After collective wisdom re coil wrappers. Have downloaded wrappers from Pinballrebel and tried printing in colour on white paper. The laser printer I am using doesn't give faithful colour reproduction and trying to amend print colours etc in pdf is not easy. Anyone got any paper recommendations (internet links welcomed) or tips on printing reasonably accurate colour reproductions of Williams' coil wrappers. Colours are light blue, green, brown and orange (or on my printer, royal blue, dark green, sh1t brown and almost red!).

TIA

I recently re-wrappered the coils on my Jokerz, i just bough paper stock from Paperchase, got the black and white files from pinballrebel and printed onto the coloured paper. I was pretty pleased with the resualts, The colours didnt exactly match the original wrappers but it sure beats spending a small fortune on pieces if paper from the US

I copied and pasted this from a BigIan post a while back, I don’t know if you have tried this Eddie but it works and prints the correct text in the correct colour......see below.....

You know if you click on the wrapper you want and then when it’s loaded click in url bar at the top of the screen, delete the bit that says _text.pdf and replace it with .pdf you will get the same wrappers only with the logos?

Ie if you want ae-26-1200

Delete the _text giving you

And hit return

(It won’t let you link to it, so link above won’t work) you need to edit the url

You will need to print on self adhesive waterproof paper, the only purpose they serve is to keep the windings tight and identify the coil.
