Also, I've got another set of unused CPR's that I'll sell cheap..I bought them for my machine and didn't use them.

My CPR plastic set doesn’t match my original playfield either. The clear protective coating is still on and I just laid the plastics in place over the originals. I was hoping CPR set would work with the Mirco playfield. Some of the pictures of the Micro playfield look like they would match but I know pictures can be deceiving. I will probably order a set from Mirco with the playfield just to be safe.

I use the exact same color mix on the printer for the plastics and the playfield. But due to the digital print, yes the color might look weaker than a screen print. Unlit plastics and playfield have the exact same color.

I could possibly print two layers of cmyk before white is printed but that would change the color unlit into darker versions.

This is the limit of digital print... screen is simply too expensive and that why not worth the effort in that small batches.

Mirco

+1 to the two layers. Lit color is more important than unlit, IMO.

Yah, you can't really do this if the plastics are going to be lit up from behind. Light will affect this greatly. 2 layers may help, but may also need more than that.

+3 on the two layers. Agreed that lit is more important than unlit.

It basically needs screen printing to reproduce it right. CMYK is too limited. We're finding the hard edges of digital printing. It's not a cure-all.

Hah, yeah, let's never be happy.
I say nice job.
Mirco plastics on Mirco pf.
Done.

I have come to the realization that when dealing with repro parts that it is a dreamer's game to think the repro is going to match the OG by 100%. Each repro is going have its flaw (s).

I have learned to not expect a 100% perfect repro. Mistakes are made in any line of work. If it is not a gross error, I'm just going to accept it and travel on. We are all in the same boat. We all are aware of the same inaccuracies.

Try 2 hits of color & 2 hits of white for plastics. Many years ago Rick @ PPS said this was the best way for glass production & only 1 hit for blocking. I keep saying the old 11+ year Canon Oce Arizona uv inkjet printer had no real problems with the ink & water based gloss interior Varethane. Took finish clear alright as long as you could not smell the ink or the finish clear coat process was not rushed. CPR does not disclose what printer they are using along with MIrco. Maybe if these guys would disclose that info we could guide them when they have problems. People just want decent quality pinball products.

Colors are all over the place with original pinball production. It was not a big deal back in the day.

If you have the ability to print 1/2 density on the "second" pass of color, people have reported that as the sweet spot for reproducing using digital printing. So a color layer, then 1/2 density of color, then single white. Depending on printer, this may look better than doing color 2X. Mac

Hi Mac, thx, I will give it a try as soon as I have some room on the printer...
