ANNC: New Gottlieb Backglass Manufacturer

Postby greatwichjohn » Tue Jun 19, 2012 8:31 pm

I'm very pleased to announce that my company, Great Pinball Limited.
Has been approved as another supplier of Gottlieb backglass. Both
Steve Young & Bob Fesjian both inspected sample Classic Stern
Backglass.

The process is modern uv ink technology to apply color, white, & light
gray blocking layer to the back of new tempered glass. I ship them in
my own wooden box using the post office for USA & Canada.


My main focus will be doing glass where art can be found or supplied,
for titles not done by the other Gottlieb LLC vendors. The technology
allows glass on demand, 1 at a time. The price will be $250 US per
glass.


I would like to thank both Steve Young & Bob Fesjian, They have heard
my many ideas over the years, while I worked through the problems of
product developement.


"Eye of the Tiger" may or may not be the first glass to go through
manufacturer & inspection. Need to find out if there are other license
issues with Columbia Pictures.

If this will bring me into the Superhero "Gottlieb world as well", then I am really in big trouble. (Who pays everyone off to buy old pins, and more parts and more parts???) Where to store them?
