Well done! Actually I am in the process of making my first bartop MAME cabinet, and I was wondering how I could cost effectively make the marquee and the side art - I can make the custom art myself, I just don't want to pay an outrageous amount to get it done lol Everything is on a budget lol Your method shown here will work perfectly for the side art of the cabinet and should be far less expensive than getting it done through Fast-signs. Do you know if that paper is available for Laser printers as well? I have an inkjet that I never use in my basement but I prefer my color laser)For the marquee, I'm actually going to get some 3M color laser printable transparency sheets to print my image across. This will then be cut to size sandwiched between 2 pieces of left over plexi/lexan. The outer piece of lexan has has a tint, and is left overs from the monitor bezel. This will allow the image to shine through when turned on via the led light strip behind the marquee and will be a be muted due to the tint so not to be overly powering - focus should be the game on the screen not the marquee.
