Hey Everyone...working on Reverse printed Marquees and Bezels.  Still ironing out the technique but figured I would share some pics.  Once I get this process worked out I would be interested to know if there is a desire for reverse printed artwork done this way.  Let me know what you think.



Hell yeah, sign me up!

Just so I understand, by "Reverse Printed", does that mean printed directly on the backside of the plexi?  or is it vinyl printed on the sticky side so it's adhered to the backside of the plexi?

Trust me on this, it's gonna be good  >:D

Sweet!  I'm gonna need a Ms Pac cocktail glass printed soon and this sounds perfect.

Thanks to Brad for the great artwork for my Neon Flynn's cabinet!  Great service and quality.  This stuff was super easy to install as well.

Please remember to email me at bjbowman045@gmail.com with inquiries...please do not PM me as I don't always check the site and sometimes the pm email gets spammed.  Doing a nice order for a forum member with a reverse printed marquee...will let everyone know if its approved and ready for the mainstream.

So what does reverse printing run?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Still figuring out the cost...trying to nail down a supplier for clear plastic that's reasonable.  I will be posting soon what a total package like this will cost and also how much a reverse printed marquee will run solo.

Curious as well. Thinking of getting a Double-Donkey-Kong marquee for my DK Jr.  I can get the plexi local so all I'd need is the reverse printed image.

Pretty sure he is printing directly to the plexi, so you getting it yourself wouldn't be real feasible unless you lived in the same town due to shipping plexi to him and then shipping it back to you.

Actually the process is not directly printed to the plexi but two different films.  The technique can be a bit tricky however but if someone what's to try it themselves than more power to them.  Over the next couple of days I will have a price, getting stuff ready for Christmas now.  Would like to gauge how many people are interested in full packages like Chance's or looking for reverse printed marquees only.  Please let me know.

So it'd be possible to order the reverse printed films and apply them ourselves?  Say, for example, to the underside of cocktail glass?

What is the advantage of this over translite? This is permanently adhered, right? Anything else?

Yes it can be done for  cocktail, could be a challenge but it can be done. Send me N email and we can talk as that is very specific.

Yes permanent...creates a screen printed look that film on the outside does not create.  Makes it look like it is factory.

I have a background in graphics so the application wouldn't be an issue. I'm guessing you are doing what we've done in the past for similar projects. I'm guessing you're reverse printing on clear and overlaying it with translucent white? We just don't stock a lot of translucent vinyl and it wouldn't really be cost effective for me to order a full roll or two for a single marquee.

Hey Everyone.

So I'm currently working on getting all the artwork together and eventually setting up some sort of website, but for now I will take orders thru email.  Going to make a separate account eventually, but for now email bjbowman045@gmail.com

Package
2x Side Art Die-Cut
1x Control Panel
1x Bezel Artwork Die-Cut
1x Reverse printed Marquee Applied to 1/4" Clear Plastic

Total cost: $215 plus shipping (Payment will be thru Paypal)

Current Artwork:
Chances' Ultimate Donkey Kong
Mario Bros
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Junior
More to Come once I get all the artwork completed.

If you want a custom one or are just looking for a reverse printed marquee or bezel I can do this, but we will need to talk.  Again, email is the best...please do not PM me.  If I don't keep all this in email form it will get way too confusing for me.  If you are interested in something please send me an email.  Sometimes I feel talking on the phone is best, so please leave your cell if you are in the US and I will get back to you if I feel a conversation will be faster than answering your questions in an email.  Happy New Year everyone!

Hi Brad,

Paul (yotsuya) recomended you to me. I was wondering if you are taking on any projects at this time.  I have a couple of cabinets that I am working on and could use some new graphics. I have a lot of the stuff ready..loooking for a good print man and if you can improve on the design that would be great. You can email me directly at aurumvorax.inc@hotmail.com  Thanks in advance! Have a great weekend and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
 
  Cheers,
   Keith

I ordered some 14" round side art and a new CPO for my sister's family cabinet (switching it from single player layout 60-in-1 to 2 player MAME system) from Lucian045 last week. He was very helpful, the "product" was good and turnaround time was quick. Items were well packed. I will post a pic when I get the CPO applied in the next few days. And I appreciate him giving such attention to what I assume is a small-ish artwork order- I will not hesitate to hit him up again for bigger projects in the future. Thanks Lucian045!
Completed projects: Pac bartop (Plug & Play), 30th Anniversary Pac cab (MAME), Point Blank (PS1), Centipede (arcade hardware- light restore), VS. Super Mario Bros (arcade hardware- light restore) Tetris Cocktail (SNES), Arcade Classics upright (60-in-1, then MAME), Multi-Raiden (arcade hardware). Pac Man vs.(Gamecube),

Working on: Pinball Re-theme, Homebrew arcade arena shooter

Ordered my vinyls from here and Brad is the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---. I suck at Photoshop and don't know much about sizing and vectoring and Brad helped me out with all of it. Was cheaper than every where else and turned out much better than others too. Totally happy with how everything came and will be ordering from him again in the future. Thanks again man!

Just wanted to drop a in and sing this vendor some praise.  Super quick turn around, very responsive, all around awesome experience.  Did the vinyl for my yoke and CP inserts on the SW Cabaret.  Couldn't be happier with how it turned out.  Awesomesauce!
