|Packaging your customs at times is more trouble than
it's worth. However, if you prefer to collect your items in a
this section will be of i9mportance for you.
There's many ways to customize a package. The easiest way is to
carefully slice open a blister from it's card and put your custom
figure in place of the original. If you're working with 'boxed' items
like 12" figures, it gets even easier as you can just open the box and
do with them what you wish!
The alternate route is to create packaging for your customs on your
computer. The technology
we have at our fingers today is so much better than what we had 10
years ago... heck, it's better than what we had only 3 years ago! To
create your own design, or based on actual designs, it takes time,
patience, and practice. No one is ever happy with their first attempt -
trust me on this as I've changed my 'style' many many times!
Trying to explain to someone 'how' to create their own packaging is
next to impossible without first teaching them how to use their
'graphics' program - and if you know how to use a graphics program
already, then you already have the knowledge on how to create your own
packaging! I won't be covering that here as it takes too much time, and
your manual should be able to explain it far better than I. What I will
do, is supply you with some pre-made packaging that I've created during
the last 6 years. I'll also help you in attaching this packaging, and
adding a bubble/try to hold yoru items in. Those will come at a later
For now, you are encouraged to download the files below. I'm offering
some of my files freely to members of Playtrek. I'll be focusing on the
types of packaging that were being used when the Playmates line ended
- The 'Warp Factor' wave. You'll also notice most of what I offer
here will be mail-offer, exclusives, or 'pack in' figures. (Figures
offered in box sets, etc.)
More will be be offered at a later time. You can email in 'requests'
for some, and I may add those as well if I still have them. Click on
the file below that you want saved to your computer.
