Free-standing video games are no longer a novelty found only at mall arcades. Today, all kinds of businesses and many homes feature rooms furnished with stand-alone game cabinets. Label-Aid Systems has recognized the increased demand for both new and reproduction arcade graphic overlays and responded with technology that produces functional, durable, and easy-to-install custom arcade panel overlay. Our arcade overlays replicate the bold colors and vivid imagery reflective of arcade classics.
Like Label-Aid’s industrial overlays, arcade panel overlays are manufactured to exacting specifications from substrate options such as vinyl, polycarbonate, and polyester. In addition, the arcade control panels are die-cut to critical tolerances and subsurface-printed to protect graphics from surface abrasion, moisture, stains, and UV damage. Computer-aided color matching ensures that the graphics retain the deep, bold colors of classic arcade designs or your own custom artwork.
Screen-Printed Graphic Panel Overlays
Pinball machines are among the best-known and most collected arcade games. The brilliant graphics on these arcade classics were achieved by screen-printing. This technique is still preferred for new control panel overlays, side art panels, and game marquees. Label-Aid Systems creates custom and reproduction screen-printed arcade panels overlays that bring classic pinball machines back to life.
Popular customizable features of Label-Aid screen-printed arcade graphic overlays include:
- Die-cut holes & windows
- Transparent colors
- Relieved or die-cut adhesives
Digital Graphic Overlays
Less time-consuming and therefore less expensive, digital graphic control panel overlays and cabinet art provide the vivid colors and long-lasting wearability desired in arcade overlays. However, these overlays are limited in size to 12in x 18in sheets. Some advantages of the digital graphic process over screen printing include:
- Offset quality graphics with perfect registration
- Unlimited color use, including 4-color and 6-color processes (photo quality)
- Affordable prototyping
- Faster lead times
- Reduced minimum order requirements
