The 20th group order is now OPEN - closing midnight on Sunday 3rd March.
Some marquees are now in-stock and available to order for immediate dispatch. See the stock list in post 3.
As always, please post any new design requests here in the thread and I will fill as many as I can before the order closes.
Please go to http://spectre.myartsonline.com to browse the catalogue of marquees!
Updated July 2018, 333 designs across 7 different formats! Please browse the last few pages of the thread for any new designs which I've not yet added to the catalogue.
Once the group order is open, simply post here in the thread listing which marquee(s) you wish to order. Please use the marquee order codes from the catalogue when ordering, e.g. BlastOriginal-A. I will then MP each person with payment details (paypal gift or +4%) as soon as the group order closes. Payment must be received within a reasonable time frame, or the group order may go ahead without you!
Back-lit "uniblast" marquees for Naomi Universal / (New) Net City / Blast City cabinets are printed on 285gsm backlit film and then laminated on the artwork side. These are £20 each. They have a glossy white back and a matt printed front. They are hard-wearing and are resistant to scratches, wear and tear etc. The designs are sized to fit Sega type marquee holders, such as those found on Naomi Universal, (New) Net City and Blast City cabinets. If you have a different cabinet that you are interested in a backlit marquee for, feel free to drop me a MP, as many of my designs can easily be reworked to fit different dimensions.
Non back-lit marquees are hard-wearing marquees for other cabs (Aero City, (New) Astro City, Egret, AWSD, Capcom Cute, Taito Canary etc) which don't have a back-lit marquee space. These are printed on 190gsm poster paper then matt laminated. They are £25 for two (minimum order quantity), £7 each after that! I can rework many of the backlit designs for these cabs, feel free to ask. I can also do versions of these designs for any cabinet, not just those they are listed under in the catalogue, I simply need the marquee area dimensions. If you have a different cabinet that you are interested in a non-backlit marquee for, just post here in the thread listing your requirements.
Special order marquees are for cabinets that have a much larger marquee space, such as Sega sit-down driving cabinets, Sega Lindbergh Universal, Capcom Big Blue cabinets etc. Exact marquee material details and pricing are available upon request.
The format for the group order is as follows;
- Back-lit "uniblast" marquees for Naomi Universal / (New) Net City / Blast City are £20gbp each
Non back-lit marquees for all other standard size cabinets are £25 for two (minimum order quantity), £7 each after that!
It is not possible to order non-backlit prints of "uniblast" marquees, or vice versa. This is because the prices stated account for minimum order quantities.
Postage is a fixed cost whether you order just one marquee, or 10 marquees and is priced as follows;
UK postage is £6 (1st class recorded)
Elsewhere in Europe is £6 airmail (uninsured sent at buyers risk) or £11 insured airmail
Outside of Europe is £8 airmail (uninsured sent at buyers risk) or £13 insured airmail

Individual marquees can be tailored to suit your needs. For example, you want that Ikaruga marquee, but without the treasure logo in the bottom right hand corner? No problem, just let me know when you order and if I can meet your request I will.
I actively encourage feedback, both on the finished designs in the catalogue and on your marquees once you receive them, here in the thread. While I am confident that my work is to a very high standard, I am not a design and print professional and these marquees are "hand made". If I can improve something then I will, or if something doesn't make the grade then I will withdraw it. Similarly if something is awesome, please post that too
If there is a game you want a marquee for but you don't see it in the catalogue, please just post here in the thread and request a design. If I can make one for you, I will. Other more individual custom designs can also be accommodated at 1x marquee cost for the design work, for example if you want a MAME marquee with your name on it and certain video game characters or whatever.
To maintain my sanity, please post any other questions, requests, comments and generally all other correspondence in the thread below, rather than via MP. I will respond to all posts in the thread in due course and always meticulously read back through the thread before a group order closes to ensure I haven't missed anything.
Seriously people, I get PMs all the time about marquees and I find it far harder to keep track of everything that is happening with the group order when that information is scattered across dozens of PMs. Whatever it is, please post it here in the thread, that way I can guarantee it won't slip through the net!
