I got a copy of Q*Bert and Frogger for the 5200 recently. But they're missing labels completely. Is there a place where I can obtain labels for printing? I've tried Google but all I come up with all 'Top End Labels' for Square 5200 carts primarily. :-/.

I don't know of anyone who sells reproduction labels.  I've been thinking of designing and printing my own, because several of my cartridges also have missing or badly damaged labels.  Atari's labels generally hold up pretty well over time unless the ink gets washed off; it seems to be the Parker Brothers and Activision labels that are aging the worst.

Ugh I can't even find a template for a Parker Bros. shaped label to make like my own. z.z;

It's an unusual shape, which is why I'll probably just scan in a complete label and use it as a guide for designing my own template.  I've had pretty good results so far printing labels on a color laser, covering them with transparent tape, and cutting them with a paper trimmer.  The hardest part is finding the time to sit down and do it ...

I don't actually have a label to scan. z.z. (The carts came without them.) I'll probably find a scan of a cart and keep printing until I get it about the size of a real cart and then make an outline in photoshop or something until I get the slant right and then work from there.

Either that or you can lay a sheet of paper over your cartridge, trace the shape of the label, take some measurements from that, and design a template based on those measurements.  There are plenty of pictures of Parker Brothers 5200 cartridges that you can use as a guide.
