Replacement labels for Funware carts?

Recommended Posts

Just took a chance on a parts TI994a because one of the pics had what looked like a Fun Ware cart without a label. Sure enough, its a copy of Hen House. Still, I would like to try and replace the label. Don't suppose anyone makes reproduction labels, or at best has a scan of the originals?

I also had some vinyl sticker labels for each of the funware titles made a few months ago, as I wanted to have them available at need.

Did you make them or did you have someone else make them for you? I've been trying to get this and a set of the Atarisoft end labels made.

I have all of my labels made by StickerYou, as they have always done good work for a reasonable price (their best prices are for 20 or more sheets--mix and match).

@iliketurtles and I had a lot of fun designing these labels, all because we needed a new one for Driving Demon. Once we had that one done, we just started cranking out all of the other ones (and we even made a few with some truly interesting alternate colors for the fun of it).

Haha. I can do better than that. How about an original unused Henhouse label (with backing still on the sticker). Got it from the Michael Brouthers lot, so it would have been an official label. I should still have it somewhere, just not sure where I put it :)

Wow, what are the odds of that! Still, I cobbled together an order from Stickeryou.com, but if I completely botched that I'll send you a PM :D

Thanks again for all the help, with that and an order from Stickeryou.com I'm looking good.

That looks real sharp! Well done.

 

Can you tell me the process you do to get the labels. Do you have to resize the sticker images before uploading them to Stickeryou.com ?

Stickeryou has a pretty intuitive interface. You set the shape you want, define the size parameters, and upload your picture to the resulting sticker template. You can then stretch or shrink the image to get the details to show up within the frame and at the proper size to fill that frame. I've made a lot of different TI cartridge labels using their process.

Yes like Ksarul said, it was just a matter of loading the file into their interface, and just measuring. What label do you need? I only put one of each on my sheet, but they auto filled it and now I have multiple copies of these.

Thanks for the offer, but I think shipping to Europe would be too expensive.

Do like the atari cart labels. Funware labels are also interesting as I’m considering making some repro carts for myself.

Going to experiment a bit and check if there are similar shops in europe.
