I just used the pinballdecals.eu for my tz restore - https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/twilight-zone-restoration-1

I'm very happy with them. The biggest difference between them and the classic arcades decals is the gloss level imo. The ones from pinballdecals.eu are super glossy, and the ones from classic arcades are more of a satin finish.

I at least know that for sure with the tz decals. I bought a set of the next gen decals, and had to sell them immediately because the gloss level wasn't quite what i was looking for.

Definitely were not screened. The only ones that I'm aware of that were screened were the phoenix arcade ones that are no longer available.

I've actually got a set of Diner and Whirlwind Next Gen 2 decals in my basement that I just looked at for reference. A buddy told me the Next Gen process was essentially like screen printing, but with Ink, one layer at a time - I think he is right, as the colors seem to have different depths - they were printed one on top of the other. The colors look good on both, but you can see the printer lines if you look closely on the Next Gen stuff. The Pinballdecals.eu decals do not have the depth with each color, but also have no traces of being printed one line at a time. I'm no expert on either, I just know what I can see.

Hope that helps a bit

Sorry, I keep thinking of more stuff ... I'm in the US, so it takes a month at least for the pinballdecals stuff to arrive, which is a definite drawback, but in the US, I think they cost me $214 USD, while the Next Gen stuff was $265 USD

I like the fake screened feel of next gen, but pinballdecals.eu are much better looking imo. I would totally recommend them
