Never ordered in that shop, but I notice they sale the Dragon's Lair CPO unpunched, which would be ideal for the European Atari control panel...

Hi, just to update this as I decided to give them a try.

The artwork seems fairly good, although perhaps a bit dark as some of the detail in the vines is missing. The issue I have is that despite me asking if the CPO and Marquee was laminated, what I got was not (although they keep insisting that it was). If it is, it is very, very thin, perfectly smooth and glossy. They came uncut as well, which really isn't a big deal.

Now, it could be that there is a bit of a language barrier as to what laminated means as the person I am in touch with keeps saying laminated and then in the next sentence calls it plasticized.

If you are interested, you can see some pictures here that I uploaded (not resized): http://members.shaw.ca/junkuser1988/DL/

I didn't buy the side art, so I can not comment on that, but based on what I have seen, it is probably just fine, maybe not as heavy vinyl as Quarter Arcades.

update: seems they can't (or won't) supply it with a textured laminate - too bad as it is a fairly decent alternative. :(
