Id ask where my STNG is... but I already know what the answer is.
Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:
And that is by far the biggest problem with making these cabinets...getting the colors correct. The art files we used came from Rick at PPS. The problem is, the colors his printer prints are not going to be the same colors my printer's printer prints. In order to get them correct, my printer would literally have to spend hours and hours adjusting the color levels on his machine to get them right. In this case, he spent about four and I told him that has to be close enough. The amount of money I'd have to pay him to correct them is just not worth it.
Having said that, if you had this cabinet sitting in your gameroom, you'd think it looked incredible and wouldn't give the colors a second thought.
WTF?! There is this old fangled technology called color matching. His printer should have a color profile
While I agree the cabinet looks good... I find it highly suspect that your printer isn't more adept at color matching.
I would give the color a second thought. I'm pretty retentive. If I'm going to buy a new cab; it needs to be color matched to original files.
I'm retentive... so I've calibrated my monitors, scanners, and laser printer as best I could.
I do agree tho... outsourcing to the printers is a task.
I do think if I were selling a premium product like this... I'd have requested he make a better effort.
:Waves white flag:
My comments should only have been taken seriously if he wanted to market it as THE replacement for high end restores.
I'd like to personally apologize if you took my comments as critical of the work. I think the cabs are AWESOME... and I didn't realize at the time this was a Screened cabinet. I had assumed these were decals so... assumed the vynl printer was just lazy,
You have to realize that I'm an odd duck. All you have to do is look at my Star Trek: Mirror Universe project to realize that I'm highly detailed oriented and take my restores seriously.
Having said that... I would seriously consider buying one of your pieces of art - even with the slight color differences.
So PLEASE don't use me as an excuse for not offering them to "understanding people".
