The Atari 7800 Label Thread

Recommended Posts

Well.... to sort of jump start the thread ;)

(not a very good first one and kinda ugly but I did this a while back in response to the SMB3 for the Atari 8bit homebrew by analmux? I believe)

Added this also to the Q*Bert homebrew thread, but here is one I did.

Oh, which reminds me, does anybody know the exact font for the Atari name and the "Video Game Cartridge". I used HammerFat for the Atari name, but is technically to thick and found Hammerthin, but is to thin. Anybody know the regular font name? Also I used MS Sans Serif, but isn't exact, but the closest I found in my font stash so far.

Someone want to make a Double Dragon label? :)

(I don't like the white one ;)

 

*better yet - if someone does make a double dragon label is there someone out there that could print me the label for a small fee?*

I actually use Arial - it's very close if not the correct one. Although you have to select 'bold' for it to look right at the top. On the bottom the regular setting works. Also, I think if you use Hammerfat and reduce the spacing between the letters, it looks correct, no? Example included :)

I ended up switching to Arial in my next rev of the label. I look at key fonts, specifically on the cartridge, the G and R. G has a line extending all the way to the bottom and on Arial it doesn't, and on the R, it is rounded a bit on the \ area instead of just straight like the Arial font. But otherwise, very close.

 

Your ATARI looks good, but won't know until printed. I will have to space the font more, but not sure how to do that in Photoshop.

 

On your 7800, very clean, what did you use for that? I ended up getting a box scan and cleaning it up, which is good, but not great. Also, there shouldn't be a TM mark by 7800, carts I have looked at didn't have them.

Yup :) We sell blank labels for laser printing (and print them also) for a small fee. It fits the standard Atari cartridge though and not the Activision cartridge. If interested, PM me and I will see what I can come up with for a label design.

Thanks (I actually look at letters 'S', 'A' and 'M' - never even noticed the 'G' :ponder:

 

I actually found a similar font for the '7800' lettering: Futura XBlkCN BT

I had to 'bold' it and make the spacing between the letters very small. I have included it here :)

 

That's funny about the - I saw it on the 2600 red labels and just ass/u/med it was on the 7800 :roll:

Here are some games I know we have all been dying to play on the 7800.

 

PS: Do you guys care if I add your mock-ups to Cousin Vinnie's Panoramic Atari 7800 Froo Froo website?.... I'll give appropriate credit of course. Not alot of 7800 news to report after I have finished the site :)

Does the Armor All game come with the gallon jug or do I need to mail in 20 proofs of purchase in a S.A.S.E.?
