Front decal colouring

Took a closer look at the front decal which I had recently bought and something quite odd struck me. The colours on the sword seemed to be somehow different to what I had expected.

The flower and hand have an obvious yellow tint, but there are two colours on the sword, namely yellow and orange. It certainly looked strange.

I checked my TAF and what was orange on the decal was the same yellow on my TAF. Just to make sure this wasn’t due to colour fading, I checked a few images on Google (which was difficult, as not a lot of people tend to take a clear picture of the front of the pinball machine) and came to the conclusion that this orange colour was in fact wrong and should have been the same yellow.

So I contacted the supplier (Pinball Universe) for clarification. Their immediate response was “We have sold 100’s of these and had no complaints” but I followed this up with another question to clarify whether all the decals they had sent out had been with┬áthe orange┬ácolour on the sword and I’m still waiting to hear…..
