  • Arcade!? - Never! - Really? - Yup!
Hi there, do you do international posting [new zealand]?
The adhesive vinyl is 5mm thick?
Can you do edge to edge printing or do I need to take a boarder into account.
Cheers Adam
My art is always free for you to download and modify as you see fit...
Why?... because I could never find any art I loved on the net. So I played around with Photoshop and wish to share it with the arcade community.

^ because random local print shops pretty much want whatever they can get from people. like they make up prices lol..

thats why its better to have it done by someone online. usually cheaper and better quility. I am getting my panel and marquee stuff from darkniyt too. will post pic when I have my cabinet ready.

I received my CPO yesterday for a joystick I'm building for a friend. It looks awesome. We had some random issues on both ends, but John stepped up and above and beyond to make them right. Great product, great price, great service. Thanks John!  :cheers:

My artwork arrived from John today, in summary:

John responded to my order on a Saturday and we quickly finalised the order via email.  He advised it would be printed and posted on Wednesday.
John sent a confirmation email that it had been posted on Weds with tracking number.
The artwork arrived in the UK in 8 working days, well packaged in a tube.
The artwork is amazing, great quality colour, high quality media and everything I was hoping for.

In short, I cannot fault the service, and highly recommend it.

Sounds great

Thanks

@Jimmy

Take a look at the link in my signature to see a pic of my cabinet, it's a mini cabinet so obviously cheaper than a full sized!  All artwork and shipping was something like 36.

Does anyone know if John is out of town at the moment? I haven't been able to get in touch with him for a week and he hasn't responded to my quote request.

So I'm not the only one. My Marquee and CPO are two weeks overdue and he hasn't responded to my Side Art quote request either. Hope everything's alright.

Hi all, John's partner Eric here...

just wanted everyone to know, if you have any artwork requests, go ahead and let me know and we can get a jump start on anything you need done.  Then after John makes his speedy recovery, we can deal with printing at that time...  I am sure he will be up and around in no time...

Later all

Eric

I sent a message earlier today but I'm not sure if it went through. I need a CPO printed, the file is 179Mb and the dimensions are 30in x 15.5in. How much would something like this cost?

It would be about $24.25 for the CPO, PLUS if you want laminate, another $14.00. I may be a few bucks off, but that is roughly what we charge...

I'm also looking to place a CPO print order.  200mb or so... illustrator file.  49"x19".  Envyrotex laminate of course... Sent John an email last week with no response.  Hope everything is ok.

anyone know whats going on with John?

I understand he was in a car accident last month. He claimed he would be printing again august 9th and would need a week to catch up on his orders.  I emailed him asking for the status of my order 2 days ago and never received a response from him.  My project is up to the part where the artwork needs to be applied so iam becoming a little antsy.

i dont mind waiting a little longer(its been about 2 months now) and i will not accept his 40% discount he is offering i just would like to know the status of the order.
