Quoted from Lonzo:

Alright
Here is a 600 dpi scan of the lower playfield flipper area. I loaded it on dropbox since it is 95mb. I only have the standard account so the link will only work for 7 days. So someone might be able to download it and put it on a permanent site if they want. The scan is just a pure scan and has not been edited at all so you will have to do all of that. The colors are not as vibrant as the ones on the playfield so you will have to color match as necessary.
Here is a picture to show you what area was scanned.

Hope this helps you guys out.

UPDATE!!!!

Ok... I think we have the file scaled out to print... getting a test print this week (I am on vacation over the weekend)

printing from flipper shaft hole to flipper shaft hole... from just under where it says DRY LAND to the bottom of the graphics down the drain... so like the shape of a home plate in baseball...

there will be a hole around SHOOT AGAIN that will be will be a die cut circle so that will light up correctly... and the wear does not seem to affect the insert on any I have seen...

You can trim the decal to your choosing before you apply if you want...

not planning on doing any coating on the decal... I think extending mylar past the edges will help any future wear, so I am going to be cutting my own mylar to put over it and further protect the area... but he can print them with a gloss coating also...

UV stable inks.... blah blah blah...

Looking in the $50 - 60 range for the decals since it will be a small run... and my buddy needs to recoup setup time and costs... I am making nothing on these...

will post next week how it turns out and see who needs them...

#103 12 days ago

here is a quick pic (small) of what will be printed... if your wear is outside of this area.. your playfield is hosed... just kidding... I have not seen any worn beyond this area, and mine is pretty bad...

Got the first decal... Colors are not exact, but close enough I think. Looks better in person. Camera actually exaggerates the difference. Lines up great. I applied it and put Mylar over it. I removed the flipper bats and shafts and the ball guides when I applied it. Decal goes all the way to the drain. Then I cut a slightly larger piece of mylar to put over it. Way better than bare wood that's for sure.

Sticker is super thin so as not to affect the ball in any way. Have to be careful when applying it not to stretch it any. I lined up the top folded back part of the backing and cut it off and worked from the top down to apply it. looks like the cost will be $60. They are UV solvent inks on the sticker. Scan is 600 DPI and matches the playfield well. You will need to mylar over it to protect it, but the rest of the playfield has mylar anyway.

Let me know who is interested. If we can run a bunch I can probably get the price down.

Done. Somehow forgot "i" before "e" except after "c". . .

I would love it if you could just share the file? I can print it on my own, I know someone on this thread scanned the image for you, and gave it to everyone for free. the link they shared has expired and now you want 50 bucks for it?

#112 10 days ago

Awesome, I am in for one, been hoping for this for three years since I got my machine. You did a great job matching it all up, looks great. Hopefully Steve can get them a licence and offer them on the PBR site for all the other people who would need it.

I can share the file when I get back from vacation... No need to get mad at me... You could have downloaded the file too.. If you want to print it yourself go ahead. UV solvent inks on a decal thin enough to not affect the ball... Set up.. Plus wasted materials since it is a small print.. With die cut holes... Unless you own a sign shop.. With setup costs will be more than $50... Most will probably charge more for a single decal... As it wastes several feet of material to print just one... I guess my time is worth nothing... Now I know why I avoided pinside for so long...

Don’t let someone with five posts on Pinside (4 of which are asking for the free image) get you down. The Waterworld thread has a long history of helping each other out and the flipper wear area decal has long been the “grail” for owners. You stepped up and got it done and we appreciate it and look forward to getting it on our machines.

Not upset at all, Was just hoping you could share the original file that was expired because I missed it and didn’t want to pay for it because it was shared amongst this community. If that’s the way you roll, go for it. Don’t sweat it over me, no need to send the file. Peace
