I printed the updated PDF on a sheet of clear label paper and cut it out. I placed it on my Tupperware mug and it almost looks like the original from the movie.

Thanks for sharing. I could only help because I had help from others (Buch). One of the many reasons this remains one of my favorite prop communities.

I have been a lurker on these forums for years and followed all the ALIEN prop builds. The Nostromo cup seemed like something I could make myself. So, I found a vintage Tupperware cup on evilbay and went about looking to add the Weylan-Yutani wing label to match the screen cup. With the help of rickhoward I was able to get the size and produce a PDF that anyone could print and make their own replica. This is my way to thank all the other members who have inspired me. Since rickhoward made a shout out to Buch's help I'd also like to thank him because now I have a new prop that will sit in my collection.

Many thank to you Smagda for you great job on these stickers. From your sheet, I have selected the 4th row as the best size to my opinion. It allows me to replace my own version on my mugs, one for my mother/seat replica and the other on the Tom Skeritt signed. I feel much better now

Thanks. Not screen accurate but the tiny one from the sheet is cool for the headset

I may have overlooked it: do we know any details about the screen-used mugs? Were the wings matte or gloss, decals or just printed and stuck on, etc.?

Either decals or stickers...my guess is: stickers.

The mugs have been discussed in detail in the "Drinkin' birds & gashapons" thread of the ALIEN section years ago !

Cool
