I came across a self serv Eico 660. Having flatbed printers at work is nice. I made up a new top glass.
Working out the final sizing and fit, turned out well.
I wonder if there is an interest in these with stock artwork, or customized, personalized artwork.
This is my 1st piece, have already reworked the art to have the dot count right, the dots across the image.

edit 666 to 660.

First one for trial fit shows a bit thick and image needs lowered. It should backlight well.
Would like to find some interesting images to use, a cartoonish guy holding a tube and lightning bolt.
Open for ideas and links.
I'll print a new one on thinner stock. I can't print white, but I can print on white.
Using an Oce' Arizona 250GT to do these, it's a flatbed printer that I revived at the shop after it sat idle for about a year.
This was printed on a clear sheet, then the backside painted flat white.

Thanks Richard. Now that I have the size and thickness resolved I came up with a couple designs.

That doesn't look like any Eico 666 I've ever seen.

the middle one is the Eico 660 normal, the orange is a bit off in this pic, the light blue and black are my own design choices.
Anything can be printed. The final print/cut files are not for public release.
I'll probably print the stock version tomorrow providing I can get on the Arizona for a bit.

Any references to factory colors is appreciated.
