UPDATE: SW Vintage Cardback Maker (v. 2.5)


NEW: ESB logo, plus 3 thicker nameplates compatible with the ESB logo.


NEW: Inclusion of AvantGarde Medium font, preferred by many customizers as more accurate to the original Vintage Kenner card font.


BONUS: Vintage Kenner R2-D2 and R5-D4 decals, and templates that you can color-customize.

ORIGINAL POST: I'm the one who created the 1:18 scale U-wing build-it-yourself kit last year. My latest project:

I created a vintage style cardback kit. It includes pre-made layer stacks that work on Paint-NET (a free image editor for Windows). Basically, all you need to do is add a photo or artwork, turn on or off layer categories for figure frame and nameplate sizes, bar frame effects, etc., and you can generate a vintage-style cardback design more easily and faster. The result will be a cardback in 6" x 9" size, 300 dpi. I even include instructions for how to glue your printed cardback design onto card stock.

























I hope all of you custom/bootleg/art figure creators can put this to use. I always enjoy seeing your creations!

I don't make cardbacks myself, but I really appreciate that you took the time to share these with people that might. Thanks!

Great work! Thanks for sharing.


PS Looks like there is a slight misalignment between the "Star Wars" logo and the frame lines.
