    Pentax Digital Spotmeter Zone Sticker - DIY

    I just picked up a new Pentax Digital Spotmeter and after searching for the appropriate Zone system stickers, I decided to make one. If anyone else is looking, here's a PDF copy. Cover the printed side with transparent tape and use some transfer tape on the reverse. Cut out and attach to your Spotmeter. (Sorry, I couldn't include Ansel's secret zone on here.)

    I think the first thing I did when I got my Zone VIed Pentax Digital Meter was to remove that sticker! To each their own! LOL! I just prefer working with the numbers.

    But nicely done!

    NO!

    You are welcome. This is one of those things where it is more profitable to share gratis than it is to try to monetize. I am a little frustrated, though. There appears to be about 2% shrinkage going from Adobe Illustrator to Adobe PDF. If I have time, I will try a second attempt to shrink it to the right size.

    Well, after messing with this for more hours than I am willing to admit, I am not able to get the pdf to replicate the Adobe Illustrator file. The above pdf will suffice. If, however, you want a slightly better fit and a smoother gradient, send me a self-addressed, stamped envelope (4 1/8 x 9 1/2 inch) and I will send you a sheet with 27 strips printed on it. You will still need to laminate and apply transfer tape to the reverse side.
