New Artwork for Picade Cabinet

Many thanks to @angel77lopez and @Wheelhorse for the Picade artwork - I just finished a Dragon’s Lair 2020 10" Picade and it looks great.

I found a fairly easy way to scale the posted artwork and printout on a standard inkjet printer:

 - download artwork
 - use Microsoft paint to crop the individual part to be printed (crop as close as possible)
 - save cropped part to a new file
 - open Microsoft Word, set to landscape mode and then set left and right margins 
 - see below on calculating the numbers for the margins
 - click and drag the saved part to Word and it automatically scales to the correct width
 - print the Word doc on high quality photo paper

The key part here is setting the left and right margins. The Marquee should be 220 mm wide; therefore the left and right margins should be set to ( 11" - 220 mm / 25.4 mm per inch ) / 2 margins. This equates to 1.17" margins left and right.

If you are printing out the picture for the joystick and buttons for the 2020 Picade, the margins should be set to (11" - 253 mm / 25.4 mm per inch) / 2 margins = .52". If you have a 2018/2019 Picade, the picture for the joystick and buttons should have margins = (11" - 246 mm / 25.4 mm per inch) / 2 margins = .66".

The above method worked out well for me since the dragon’s lair image that I could download directly from this message board had a resolution around 4000 x 5000 pixels.

Do you have any pictures of the completed Dragons Lair?


I don’t have the side art and front art on yet - the stick-on paper I had was old and not sticky anymore so
I need to order some more.
