Quoted from Richthofen:

Those photoshop files are of incredible value. It would be nice to build a database of artwork files (cabinet stencils, playfields, plastics) and host it somewhere on the internet so people could get them printed themselves.

There used to be a web site called "balls of steel" that had scans of a lot of pinball artwork, mainly plastics if I remember correctly.

It was shut down due to copyright issues. I believe that it was Wayne's lawyers that caused the guy to get pissed off, so he took down the scans on the site. Though the scans conceivably still exist somewhere.

Perhaps someone from RGP can chime in with more info.

PS: Somehow I cant get the entire RGP url to be an url...you'll have to copy and paste into your browser.

The balls of steel site had individual scans of plastics, at 600 dpi, done flat and square.

Not exactly what you can find other places.

Quoted from northvibe:

300dpi minimum, yea? but we could scan higher without issue?

The file gets quite large @ 600 dpi, and the added dots may not be much higher resolution after printing.

Best to try both and see if there is a difference after printing.

Quoted from RDM:

Would it be possible to take a series of pictures and stitch them together?

Yes, that would work too, but there is a good chance of the graphic being distorted.
