Pretty big...but let me find out...
Quoted from Methos:
Any way I can get one of those Creature translites from the original lobby card? Just beautiful art all the way around.
This one is from the original Lobby Title Card. (I removed the credits on the bottom and had to adjust slightly to fit the backglass size) I can use any of the cards though. The only other good one is the Creature in the water...
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:
You could potentially print cab art on the back of a sheet that would protect the art once installed....
Quoted from jwilson:
Can you print white?
Yes....doing a test now with a layer of white.
ALSO: Just been confirmed...A Playfield CAN be printed on wood as long as it's smooth and not more than 2 inches thick!
I gotta tell the Forbidden Planet guys this!!
He also said there are some pretty cool acrylics that are very strong and some in colors, etc….
Hope your friend knows what he might be in for........this just opened a whole new world of endless possibilities.
Great! As long as it's 2 inches or less. Wanna re-theme your game? Sand, smooth and print. Then coat.
$150 is what we're starting at for the backglasses. Also good if you have a rare one and want a spare to use that won't break!
Working on 3 projects now. I'll report here how it goes.....
Is there a reason playfield glass is used instead of acrylic? Does it distort to look through?
I don't know. My buddy told me there are different strength acrylic. I'll ask him how durable it would be with a ball strike...thanks!
Acrylic that thin is flexible and easily cracked. Polycarbonate that thin is also flexible and easily scratched. Worked well for my printed EBD backglass, though, which is why I was asking about the mirroring.
Thanks! It's really great that all you Graphic Design Genius Guys/Gals can make up your own custom stuff, send the files and get it made...
im definitely interested. as a graphic designer, I want to make my own backglass art but never had anywhere to print. This seems perfect!
Yup. And also using a lot of combo items from foreign and domestic posters from the 50's.
Hey, Ted, how bout some Pinball themed pieces to replace the plastic on standard fluorescent bulb drop ceiling fixtures? Lots of room for art.
Probably be cool to make it kind of Pinball generic to sell more...maybe pop bumpers randomly placed with a white background to allow useable light to still pass thru?
You could also play with the shadows created somehow. Make the light covers cast shadows of flippers and stuff on the floor.
