I like it ! :thumbsup: First thing comes to my mind is you could probably make some really cool desktop wallpapers. Of course , that's probably not what you were thinking when you posted. :ponder:

Actually they are quite simple to make. you know all those fake software boxes that area appearing on different sites selling software? I ended up getting a hold of a really cool one (paid) that has rounded corners like the Atari cart so I figured I would give it a whirl. Then I just added the different labels I have produced to it, colored the box black and poof, done. I am going to try and modifying it to do the 5200 shell also.

Are you able to adjust the position of the box? What about angles and view?

What I'm thinking about , and this may be hard to explain in text. But imagine a desktop wallpaper with the image you posted, like an Atari cart. Now , imagine the viewer as a small ant or teenie-tiny little person looking up at the monstrous God-like Atari cart. Are you with me?

You could create like a Stonehenge of Atari carts , and add some really cool caption too! :idea:

Okay, I'm using someone's label (I'll figure it out and credit 'em in a bit) and making Amidar myself, but I can't tell the text on the end of the label from pictures. Could someone who has an actual label on it help me out?

Or, here.

That's what I have so far.

EDIT: Used A.J.'s Star Wars: Empire label for this. Anyone have the text?

Also, can anyone help me find/make a Tanks But No Tanks label? The pictures I can find of it are shoddy at best.

Does anyone have a Photoshop template for creating Activision labels? If not do you know of a site where I could at least download the fonts?

Sorry to resurrect the dead here, but does anyone have a label for Tetris 2600 or Boing!  My copies are from the dawn of homebrewing and have no label.
