Wanted: Decal scans for Coleco tabletop arcade


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone.  I'm so happy that I finally found and purchased a Coleco tabletop arcade from 1981.  This one works really nicely.  But as you can see in the picture, it's missing the cover decals.  I've made a marquee myself and printed it out on normal paper and then used a glue stick on it.  It looks pretty good!


I was wondering if anyone would be willing to scan in the top and one side of theirs and either post here or PM to me.  No commercial purposes at all intended.  I just want to print them out on normal paper so my unit looks a little more decent.  I could even add a little "reporoduction" label in the corner if that makes anyone more comfortable.

OK. Here you go. They printed out just a tad small...but I'm not going to fuss about it. I like this a lot. They look fine, but it would be obvious to anyone that looks closely that these are not original. It's just plain paper. And they'll come off easy (I just used a glue stick) if I ever find something better.


I left my home-made marquee....it looks a little cleaner and it gives it that personal touch.


Thanks so much! This makes me so happy. I really am pleased to have one of these in nice working condition.

I actually bought reproduction labels for my DK and Q-bert tabletops a few years back off ebay. They weren't cheap, but they were printed to the exact size and where vinyl laminated stickers. So once I cut them out with an x-acto blade and applied them, they looked stock.
