Arcade decorations

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any arcade area decorations? About a quarter of my basement will be dedicated to arcade games (the rest of it is open (pool table, tv etc). I am thinking some marquees. What else game related would be cool to hang up? Pinball Back glass was one thought...

I framed pinball flyers and have them hanging on my walls.

In addition to about 20 marquees, I have six of the arcade carvings from the site listed above. Nice quality and they also do custom work.

Marquees and arcade flyers would be my choices. Depending on what you want to spend you could always order custom sized reproduction cabinet side art and frame those.

Where do you guys get your marquees from? How about any nicer arcade posters?

I bought a sweet dragons lair and space ace arcade advertisement posters on e bay.

I've purchased around 20+ marquees from Ebay and here http://www.quarterarcade.com/Browse....Parts.Marquees



Most marquees run between $15 - $25 plus shipping. Shipping can be another
$7 - $12 so you want to buy them from one source if possible, then it's usually only $.50 - $1 more per marquee to ship.

I've got a gumball and a candy machine in my arcade. I've also got a Neon arcade sign.
One of my favorite arcade decorations is a payphone. I bought it from eBay. The phone companies are taking these off the streets and selling them off. I bought mine from a guy that refurbs them. It is very clean and fully functional. The only problem is that if I am in my arcade playing a pin (or vid) and the phone rings, it scares the heck out of me. (those payphones have LOUD ringers)

I have a 48" blacklight, Lazer Widow (aimed at the floor), disco ball and large neon clock. In different combinations, it adds to the 80's arcade mood. I also have a Ford gumball machine. Its a HUGE hit with my kids and their friends.

For high res arcade flyer scans, try http://www.arcadeflyers.com. They're nice enough to frame if you print them on a nice printer.

Dino - If you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase your neon game room sign?



Thanks,

Jim
