    Was looking to get a custom translite made in the GTA for my Tommy. The Tommy musical theme is not doing it for me.

    Does anyone know of a local printer that can make a custom translite? Thanks for the help.

    I got one printed once at staples on glossy photo paper, light came through pretty good and it was cheap to print.

    Thanks for the reply. What was the quality of the original file? What file format did you use?

    I just took images off the internet, added text and sized them in Photoshop. Not sure of the file size but they are .JPG files. 19h x 27w.jpg Baywatch translite 2.jpg 19.jpg

    Thanks, nice shot but wrong sizing for a translite :) Might make a nice framed piece.

    Tommy translite by DATA EAST is one of the best artwork I saw pinball hobby. Why do you want a customization?

    I have this pinball and I scanned it.

    "The Who´s Tommy Pinball Wizard Translite" (DATA EAST) scanned 600 dpi and restored by Mikonos (screenshot 1).

    I am just outside the GTA and I can print directly on the glass or plexi. Image size should be at least 2000 x 2000, but I would double that for best results.

    I have a flatbed UV printer and can print anything 39" x 59" and up to 3" high, so I can print an entire playfield, backglass, cabinet, etc. and I can reproduce flat plastics that are better than new.

    I just recently printed a new hardtop for my FirePower game...

    Thanks for the response. What does it cost approximately to do a translite on glass? I was able to get my Tommy translite done in the US. Came out really nice. Thanks very much.

    Since there is no mirroring, and it would be local pickup the cost would be $100 Canadian money.
