Making Custom ML Packages - Template?

Mon Nov 15, 2021 8:57 am

Does anyone know of any ML package custom templates that customizers have created and made available to others?

Shelf space is tight so I want to display the Eternals in their packages pegged into the wall around the bookshelf, but Gilgamesh not having his own package makes that difficult. So... I'm tempted to make one. I found the right image that matches the rest (below). Does anyone know of any templates that customizers have created for ML packaging? That would save some time. :) I have my open Thena box to re-wrap, so to speak, and I'm sure a figure about the size of Gilgamesh will come along soon and provide a plastic tray I can use.

I've altered packaging before and that went well, but I figured someone online has definitely already solved this problem. :) I'm not looking to do the back - just the nameplate and the sides so he can hang with his team.

I made a custom ML package for a figure years ago - I unfolded and scanned the box, then photoshopped it and had it printed on a suitable card at Staples. You're welcome to the images but you'd need to do a fair bit of work.

For my custom box, just printed the new individual panels on label paper.

Then used an x-actor knife to trim the edges once they were stuck on the original package. Having the removable window made it super easy.

Yet, that Squirrel Girl template is perfect. 8)
