Love thses cards. I can't get the size right on my printer. I followed the instructions but they always are too small.

In windows, what program are you using?

Make sure the printer setup has no scaling. Better yet, download the 4x6 version and have it printed at your local Walgreens or Sam's. Sam's charges me 13 cents per print and their printer is a heck of a lot better than anything I can afford.

Funny, I do all the settings, but it's small. I've got a really nice color laser printer and glossy card stock to print on.

Painting these things is my nemesis.

I've always had the best luck printing pictures in Microsoft Publisher. You insert the picture into a blank 8 1/2 x 11 publication and size the pictures with the built in rulers.

Hey everyone, can you tell me if there's a work around for printing these rule cards if they're not fitting the apron slots? I tried printing the Class of 1812 cards and they're each just a little too small. Any way I can expand them to fit without compromising quality? I'm certain I selected 100% on the printer scale and 'scale to fit' was not selected as well.

I reached out to Chad about it and awaiting his response. Just didn't know if this is something I can fix without bothering him on resizing the entire card.

I want to send these off to FedEx soon, as my 1812 overhaul is in it's final stages.

Thanks guy! And thank you Chad for such awesome art. Great work...

Laminate the cards, then cut to the correct size.

You know, I guess I could just do that. It's better than nothing right now.

Anyone hear from Chad lately and is he still doing custom cards?

Thanks for the suggestion!

Quoted from chadsugg:

This was a bit difficult for my design style because it's even more retro a wacky than I'm used to, but here's Class of 1812. Hope you like it!

Hey Chad, any chance you can offer some advice for printing these Class of 1812 cards? I set my scale to 100% and make sure my 'Scale to Fit' is not selected, but I keep getting them to print too small for the tray. Attached is a picture of my printer settings that I was going to use as a test to check sizing before sending off to FedEx for a second time.

I had these printed at FedEx as a test recently on thick stock paper and hi-def color, but the rep there tried to resize it to the specs of my 1812 tray and it made the image blurry... I'm going to soon settle for the previous advice of printing it smaller, laminating each piece, then cut to size. I'm trying to avoid this as all my other ones from PinballBoy look perfect at the correct sizes and would make these look funny.

I'm happy to send in donation money ahead of time if that'll help at all, but I wanted to touch base first. I've sent an email to each of the addresses on file on your site weeks ago, but nothing.

My game is finished and my trays are empty just waiting to be filled with this amazing art. Please help!

These are very nice the ones already on the site.

I know there's a few gottliebs but there's a bunch of us who want Tee'd Off cards!

#561 8 months ago

They look great - how about a #Twilight Zone! I don't see it there and I'm sure it will come out great.

#562 8 months ago

Well, Chad hasn't been here for five months. I think what is available now is probably all we are going to see.

That makes me sad....

#564 8 months ago

Well, I went ahead and had FedEx whip me up a copy of these regardless of them being sized wrong. I'll try to throw my card covers over them and hope they stay in place.

I also had FedEx print, cut and laminate each piece so I can cut to size and stick them in that way...

Would love to have them be 100% right, but this is way better than nothing, or even the old cruddy cards.

Wow, has it really been 10 months since my last update?

My apologies - in my last update, I thought I was going to get to start working on the site + new cards in January... WOW, was I wrong.

As I'm sure you all know, life seems to just sort of happen, and sometimes you've gotta put other things first. All is well in my world, but my year has turned out 100x busier personally and professionally than I originally even imagined for this year alone.

All that said, I just wanted to make it very clear that I still absolutely will be eventually updating the site with new cards and all that good stuff. The time to make that happen just hasn't presented itself yet.

Hope you're all well!

Glad your doing well! And the pinball world will be better off when you return. Best cards and creativity around!

I haven't nailed down an exact date yet, but I can say this is a definite...
In January 2018 I'll be launching PinballBoy.com VERSION 2.0!!!

V2.0 will feature a revamped site, new cards, + more good stuff!

For now, here's a little holiday gift for you all - my first new set of rule cards I've designed/shared in at least a YEAR. Stern's Ghostbusters - I wanted to do something that represented the awesome Real Ghostbusters cartoon and toys from the 80s. So here ya go!

(P.S. - With this image below you get to see a sneak peak feature from the upcoming new site - realistic mockups of what your cards will look like when you print them!)

Looks awesome man and congratulations on upgrading the operation. Very much looking forward to it and do not mind supporting in any way. Your work is excellent.

Would love to see if my posts above (#559 & #564) on the Class of 1812 pics is my bad or the file just needs a resizing. No rush whatsoever!

Happy holidays and happy new year!

Yes! I'm in the middle of a restoration and can't find anything better than the originals, sadly.

Incredible site. Lots of love for underrepresented titles.
