LOL pretty cool, I am certain nobody would object to you changing your own personal label, I prefer to keep mine as created but certainly that is the beauty of projects like this, do what you want!

I love the Harmony Cart and Nathan Strum always does outstanding label art, but I've never liked the yin-yang. I don't mean on this specifically; I mean in general. I can't explain it and don't know why I feel this way, but I have a negative gut reaction to the symbol every time I see it. Odd? Maybe. I've always wanted to replace the label just for that reason, but probably never will. We'll see. (No tomato throwing, please). :lol:

 

About your label -- disrespectful? Nah, it's your cart; you gotta go with what you like. However, you may want to change the "Use with joystick controllers" to something a little more accurate. ;)

Use with ALL controllers!

 

And change the "game program" to "game library"

I realize it was probably done on the web site, but you can use that as a starting point and put your own text over top with something like GIMP. The fonts are on atariage somewhere.

Me too,I think they look more technical. Things like this, basic programming, chess, checkers look perfect on them.

Ok found the atari font left the little tm thing and matched up the color (well the best of my ability)

Ok all done $1.20 later at staples and i got 4 labels. Stuck it on the cart and this is what i got.

Not bad for just trying it on a whim lol.

Not that hard with GIMP i advise anyone to try it :) .

Looks good. How is staples printing? Do they print actual vinyl labels?

Not that I would want to undercut Al, but turn around in hours would be cool.

Thanks for the compliment. For what it's worth - I have the same reaction about the yin-yang. Consequently, that made the label more challenging to work on since Fred wanted the yin-yang included. But I just took it on strictly as a design element, and managed to come up with something that I was pretty pleased with. I look at every label as an opportunity to do something different, and there are things about every label I've done that I would go back and Lucas change if I could. As far as I'm concerned, if people want to change their labels - they paid money for their carts, and can do with them as they please. There are some carts of my own I'd happily rip the labels off of.

 

But making new ones would be too much work. ;)

 

Incidentally, after we'd already started working on the label, I happened across this contest entry for the Krokodile Cart. Same concept, color scheme, and even type of product. Pretty bizarre, huh?

Wow, I've never noticed that.

 

But it's worth pointing out that the yin and yang on Harmony weren't intended to symbolize a PC and a 2600 but rather ARM code and 6507 code running together in harmony.

Has anyone made an edge label? Something to print out and just cut holes for card and USB port. Could say SD card and USB below these holes perhaps.

I made a generic end label on 2600labelmaker.com or something like that (forget the exact site)... didn't bother cutting holes, since I bought the microSD version specifically because I intended to load it up with RomHunter's set and go. My biggest problem was I have yet to find a place around here that does vinyl labels (to be fair, I haven't looked all that hard)

 

I do have a question related to this though:

 

Has anyone made a UGC cover for the Harmony cart? Because I would love that so very much. The Cover Project only wants officially released games, and I've seen a few people make UGC covers for Everdrives, but I would love a Harmony one and I'm so bad at design...

I made a few and sent to Fred Quimby, he had some additional wishes and I added that to the version I liked best myself as he didn't mention if and which one he liked the best.

 

So I made one for myself and the Harmony looks a little bit more finished, had to try the others out as well...

Cutting holes in photo paper is difficult, the top layer crumbles.

Very nice creations!! I also like the top middle the best with the singly harmony text second. I like the way it pops.

That's the one I glued to my cart and also added some graphics to (click for full picture).

I haven't heard from Fred in one and a half week so I haven't bothered cleaning up the AA-logo and such.

I like e5frog's end labels, but I don't think they would work on my harmony cart. It looks like the SD/USB port is farther to the top-left on mine:

That's okay though. I wasn't planning to print out a label.

My Harmony cart is naked :-(. Is anyone willing to make me a label and I'll pay you? I tried printing and cutting, but it looks terrible. Can you buy an extra original one? I looked on the site and there is no way to contact anybody, just to buy it. Any help appreciated, thanks.

When you bought it, how do did you pay? Did you not get any shipping notice or similar?

 

Otherwise I'd check here:

http://atariage.com/...-cart-software/

 

Then I'd send batari a PM and ask for help...

 

Other was can be to google for:

"erstwhile technologies" fred quimby

 

Then you'll get an e-mail address in plain view in case you don't like PM:s. :-)
