Sorry I have not been here at all, I am dealing with a divorce.
Good luck to you, friend. I know how hard it can be to keep up with anything when that's happening. :(

just wanted to share a posible alternative option, if anyone wanted a cartridge label

i printed these at home on my basic canon inkjet printer, on vinyl gloss A4 sticker paper....
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162311025607


the results are great in my opinion, especially for doing it at home....

the only downside (and not a major one) is that you do have to cut them out yourself... but the idea is to fill the sheet with as many designs so you should have spare if you happen to mess up....

ok... just an update.....

the stickers look good (really good for homemade)

just remember to use a pair of sharpe scissors (its vinyl not paper), and a large pair at that (to get a single straight cut) i did neither...


but a test cut looks ok (sharpe and long scissors, remember)....

and ended up in my build for now....

with this homemade method, you can change out the design as much as you like or just make up different carts...

if or until dominator makes it back...

for the time being it seems like the best option....

just a heads up, i treated the vinyl as if i was printing photos... i'm happy with the wait they turned out (other options might yeld better or different results)

Wonder if we can order a custom die cut just for these labels. Meaning just the cutter.

i dont think you need to get a custom machine....

one of these craft die cutters should do the job....

http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/papercraft/ ... g-machines


but there is someone on ebay selling labels that are pre cut (look a bit similar to dominators)...
and from the look of the listing, it kind off implies that its connected to sudomod...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gameboy-Zero- ... Swcj5ZWJNo

could be another member, or just trying to legitimise the listing...

if its a member why havent they posted this on here.....

That's a bit off! Sticking the website in the description!

There's so much GBZ stuff on eBay that I'm sure the sellers have no claim to. From the knock offs of helders basic button pcb to this...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122600049488

Which can be found right here!

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2319364

The license for which clearly states...NonCommercial — You may not use the material for commercial purposes.

That said, there is a market out there. I confess to having a knock off basic button pcb in my build, purely because no one on here was selling one at the time.
