    Hey, so i was thinking today of replacing my R4DS cartridge sticker with maybe a blank Nintendo DS sticker.

    maybe something like this is what i had in mind

    [​IMG]

    But i was wondering if anyone could help me with the following

    what kind of paper should i print this in?
    can anyone help me with the exact dimensions?

    oh and has anyone else done this before?

    thanks

    measure sticker first and then create your design with vector program or photoshop in 300dpi. you need to add 3-5mm bleed all around to your design and add crop marks. then cut it with knife holding ruler in both crop marks and try only to cut sticker. then you have it nicely .. right size and you can stick it in your r4ds

    edit: reply if you want more info [​IMG]

    You could probably use label type paper, that way it's already sticky on the back of it. All you would have to do is design it at the right dimensions, print, and then cut it out.

    a really cheap and easy way of doing it would be to,

    print it of on paper, any would do photo, plain cartridge,

    but probably not high gloss photo paper, then remove the

    old sticker and cut the new one out, then use either prit

    stick or double sided sticky tape to attach it, you can use the

    prit stick if you would like to take it of anytime cus its not

    to strong but if you want a strong hold use the tape,

    another cheap way of doing it would be to but a pack of

    plain white sticky labels, the ones you use to price things up

    in a garage sale, cus you can print of them like normal paper.

    hope this helps some of you do this [​IMG]

    glad you like it, question though, are you changing the sticker cus you dont like

    the original or because you use my ds tm skin and want to make you ds look

    uniformed? [​IMG]

    Great Idea, I think the Cyclo evolution needs a better sticker.
