Arturas, at www.bluishsquirrel.co.uk
seems to be able to make custom screen protectors for our Game Boy builds. He has made a account on sudomod today.
He told me to order the DMG glass and select other then put Game Boy Zero in additional info.
I then emailed him my custom design.
Thought this may help a few of you guys.
Good luck with your builds.
Cooper

thanks (it was a good find by you)....

i've been chatting to him via his site, and i've ordered two different designs from him (will report back once received)....
(his custom cases also look really sweet, not for me personally.... but i'm sure there going to appeal to alot of people)

the cost isnt really a major factor if the quality is good (even though the cost is really reasonable)....
and more importantly, you get to choose the design (rather than someones own attempts at what they feel looks good)

Sent from the man himself very quickly. Helpful for him if you have a .psd file.

Nice find, they look great! ... does anyone happen to know these are made out of toughened glass (like gorilla glass on phones) ... only I am already on my second screen after accidentally scratching the first one which I got off eBay.

Glass shouldn’t scratch like plastic.
But I don’t know if they are gorilla or toughnend but they are defiantly glass.

I asked him this exact question it is made out of glass the same kind u can find at deadpanrobot and others.

Yaya posted a interest post on making gorilla glass proctectors I said I’m in. The more the merrier.

The last quote I got from a mobile phone screen protector manufacturer for this style of lens with printing was insane - like £13 each - the glass Arturas uses is the same that we have for all of our glass lenses and it's pretty tough from my experience with them - what are you doing to your poor GameBoy @y0shi? 😂😂
