How to make Nuka-Cola labels by Whatpayne How to make Nuka-Cola labels by Whatpayne
Here's a small tutorial to anyone who want's to know how to create the Nuka-Cola labels, I have produced.

-À la Fallout-

This is somewhat more detailed than that small one I've added to my other Deviations. It's pretty straightforward, as you can see.

Bonus: To fullfill your Nuka-Cola experience, take a look at this tutorial:[link] It tells you how to do the Nuka Caps, as well as Buffout, and Med-X.

I had to modify the image PPI to 158.625 so that it would print the correct size.

Problem: I have a painted one. Its not the paint, but the printing part. Do I just print one of your deviant art label parts, cut out that bit, and slap it on with some glue?

Sorry, can't help much as I don't have experience with the painted ones. You'll have to experiment and see what works the best. I'd imagine that gluing a label on top of the painted one should work, as long as you don't shine too much light through it...

That's not my problem, my problem is printing out the perfect size of a label so I can glue it on. Its always too big, or bad.

Okay, here's a way I did it back in the day. First cut out from a plain paper a template that's about the size (and shape) of the label, height being the important measurement. Then open the image into a program that has option to print certain paper size, eg Word. Open the picture in the program, make sure the zoom is at 100%, meaning 1/1 scale with real life paper. Resize the picture to correct size matching your template you cut, and print. Word is good as it does not loose information if you downscale the image (which is what should happen. If you upscale, you're doing something wrong).

There are multiple things affecting the printing quality. Everything from printer settings to image software. Make sure the options in the printer menu quality settings are set to best possible. (I used word as a example as it's fairly common and pretty easy to use. You can print with, say, Photoshop. But you have to play around with all the color and dpi settings which frankly are quite complicated. Unfortunately there is no easy way to print out pictures with just a simple click and have perfect results.)

the art work you gave is not able to be opened in word as I have tried a few times!

You have to import the image into a blank word document and then resize. You can't open image file straight into word like that.

The problem with printed labels is not removing it, the problem is guessing the size of it, 'cause when it's paper like the Mexican ones, it's easy to remove and get the size, but guessing the size on a printed model is a pain, maybe you have a trick? I used the american 8oz and can't fit your design on it even after several try and modification.
