I know this is a old post but lets try anyway. I am doing a restoration on a Bally King Rex. I'm trying to find a decal for the apron and ball shooter guide. I know about Pinball Rescue not making them anymore but you would think someone would have solved this problem by now. Bally used this design on a lot of games in the 60"s maybe even into the 70"s. Please let me know if you know who make a good quality decal. Thanks in advance.

Since you want a decal.... your existing apron in decent condition? By this I mean it's not trashed. If you have half decent one you can take it to a local place and they can scan and make one for you. Since you're only doing one or two most places will do it as you're not making quantities to sell them.
