I need a super mario themed control panel overlay, marquee, and side art designed for a stand up arcade cabinet. The site that will print out and ship the final product to me requires the designs to be in the following format:
Artwork you create must be the correct size and it should be at least 200dpi, but 266-300dpi is preferred. Leave the document in RGB mode which has a broader color range. Do not create a file in a lower dpi and then convert it to 300dpi, this only makes the file bigger and does not enhance the resolution. It will still come out blocky and actually worse then if you left it at a lower dpi. Start creating at 200 or 300 dpi at full size, in other words, if you are creating a 300dpi marquee that will print at 26x8” create it at that size. We will print it the size you send it, we will not resize it. The file should be a .psd photoshop or .ai adobe illustrator file
Marquee: Length of 25 3/4" and Height of 7 3/4"
This is the highlight of the cabinet, it will be backlit. Do whatever you like with the colors.
Side art: Length of 18" and Height of 26". Image can be anything mario related, but hoping you keep the style in the same vein as the marquee and control panel. Perhaps Mario on one side and Luigi on the other, or both sides of the side art can be the same image.
Control panel: The control panel is a bit tricky because it's littered with 2 joysticks and buttons and such but essentially it will need to be Length 25 3/4" and Height of 8 1/2". To make it even trickier, the panel angles inward towards the bottom as you can see by the plexiglas cover: [url removed, login to view]
Transparency in the image won't do anything, so if there is to be any transparency, choose a satin black color as that will match the color of the control panel and paint on the cabinet
