BDR EDIT: This post was originally created by a wonderful past member. Unfortunately, much time has past and the imagines and templates have been lost (thanks in part to the now defunct "megaupload.com"). Rather than send this thread to the archives, we'll keep it here for a while longer. There are still some helpful hints that could be useful if anyone else wants to create their own top labels. And at this time of Amiibo scalping, the last line of this post makes me smile. Alice Lawless was and remains one of the good ones.

To start, choose the labels you wish to add to the template. I am using Avery #5352 sticker paper.

Add a double space in each block to make sure the label is centered. Sometimes itíll print in a bad spot, by if youíre using #5352 paper, centering the label prevents this from affecting you.

Copy and paste each label in the template boxes. You can fit one in each box, ten on each page. Do not try to fit more than one label in a box. The template from the Avery website is not completely accurate to the page layout. This is why we will be double spacing the labels, so they fit on the sticker and do not get printed between lines (itíll look right on the computer screen, but itíll be between two stickers if you do not double space and use one per box)

Now that you have a full template, you have to load the paper into the printer and print it [in color for best results]. After the labels are printed, carefully cut each of them out. Make sure you cut a tab at the top of each label going past the sticker line. This makes it so you can pull the sticker off the page. This will be trimmed later

Pull back on the tab and carefully line up the label in the center of the Nintendo 64 cartridge. Each label is 0.75Ē x 2.6875Ē

Now that the label has been placed onto the cartridge, take a scissor and trim the label. This will remove the tab and any parts of the label hanging off of the edge of the cart.

This is how the final product should look:

Do this with the rest of your labels. If you have a lot of games to do, I recommend you put on some music.

It took me roughly five or six hours to make the labels, print them, cut them, and apply them. It only took about three minutes to put them on the shelf when I was done. Since I've already created and sized them, the hard part is all done for you. Now then... let's take a look at how this will look on your shelf:

I will be including a blank template with ten boxes per page, a Photoshop PSD files for making your own labels, and a Word document with 147 end labels. I will be finishing end labels for all 296 games by the end of the week.

I've actually lost the original files, and my most recent backup is only 150 end labels. I checked my private messages and the links uploaded to File Dropper are no longer valid. The only regular active member that messaged me for them is Norcal. Hopefully he has a backup of the file. I'm looking around the web hoping somebody re-uploaded it on another website somewhere.


EDIT: I know there's a copy floating around somewhere. If I can't find the copy with all 296 + 7 PAL exclusives, I'll just upload the 150 I still have.
