Graphics Files for Custom LEGO Signs

LTCSZLTCSZ USAMember Posts: 81
edited January 2014 in Building and Techniques
Hi Again: I have attached two files suitable for printing on labels...The files contain a variety of signs that are sized (well, close, anyway) to fit the standard Lego flags, signs, etc...They are .jpg format so they can be easily re sized, cropped, etc...All art is public domain...Please suggest any additional signs you would like to see and I will find them...I included a few national flags, but not all, of course...Again, if you need any particular flag, just let me know...Constructive (?) criticism is always welcome...I will try to upload some additional files of this type when I get another collection together...(Yes, I need a life)...I hope these are of use to some of you, and thanks again for all of your help...

    @LTCSZ - Thank you. I was just looking for a clock yesterday.

    Anyone got a Starbucks logo? Thanks

    Saving them in a lossless format (PNG) would probably be better than JPEG - there's quite a bit of artefacting visible.

    The additional files I have uploaded seem to be vanishing from the Forum...Anybody have any ideas as to why?

    It seems like my graphics files are getting combined with prior messages that I have posted...I don't know why, but here goes another method of keeping them together...Here are three files in both png and jpg formats...Hope these manage to stay in the original topic...I will be happy to post lots more if these manage to stay visible and available...Any suggestions on how to do this better would be appreciated!

    @LTCSZ Your graphics files are getting combined with other topics because a moderator is merging similar topics together, so that the forums are kept fairly clutter-free. It's nothing against you personally, as it happens to other people too. I think it's just an attempt to keep similar discussions in the same topic.

    Because of that it wouldn't surprise me to see this one combined with the other topic, but that doesn't mean your sticker files won't be visible or available, they'll just be in a different topic :)

    @LTCSZ I've noted in your other topic that they're being merged into one topic because they're similar topics. For example, your new topic 'Files For Printing (Graphics)' could have been posted as a comment in this topic, as it's essentially the same thing.

    One of the jobs of the Moderators is to try to keep the forums fairly clutter-free, and one of the ways they do this is by merging similar threads. I'd expect this one and your other one to be merged into the main thread you created (the scope of which has been expanded by a Moderator to include stickers), which is here.

    Please don't take it as a slight against you, it's just one of the ways they keep things tidy around here :)

    Thamks for the explanation...I just wish the moderator would combine them with a title that describes them so folks can know what they are looking at...I understand the need to combine to keep down clutter, but I hope readers will be able to locate them...

    Moderator: Could you keep these and future files under this topic? Thanks...

    Don't worry, people will be able to locate them - the Mod renamed your original topic as 'LTCSZ: Looking for assistance in finding parts, stickers for LEGO Railroad Passenger Car', which, while a bit long, nicely covers what is in the topic :)

    I actually think people will be able to find them more easily all in one thread, as when you add more to the thread, it'll jump to the top of the list again, and people who are interested will then go in and check what's new. Maybe it's just me, but I think they're more likely to check an updated thread they've read before than read a new thread.

    Good points...Thanks for the advice...Guess I'm just being paranoid, although I think "stickers for Lego passenger cars" might mislead some folks...

    At what size should I print the images?
  • LTCSZLTCSZ USAMember Posts: 81
    If you print the entire sheet on 8.5x11 paper, the size should be just about right...I print them on a label sheet 8.5x11 and it works great...If you need a different size, let me know, but you should be able to resize any one if the images with any simple graphics program...

    Here is the 4th edition of some logos sized (closely) for Lego bricks, sign blanks, etc...jpg and png format

    I'm about out of ideas for logos...If anyone has suggestions, I will be happy to do more files or individual logos...Thanks,

    I wouldn't bother rescaling the images. If they are not the correct size, then find the original image and scale from that. Rescaling already small rescaled images is going to lead to poor quality, even at this size.

    Another problem using real images is that they don't always look right when used in a lego setting. They are just not lego-like. And they don't always look so good when 1cm high. For example, many of the beer logos are not readable when made 1cm high. If you need a particular company logo, then go for it. Otherwise sometimes it is better to make a more generic looking one. For example, a fairly generic BEER rather than the company based logos.
  • LTCSZLTCSZ USAMember Posts: 81
    Thanks for the comments...I will start redesigning some of the logos and try to create some generic ones with higher resolution...

    You really have to think about what can be seen when the images are reduced. I know I have screwed up in the past making a uniform look really great at full screen resolution, which then looks awful when shrunk down to the size of a torso.

    Any recommendations for good websites or companies to print a one-off sticker(s) for Lego? I am working on a modular moc that would greatly benefit from at least one sticker. Might also look at using some of these newly posted ones as well if it can be done at a reasonable cost.

    LTCSZ....thanks, very thoughtful of you.

    If you can print the flag designs "in reverse" you'll have a buyer in me

    Thanks for these.  You don't know how long I've spent looking for a "do not hump" sticker.  Glad you included it.

    Thank you so much.  I would also love world flags that I can use.  I hopped over to the other thread and found your others.  Much appreciated.
