No problem at all My spare time has been consumed by finishing my console mod project but i have not forgotten this future endeavor.

Tonight I will get some specific size options written out and maybe some mock prices* I think would work best.
If anyone else has sizes of the mat that works best I can get a better idea of what everyone wants or close enough to it. 8-)

But I have not forgotten you guys. ;) :hinthint:

Count me in for a Club Sega mat. Always loved the typography! :D

As long as postage doesn't break the bank, this sounds brilliant.

Ok so the intial idea I had was to do 2' x 3' or for you metric guys 60.96cm X 91.44cm.

The reason being is this seems to be a more standard size. Its slightly wider than the avg house hold doorway. Or mine at least.


Does anyone have other opinions on size here?
:D

So now the next step is to get someone to do a vector art of the font logo I requested a personal friend to see what he can come up with for now

I'd quite like a larger Club Sega for the middle of the room.

I'm still expecting the postage cost to be prohibitive internationally.

FWIW I've been investigating stuff like mats and flags within the UK and small runs - even single items - are pretty inexpensive whatever the size. The tricky bit is finding someone able to do a high quality item.

Thanks for the update - I wasn't meaning to seem impatient :oops:

I really like the red mat with blue Sega logo as it reminds me of the side of an OutRun deluxe cab, it ties in with all my other red cabs and black, although it looks great in the picture, shows the dirt too much (my cabs are in a garage).

Image

Image

The 80cm x 60cm size would be perfect for me, but I will check to see if a 91.44cm x 60.96cm would fit if that is more standard/cheaper/easier to source.

I think they're great and would probably take a Club Sega one too - the missus would love that in the kitchen on the way out to the garage!! :lolno:

BTW the SEGA logo is available to download in vector format if you don't have it already.

Hi mate. Did your friend manage to do this Club Sega logo for you yet? If not, let me know and I can recreate it. It must be the first logo ever that I can't find a vector of any sort for online!

Tried several times, but he seems to not ship outside France :problem:

But if you could make these in good quality (big enough to have the width of the cab and deep enough to just be able to have a stool on it, I am in! :awe:
Especially if there is CAVE on it. ;)

I don't suppose anyone on here as something with the Club Sega logo on it they can scan like a flyer etc? I'm working up a vector of the logo at the moment but due to it mostly being from photos of arcade fronts it'd be nice to have something without perspective for accurate reference.

It's small, but looks good enough to vector.

Yeah I did find that small logo png and used it for reference but it was too small to vector, so I’ve redrawn it by hand. See below.

Image

So the nearest Pantone I can find using the images I’ve found online is 1788 C, which looks pretty nice and vibrant to me.

I’ll have another look at this in the next couple of days as the S is bothering me a bit, but other than that it’s pretty much identical as far as I can tell. Once finished, if anyone wants the ai / eps / svg of this for any projects they’re more than welcome.
