G1 Grooming Parlour / Pretty Parlor NAME CARDS
« on: August 12, 2018, 07:25:26 PM »
Hello!

Quick question -

has anyone made a digital graphic of the original name cards for this playset, i.e. ones that could be printed to replace lost ones?

I saw a photo of some original cards on MLW, but I am after something more crisp  ;)

Thanks in advance!  :rainbow:

Wow, this is a GREAT idea!  I have the US name cards (the Collector ponies + Lemon Drop + Peachy) somewhere . . . but where??  If I find the box I'll definitely scan them in!

Would also love to see scans of the namecards from other countries!

Thanks, LM,
I think it would help a lot of folks who would like to display their Parlour to its full potential!  :biggrin:

What about the ones from Snuzzle's parlour?
I have most of those back home. My scanner and my ponies are not in the same place at present, but it might be doable if wanted...

Sunburst and Gusty and Sky Rocket, "Storm" etc..?

I have a lot of the tabs (in English) in varying condition from various UK releases of the Peachy and Snuzzle (blue) parlour releases but I don't have the one for Kiss Curl's parlour (just says Grooming Parlour). I don't think.

Oh yes, the more name cards, the merrier!
It would be awesome to get all these scanned!  :thumb:

I agree, scanned cards would be great. I still have not been able to find my missing ones.

Best bet would probably be to recreate them as an SVG file.  G1 used a modified version of the De Vinne font, possibly a few others?

De Vinne Ornament Regular is what I used for my avatar image's rainbow logo.

I'd love to see the UK nametags scanned in!

I also think it would be fun to make some nametags for ponies who never got them, like the TAF ponies and Twinkle-Eyes!

If there's a picture of them somewhere, we could recreate them in photoshop or something.

I run a printing company, generally as long as a file is vector and not raster you're going to have less trouble if someone is printing it for you.

obviously some things are going to be raster, like photos - but anything font related or even say pony symbol related those can be vector.

I actually prefer EPS files, just because I use a number of different programs.

Vector files also make it easier if something has to be adjusted for printing.

Just like when these were originally printed, a printing company isn't going to print 1 of these out at a time. They'd print bunches of them on larger sheets and then cut them after. This is the same thing I do and I have a huge cutter. So say, business cards or tickets or whatever I'm printing that is a smaller size. They're printed by however many fit on the page, and then the stack is cut after printing.

So if someone else is printing for you, you'll want to design the whole page.

And reason vector is better, if something is not lined up quite right, the printer can go in and adjust to make sure nothing is cut off or missing once items are printed.

If anyone has the appropriate font/program and can host a bunch on a Google drive or something, it'd be awesome if they could have a request list and make some that people want. (Big Brothers, please.)

just playing around with what I remember but they're something like this aren't they?

Sorry size and style is not exact, it's just something I whipped up really quick from what I remember them looking like.
