The resolution for best results, you'll need an image with minimum of ~850 pixels wide by ~1100 pixels high.

Oh well... the file linked in the post above is 839x1061 300dpi  as I've setup the project to 7,1 x 8,98 cm (2,797 x 3,537 inches)...  maybe my starting measures are wrong... Have you got the real dimensions ?

Your measurements are right.  It's 300dpi that's messing you up.  300dpi is the output resolution (aka printer) DPI = Dots per inch, PPI = pixels per inch.

 

2.7 inches width should be @ 300 ppi = 810 pixels.  2.7 times 300)

3.5 inches height should be @ 300 ppi = 1050 pixels

I'm sure someone can print you one and mail it to you. I would, except that I'm moving this week and won't have time for a while.

If you need a label printed up, I can help. I have a pretty extensive library of Cart labels which I've cleanup/redraw. I do have a $20.00 minimum order (not including shipping), but you can just order more labels to fill the minimum. If you are interested please PM me and I can give you my full list of available labels.

Hot off the press, trying a easy to replace game prior to doing all of them. going to clean the cart inside and out tonight and get the new label installed within the next few days! Was printed on a Mikmaki CJV30-130 Printer.

 

Is a Mimaki CG-60 SR III capable of printing and cutting high quality label as well?

Gold background Q*Bert please. I would also like to see all the Parker Brothers labels done with a black background to look more like Colecovision carts...

Any requests?

Late to the game but is there just a zip archive of all of these images so I can redo all my games.
