Here's pics of the old tags in the US release.

It looks like that font you have is very close to identical, just a few letters have different styles.

Until LM mentioned it a while back in the 35th anniversary thread I never really realised that the collector ponies had tags for the parlour. Seeing them like that is a bit weird to me because I think we had Lemon Drop, maybe Cotton Candy and Blossom but not the others...

Except Snuzzle which appeared for her release of the parlour in 1987. I wonder whether there's a difference between the UK version and the US one...or if it's just shade in the printing.

Also, are your cards single sided or double?

Yea, I've got a bazillion fonts but not that exact one in my printing dept. computer. Mine is like DeVinne Ornament D or something like that and another is Devinne Text. It's just a matter of downloading the font or...me switching to another computer here at work. I think the regular version of De Vinne might be on the computer in the sign department.

I generally half pay attention to font names, because actually some programs will label a font a different name but it's pretty much the exact same font. :p

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.

Karen, as my go-to for symbol vectors for my plush embroidery, I fully endorse you making these replacement cards.  :D

Aww, thanks Skeen!

I'll have to round up mine from the attic, so I can compare in terms of paper quality/weight. I may not be able to find the exact/exact paper, but I can probably find something close. I know it's thicker, but if I have one in my hand I can probably compare to what I've got on the shelf, to find something at least as close as possible.

Because just like ponies, there are a zillion types/styles of paper out there.

I wonder if the new set is using the exact or if it's simply similar paper.

I haven't managed to get to a target lately to see if a parlor is available to buy. I actually want to get one for my cousins' daughter. she's about 7 now, when she saw my 35th annivesary Minty here I have at work she was excited to see it. So I know that little kids do still love the G1's! haha. So I thought I'd get the parlor for her for Christmas. But seems like it's not that easy to find or everyone's buying them up.

I have a bunch up on my website. Those are photos but I could scan the ones I have if they're needed. Except my French ones won't lie flat and if I try to make them they put pressure on the serration and try to pull apart. You can use any that don't have a © mark with someone's name - unless they give permission too.

Absolutely!

Whether you laminate them, add glitter or just print them off as-is, just so long as we have a resource of what the originals looked like, I think this would cater for all collector needs  :)

The US cards are single-sided. :)

Interesting.  A lot of ours are double sided.

And Chrissytree to the rescue! That saves me digging through my box.

Just a request that they, even if alike the originals, will be easy to tell apart, so they wont be passed of as originals later on.
Wanted: MOC Geman baby Lemon Drop, MIB baby Lemon Drop with purple stroller, MOC Rainbow Confetti, MOC Euro(NSS) Buttons, ,  and UK carded rainbow ponies.
