All of our arcade plans include spray and stick arcade templates. These arcade templates will simplify the building of your arcade. We recommend printing them out on standard 8.5×11 paper and then using a spray adhesive such as 3M Super 77 to attach them to your arcade panels (temporarily).

If you don’t have any 3M Super 77 or other spray adhesive you can also use an Elmer’s Glue Stick, or simply tape them on using masking or packing tape.

This video will show you the best practices for using these templates.
