If you play your Lynx as much as I do, the labels on the underside of the Lynx get very worn over time. Or maybe you bought a used Lynx with bad/destroyed or even missing labels.

 

I opened up this topic to see if there is enough interest for reproductuon labels.

 

I will not produce them myself, but this will be done by my good friend Etienne who has specialised in reproducing labels in all kinds of sorts for arcade machines.

 

He is very quality focussed and will try to do everything to get a result that is virtually identical to the originals.

 

To get an idea of his work and quality, have a look at his webshop here:

https://www.easywebshop.com/arcadedecals

 

This is just a hobby for him, more a service to the arcade collectors but I asked if he was willing to do Lynx labels and as long as he can fill some sheets that is fine with him.

 

This will require scanning and digitally reproducing the labels. He will do this work. Original fonts will be used and graphics will be vectorised so they won't be simple copies but proper repro's.

 

I have NO experience with removing labels from a Lynx. I have no idea if its easy or not....so....your own risk...worst case you can put the new ones over the old.

 

So, please let me know if you are interested, for which model and how many. They will be sold as sets per Lynx type I or II.

 

If you browse the webstore you can get a global idea about the costs.

Mmmmm.......thanks to the guys responding but it's not like there seems to be a huge demand....weird. The prices of the labels are really very low IMHO....so what is there to loose ?

This might seem silly but did you check the back on the Lynx II ? There's only the serial number sticker there. Those are meant to be unique and most of the Lynx IIs I have are either missing this or have it completely not readable. Having some kind of interesting replacement sticker there would be good, but that's the only one on the Lynx II.

Aha so that is probably the reason. I guess most people have the Lynx II (sadly IMHO). I have one somewhere....but think it's dead, nor do I care much for it. IMHO it was a lesser unit in all aspects except the backlight switch.

 

Yeah there's a small serial label on the I too as you can see. Not 100% sure but I think my friend could do these too,

I've got a couple of Lynx I consoles so I'd definitely want replacement labels for those. Can you do a small batch order maybe?

I've nothing but this huge barcode on the back of one of my lynx 1 units. So I'd welcome the replacement labels ASAP.

OK, there is some interest but not much.... I'll ask my friend if he can do some...

I checked the site at the link you posted but there aren't any prices listed.

How much would PS2 fat replacement serial labels and caution labels cost?

I was thinking about this the other day and I'm still interested for lynx one. Sadly I think this seems like another enthusiastic idea that won't come to fruition for various reasons but I hope it does
