I can't believe there are no Iron Maiden cards as long as it has been out and as popular as it is! Jonesin!

I own a Foo Fighters (Pro) but liked how the apron sticker on the Premium/LE looked so I made a rule card for the right side of the pro to match the amp graphic from the bigger brothers. Right size should be 5.5"x 3" but I made this slightly larger so you could trim the red edge to fit as needed as different paper types worked differently for me (cardstock vs normal paper).

I don't have a color printer. Does anyone know of a printing service where I can get some of these instruction cards printed?
Thank you.

Thank you.

If you are willing to pay $12 per pair for photo quality cards printed on OEM ultragloss photo paper using OEM inks then coated with clear gloss vinyl, then I'm your man. You can choose from any of the cards I offer or I'm happy to do any other available design from this thread or other sources.

Please PM to discuss. I know this thread is for posting free cards only, but since you asked I wanted to at least make you aware.

I've been printing all mine at my local FedEx office (formerly Kinkos), but found that OfficeMax also does a terrific job too. I use heavy card stock, and they will resize the image if it's not spot-on already.

I've only done cards for my own games, and keep the files in Word documents, so they are easily edited before printing. I've used a bunch of art that I've already found online, but now I'm veering into creating my own designs, which I think I've posted on this thread. Fathom, Strikes and Spares, Skateball, and Flash Gordon among them.

Thanks. I found this afternoon that I can get Staples to produce them on glossy photo paper, with next day turnaround for a very decent price. I am going to try them. If I don't like what is produced, I will get back to you.

I’ve tried glossy photo paper too, at an offsite printer, but find the results on matte card stock superior, and the ink itself will produce somewhat of a gloss. Mostly things with a fine print (think instructions) just come out better if it’s not on glossy stock. Maybe try it on both and see what ya think. Their printing services are VERY inexpensive! Good luck.

CVS does it for 49 cents.

The key is to size them correctly before printing, as often times the cards posted here in the thread aren't quite correct for various reasons. Just save the files, measure your existing cards, then make sure the digital files are scaled accordingly. If you provide PDF files for printing, then make sure when they print they select "actual size" in the PDF print dialog.

Lighten up people.

I didn't advertise any cards or share images of any cards I make. Rather, I just offered to produce a quality set of cards for someone who asked since he doesn't possess the equipment to do so himself.

Most of us get it. Seems only one was bent out of shape about it.

No worries.

My "lighten up" phrase was mainly tongue in cheek, although my explanation was valid. Punkin and I have known each other for sometime through Pinside, and I always assume his just giving me a hard time. If he's actually being seriously critical, then he's certainly entitled to do so and no hard feelings on my end.

Yep we get on mostly for sure. You can still be friends with someone and not agree with everything they do.

We differ on the issue of making money on someone else's work when they specifically create that work for free is all.

Mr T get's it sometimes, but seems to forget sometimes too.

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Even though I sell pinball cards, I concur with others regarding this particular thread. The intent here is to openly share cards for everyone/anyone to print on their own without cost, and to refrain from redirecting and/or advertising cards for purchase. Personally, I've made the mistake myself in the past and self-corrected. Still doesn't mean you can't comment or offer suggestions in this thread, but there are other places/ways to display and sell apron cards.

Well stated, @punkin, and I appreciate your perspective.

Like it's been said, if we always agree on everything, then one of us is unnecessary.
