Ink is actually a lot better because you have to worry about toner flaking off on the folded edges with laser printed stuff.


Yurkie, I understand your concern, but I believe you are thinking of "crayon-based" toner media, like that which is used in older Tektronix Phaser printing... the first thing I said when I opened my Mario Bros. box was, "Ugh! They used a Tektronix Phaser!" And I totally agree with you about the "flakiness" (no pun intended) which was particularly evident on the cart label. Matter of fact, I was forced to tear off my Mario Bros. cart label when the PCB dislodged and became stuck up inside the cart body. I re-created the label like-for-like on high-quality HP LaserJet media. To this day, there is absolutely no flaking there. (By the way, let me know if you need another label for that title)!

I've been working with high quality laser media for quite some years, and the HP LaserJet toner exhibits absolutely no flaky toner. And to answer your question... if there were any flaking going on, the answer is YES. My UV-protective coating would thwart that 100%.


Yep! ... and that's why I'm thinking using Greg's services if the quality is as good as my latest boxes...and hopefully better! :music:

Greg would also handle US shipping for CollectorVision games... wich will make things 1000X faster!

The different type toner that doesn't flake is interesting. I hope your quality is high enough to become the supplier for hombrewers.

Sure, why not. Just keep in mind I'm working on my own boxes as well. So don't be surprise if you see me post about them in the near future. :)

For $10 or $12, sign me up. Money's tight this time of year, but small contributions I can justify! :)

Great idea as that will most likely speed the sale of them along as well as allow you to edit the list without having to repost it everytime.

I usually always checkout the MarketPlace, but please post a notice here just in case, for myself and the others.

If you ever make that box, make a separate thread!


The DK box looks great, btw.

Wow, great to hear this from another graphic artist! Thanks much Phil, I'm pleased to know it!

BTW—before anyone asks, I sent out a handful this week for the earliest adopters. The rest are being sent out toward the end of this week!
