I have acquired a pure madness machine by empire games. It's a great machine however the top panel has been shattered at some point in it's life and the decal is stuck to the glass so half of it Is missing

I can get the glass cut just up the road however I'm not sure how to go about the decal ? Any ideas ? I've searched the net for a picture to maybe get it printed but even so I can't use paper etc because of the heat from the bulbs , any advice would be great as it's a brilliant machine is like to get up together again (purely for home use) so doesn't have to be perfect would be good if it looked the part tho .

Thanks in advance

I had problems a few years ago with Crazy Fruits decals.

 

I tried printing some off and laminating them, but they just didn't cut it for me...

So I then did the same thing but once laminated I went over them with 'Sharpie' pens and got a much better result

You need a steady hand though ;)

How did you manage to find the file to print I can't find a decent pic or file to save my life, also how does the laminated peice stand up to the heat from the bulbs ?

TommyC got the font and did them for me.

 

The laminate was fine, never buckled or split.

Here's the flyer which has been used many times for emulation purposes.  Might not be sufficient resolution for a proper machine glass though :(

I've no experience of this as such but an idea would be that adhesive backed vinyl you get from a printers.

 

When I built my MAME cabinet I made a high-definition PDF (something you could make from the images you've found from the net) then went to the printers with it and they printed it on some vinyl that peels off.

 

The whole MAME cab cost me about £90 printed so a small bit for a top glass would probably be a tenner or twenty quid maybe??

 

Just an idea
