A good price neon sign for your gameroom ?
« on: January 25, 2009, 12:47:03 AM »
Found this today , sorry if you've all seen it, you can choose letters/numbers to make your own gameroom sign, good price i think for a neon sign, just $4 per letter plus a ballast for $20 that does 20 letters.

Maybe the size of each characters (2” X 3”) is not big enough? But yes, it's not expensive so  :P ...well, I think I'll order few letters for doing a test first  ::)
Thanks for that link Polaris  :-*

WOOOOOOOW!!!  :shock: :shock: :shock:
DO WANT!  ;D ;D ;D

Did you know, that a Neon sign company can make anything you want, if you provide them a picture?  The "Game Room"  Sign shoud be pretty easy and not very expensive to recreate.

I had my Sonic The Hedgehog custom made for me.. cost about 400.00  (back in 1995)

Bruno, initialy these "pac man" neons were custom manufactured in China by some German guy. He also did the pinball table one.

I'm not sure, but Luc bought quite a few of them so he may still have a couple left.  They're around the 100 Euro.

And the pinball:

Bruno, I just sent you Lucs' e-mail adress, drop him a mail in French. He's from Brussels originally so he masters French very well.

About that ball: I saw one of those for over 400 Euro's at the Collector's fair in Mechelen ! It worked fine in the morning and later it showed that a number of lines were defective....

The one that I saw and took a picture of which you see in my previous post was on a cruise ship. Yeah, these damn things are waaaaaaaay too expensive, but for 99 pounds in the auction, it doesn't seem too bad. What's too bad is that I'm currently a very poor man, so no way to spend money on toys like that.
