10 Steps to Wrap an Arcade Game

The wrapping of this arcade game was done in 10 easy steps. This wrap was printed on Mimaki's latest eco-solvent printer, the JV100-160, and laminated with Mimaki's LA-160W heat-assisted laminator. The panels were cut with Mimaki's CG-FX Plus cutter plotter. The digital media used for this application was Mactac REBEL RB528H High Tack and the laminate was PERMACOLOR ColorGard LUV 8200.

Step1: Measure the outside panels of the arcade.

Step 2: Remove the glass top of the arcade and measure the graphic underneath. 

Step 3: Design a game graphic in Adobe Illustrator, following the measurements above. 

Step 4: In Adobe Illustrator, create game graphics fitting the arcade's 17" x 24" panels and the top graphic adding a 0.5" to each side to help during installation.

Step 5: Print out the sections on Mactac REBEL RB528H High Tack using the Mimaki JV100-160 with SS21 eco-solvent inks.

Step 6: Laminate each panel using the Mimaki LA-160W laminator and Mactac PERMACOLOR ColorGard LUV 8200 matte laminate. 

Step 7: Cut the panels using Mimaki FineCut and the CG-FX Plus cutting plotter.

Step 8: Apply the new graphics over the old ones on the arcade panels. 

Step 9: Cut the new graphics in sections to fit the coin slots and money retrieval sections.

Step 10: Replace the top graphic and secure the glass back. Have fun with your freshly wrapped arcade game!
