Ms Pacman Stencil update...
« on: February 21, 2006, 11:13:27 am »
I am going to order a stencil for the Ms. Pac side and front artwork from stencilsonline.com . Does anyone else want one? They are $190 for the first, but if you order 2 they are only $145 each, 3 are $130 each and so on...
So, I thought that if someone else is looking we could help each other out...

Let me know if you are interested.
Thanks, Patrick

You might want to post something in the Artwork forum.  A lot of time people don't visit B/S/T unless they're actively selling something or looking for a particular item at a particular time.

***UPdate:
I have interest for 3 of these now, that puts the price at about $130 each. Each further order would drop the price for everyone about $5 or $6. I am not making any profit off this, just trying to lower my own individual cost.
Now, I am just waiting on a new laser at the stencil shop, that will cut the stencil in 1 piece, instead of a top/bottom setup that they have now. Will probably be about a month for that, so you have some time to mull it over. Let me know if anyone else is interested. I will update this post when I have an exact date I am going to order.
Thanks, Patrick

The new laser is in at the stencil place, so I am going to place the order on Monday, March 20. Anyone interested please PM me so we can work out the details.

The stencil will be the full size of the cabinet. As a bonus, it will be cut out in the shape of the side of the cabinet, so it can be used as a template for cutting a new side, as well as a stencil for the artwork. There will be 3 layers, 1 for pink, 1 for yellow, and 1 for black. Aside from lining up the stencil with the edge of the cabinet, there will also be a reference block to line up each layer in the appropriate place for painting. There will also be a smaller stencil with just the Ms. Pacman name and graphic to make it easier to paint both sides of the cab, or just for decorating other stuff.

Again, any interest send me a pm so we can work out the details.

Thanks,
Patrick

So these are complete stencils?
I.E. trademarks, etc.

And its both sides, mirrored correctly... With the kick panel stencil as well?

If so I'm in.

The artwork that is being stenciled is from the vector art library, the sideart is scaled to match the original cabinet, and has the marking for the edge of the cab, so it will be easy to line up. The mirroring will be handled by having a separate stencil for the Ms.Pacman words, and graphics that can be easily placed in the correct spot for the opposite side. Kick panel stencil is also included. As of now I have 3 people showing interest. If all are serious the price will be down to about $125 a piece ( I am not sure about shipping costs, but it should not be more than this).
Let me know for sure if you are interested, because I need to pay on Monday. Stencils will be done in about 2 weeks.
Thanks, Patrick

Re: Ms Pacman Stencil proof!!
« Reply #14 on: April 06, 2006, 08:46:22 pm »
Here is a proof of the stencil...

I found 3 problems so far...

1. Ms Pacman leg is solid on  the black part of the stencil.

2. The Ms Pacman name/ logo should be with the side art as well as separate.

3. The 3rd ghost on the side art is missing the pink part of 1 eye.



If you see anything else let me know. Also I found out that they will not be able to cut it all in 1 piece, but you can see from the proof where the division is.



Thanks, Patrick

Sorry, I have been swamped at work. I got the first stencil sent to me. The sideart looks awesome, but unfortunately the front art was completely wrong. The artwork, did not fit around the coin door! I have sent the correct measurements to them, and we should have a new proof tomorrow. In the mean time here are a few pics...

It looks like the front vector art at the library is not 100% accurate :( When it was done at full scale the results turn out as follows: They are going to try to rescale it so the opening is large enough for the coin door...

Here is the latest update on the front art... The differences are now down to the 1/4" or so. Hopefully it will be exact within a day or 2. Then this project should finally be done. Thanks, for the patience...

I'd be down for a set too...just curious how you're dealing with the parts in the black that keep the stencil together...hand touch up?  Also, it'd be neat if someone could make some sort of rub off decal that would have the copyright info on it.  Waterslide decals could be done, but then you have the clear around the letters :-/

In all honesty, I certainly hope you don't intend to delay the shipment of the original orders...Just to add a few more.

Those of us that dropped a couple hundred bucks FOUR MONTHS AGO are getting pretty impatient.

That's reasonable.  I wouldn't expect him to do that.  If it's too late it's too late.  Maybe the best that can happen now is a second order at a slighly higher per unit price.  I'd be cool with that.

Sorry everyone.... It is too late to add more to the order... After I get this finished up I will give you guys the number to order more, but the price is about $190 + shipping for the 1st cut.

Is it possible for you to give us the order # now?  I don't see how that hurts you at all since all they need is to reference the files used to create it.

Sorry Chad,
I am not trying to be difficult, but we have been working on this since March. There has been alot of confusion and difficulty in getting  this together. As I am sure the others ordering would agree, I do not want to possibly add any more to the mix until the first set has been cut and delivered.
That being said... They were in the cutting queue when I talked to them yesterday, they are closed for the 4th, and these should be finished and in route by the 5th. So, you should not have a very long wait before you can reorder. And the turn around time now that we have worked out all the kinks should be about a week or 2.

So, I hope you understand that out of fairness for those of us that have paid, and been waiting for about 4 months. I will let you know as soon as our stuff is done.

Thanks, Patrick

No, that's totally fair.  Nobody was asking anyone to delay the ones others paid for.

Chad - it seems to me that there's interest in a second run - before you buy, post a message and see what gets drummed up?  If my piggy-bank's flush (which is doubtful honestly) I am in for a second run.


That's reasonable.  I wouldn't expect him to do that.  If it's too late it's too late.  Maybe the best that can happen now is a second order at a slighly higher per unit price.  I'd be cool with that.

I would definitely be willing to coordinate a second run if pcates were willing to provide us with enough info to use the artwork files that the vendor already has.  I spoke with a supervisor there friday who said he would look into it but I couldn't even give him a real name for the person ordering the current run.  Obviously that's not giving him anything serious to go on.

I wouldn't need 100% up front, either.  Now that pcates has done the tough work, I could put in the order with, say, 50% up front from each buyer and then 50% due once I am ready to ship to individuals.
