    777 Heaven Reel Bands

    Search my files for 777HeavenFINAL_21cm.pub the last ones I made that print on a standard printer, extract the jpegs if you want to manipulate the images and the back-masks are in another 777 folder elsewhere. You'll need to print 2 x sets to get 3 bands.

    I didn't say people weren't prepared to pay, I just never charged that much and it was never about the money

    Reel Band Production

    The bands are not cost-effective regardless of who does them, this is one of the reasons why I stopped, and backlit were 'perfected' years ago. The last problem to be resolved was the thickness of the back-mask substrate kinking due to the circumference on the band being smaller when in situ on the reel drum, and finding the right substrate to allow light through but be inkjet printable. It costs a LOT of money to buy the materials to make them yourself, easily in the region of over £800 in total for the necessary equipment to begin. It took me about 5 years to get photoshop to do what I wanted and learn how to use the programs needed, and to research the correct hardware necessary to print the lengths needed for bands, multiple types of paper for different types of bands, laminate sublimation roll, glues, adhesive removal, cleaning fluids etc. Then you need the correct colour profile on all hardware or the printout won't match the input artwork, each media has different print properties and colour differences are always evident (further £180 for a datacolor spyder). In man-hours it takes about a week in total from the first scan to printout (some waiting for inks to cure and gas out was involved) and it really has to be a labour of love or you'd tear your hair out and there's no way you can recoup the costs in charges on an hourly rate if you sell them. If I thought I could have chared £100 a standard set I'd be sunning myself in Miami. We live and learn. 😂

    So, how much did you pay for these 3 reel bands?

    777 Heaven are backlit reels, you'd need the back-mask printing on the rear of the bands for them to look anywhere decent

    All the bands I've made

    Had a commission I couldn't refuse because it was promised previously to stopping this so don't PM me for more my printer has now packed in. Blue Moon The back-mask should be printed on clear acetate roll and applied to the rear of the reels, then snip them at intervals allowing for the curvature and shrinkage once in curved position. Affix the snipped back-mask at intervals to prevent moving in situ. The number reel band is somewhere in the other files I uploaded Blue Moon.zip

    Help with broke pins in a relay slot please

    Solder to the broken pin, as long as the top part connects it'll be fine. This is an MPU2 I think.
