    Sorry I missed this. These labels are 300dpi, but, it's possible when you save them straight off the site, here, they are saved as 72dpi. Use photoshop or the gimp to get the labels back to 300dpi with the same width and height they currently have and you should be good. :)

    Check out page 9, about the middle. There's a great Zelda theme one.

    I found this while searching for a replacement SDRAM chip for my ED64 (don't ask...):

    Hi,

    I signed up to the forum to contribute to this thread. I've been practicing the art of label making for my Everdrive 64 & Mega Everdrive. Here's one for N64 I based off 8bitplus', which I liked, but I prefer it to be simpler looking so I took out the starfield and lines in the background and used all vector logos and fonts then exported it to 300 dpi lossless png for good printing.

    This one's a bit of a work in progress for Mega Everdrive. I use MicroSD so I don't have an SD card slot and my reset switch punches right through the top letters, but thought I would post it to share ideas and get some feedback. The main image is a screenshot of the Sonic title screen from an emulator that can turn off the layers of text that cover it. Suggestions for improvements to the design are welcome :) I need to reprint this one.

    Since I haven't seen anything for the turbo everdrive, I decided to make my own. I made them large and scaled them down to keep the image quality. I believe you'll want to scale the cover down to 62% and the label down to 32% for printing.

    Created a new label tonight to use with BuffaloWing's 3-D printed cover for the Turbo Everdrive.

    Excited for my Everdrive N8 to arrive!

    I designed my own simple and stylish cart label in preparation:

    The little "complete collection" title neatly gets hidden when the cart is inserted:

    Here's the full-res version:

    I just got a new HQ printer, what type of paper would be best to make this as HQ as possible?

    I hope this is okay to post in here, since this is an Everdrive thread, but I just got my SD2SNES and am excited to show off and share my artwork (in case anyone else is interested in using it).

    First, here's the family shot, Universal Game Case insert, Front & Back. I used a Charcoal Vinyl Die for the color. I also opted not to cut the top of the cart, which meant cleanly removing the USB (that at this time isn't being used), and reducing the height of the SD socket. I'm also using these fantastic microSD adapters that I'd highly recommend for anyone looking to do the same with any of their EverDrives (look at the end of my post, I redid my ED64). Quick review: I bought the three for $50 option, and 2 out of the 3 worked. I had great communication with the guy making these, and he's sending out a replacement all on his own! Fantastic customer service, and the two that do work are exactly what I needed.

    sd2snes-full.jpg

    For anyone interested in the labels, here are the labels at 300 dpi. I've got three versions: The SNES-style without Nintendo Logos (for those who wished to avoid those, like I did for some reason), SNES-Style with SNES & Nintendo Seal on label, and a full label with no SNES-style whatsoever.

    The Super Nintendo is my favorite system of all time (don't tell my PS1 or PS2 that), despite never having one growing up. I snuck over to friends houses all the time to play the system (my parents were very much against "Nintendos", which they've now gotten over and even own their own Wii). I wanted to create a label that showed the breadth of the catalog and the amazing titles on the system—most of which I discovered via emulation well after the 16-bit generation was over—without drawing the attention to them, and keep the focus on the name of the cart itself. Hence, emblems for Mario, Zelda, Metroid and more were used to hint at the potential of the cartridge. And, after some time playing around with concepts, I opted to drop any attention being drawn to an SD card itself. There are others out there designing that way, and they look great, but I felt like I was rehashing the same thing others have done for this label, so I simply chose to ignore it all together and go for a semi-retro Mario Bros look (apparently I get all my inspiration from Mario games). Well, I'm pretty happy with it. :)

    (And, yes, that black "01" in the last label there is on purpose. It looked really weird with the purple striping in the background when it was just knocked out [hollow].)

    ***SIDE NOTE: I spent some time at a used game shop picking out carts recently to shuck (making USB HDD shells out of them), and noticed that on US SNES labels, the long rectangle on the top right is either purple or red. If red, they usually accompanied a 3rd party logo under it, but if purple, no other logo was featured. It seemed to me this was a way to tell apart titles released by Nintendo (purple) or by another party (red). I never noticed this before. Any one else notice this and have any sort of comment?


    Here's some back labels. I have black text on white (in case you want to print on silver like I did), white text on grey, or white text on black.

    And, last but not least, here's the Universal Game Cover. It's quite large, so go here to download the 300dpi version so I don't break the forum's width.

    After making this, I recided to redo my EverDrive 64 cart, and use a miniDrive microSD adapter as well to keep it a clean, uncut cartridge shell. No modifications were done to the EverDrive 64 board, it went in just fine. Consequently, I have a black and a grey cartridge sitting around that are fully labeled, doing nothing, if anyone's interested. The grey cart isn't cut, and the black cart has a slot out the top for a full size SD card. I'm not the handiest with a dremel, so it's not the cleanest work, but it's far from the worst (or scariest) I'm sure some of you have seen. ;)

    Also, just now realized that I've provided all of these files, but these only work with those using North American SNES carts. :/ I guess if anyone's interested in any of these labels for a PAL or Japanese cart, let me know, and I can go about resizing them. Sorry in advance.

    borrowed the neat design of TylerL above...

    All three labels as printable CMYK pdf files, here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/huztr3

    For the Famicom ED I used a golden Xevious FC cart. Perfect fit !! The Famicom label shown above has a typo (N8 instead of 8N), but the PDF has been corrected.
