    Default Printing SNES Labels?

    Okay so I've decided that I'm going to reprint some snes game labels since some of mine are in pretty rough shape. But I have a few questions. How do I print a label in the correct size? Every time I try to print one, it prints a full sized page. Is there a special program I should be using to print? I usually just right click on the image, then click print and it brings me to some printing options of resizing the image. But none of them are the right size! I'm a printing noob. Please help.
    Good news, cigarette juice!

    Do you have a photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop? Any of them that have a crop tool will work. If so, just set the crop tool to crop at the correct dimensions and make sure the resolution is set to at least 200 dpi.

    I know that sounded really nerdy and you still may not understand, but I am studying to be a graphic designer. I can probably simpify if need be.

    Actually, heck, I may be able to do it for you. All you would need to do is email the labels you need to me. I could then do the necessary work and email them back.

    If thats what you want to do, my email is hurricane.andrew92@hotmail.com

    When I did mine, I think all I used was paint and msword and a good printer. I laminated them and everything, but now that they're a bit older, its hard to make out some of the finer print on my home made labels.

    Here's the first hit from the google search "snes label scans"

    http://www.snescentral.com/displaylist.php?id=carts

    Looks like a pretty good starting place to me.

    Yeah I already saw that. I meant to say I'm looking for labels for some of my translated repro carts. Like Secret of Mana 2.

    In my case, I just took FF3, then pasted the box art for Seiken 3 and new text over Final Fantasy III. Came out pretty good to me.

    You can try makin a scan request for the labels on thecoverproject - they do a lot of box covers (both scans and covers) and have done labels scans as well.
