Nice! I was wondering where those key tags were from, should have know AliExpress. Everything you would ever needs seems to be on there.

Now that you have some super nice keychains, you need an even better keychain holder :lol:

Haha, Nice!

I plan to make a nice one down the road. For now this is just adaptable as my collection changes.

I've been making keychains for every game that enters my basement for years but I simply use the Arcade Flyer images. And keep them attached to the games.

I really just hated mixing up/confusing keys and appreciate the graphic commercial history.

If you want some keychains made, Jason, I'll gladly help you out. I recently bought 50.

How much per unit Kevin. I'd need around 25.

Nifty idea--I just ordered 300 from aliexpress :D

...they are actually going to be a giveaway for work but I may sneak a couple for personal use

(I may donate a few to Jason just so he doesn't have to use his key chains--any guy that has that much cool memorobilia shouldn't be subjected to ghetto key chains :lol: )

Someone on KLOV makes these as well. They are very handy if you have a larger collection for sure.

Actually he doesn't any more.

This is what led me to start making my own. I was in line to get a few from him and all of a sudden he announced he wasn't making them any longer after i had waited a couple months for my turn :roll: Oh well. :) Thats when i though, "how hard can it be?" and tracked down the same blanks he used from one i had already bough from him a couple years ago.

Got my 300 keychains--now to start buying arcade machines so I have coin doors to lock!

Actually if anyone wants 1 or 10 let me know. They work out to about .40$ each and I'm sure I won't use all 300 for work stuff...
