    Important: Custom Orders Do Not Ship Separately

    If you place an order for a personalized product along with non-custom products, such as arcade part or merchandise, please note that all products will ship together.  We ask for a minimum of 7-10 business days to process custom orders and prepare for shipping, as we often have a large queue, and personalized orders require additional processing work.  If you desire to receive your non-custom products earlier, then please place two separate orders.  This will allow the non-custom orders to ship within our normal 1-2 business days.

    Control panel artwork represents one of the most convenient means to personalize your fightstick, giving it a new look almost immediately. 

    High Resolution, Color Fidelity

    Artwork prints are developed using a top-of-the-line commercial printer, offering vivid, professional-quality artwork replication. The printer is capable of resolution of 1200dpi (dots per inch), and 6 color ink system (Cyan Magenta Yellow K(Black) + Light Cyan, Light Magenta and White) reproduces artwork over a wide color range.

    Artwork is printed on 10 mil cardstock sheet.  It carries 95% brightness and tensile strength of 100 pounds per inch.  

    Each print is laser cut to your specifications, as presented by available options.  You will receive the print with insert cutouts designed to fit your chosen brand. Gently press downward to remove the cutouts.

    Important Notes about Color Fidelity, Brightness

    • Please do not change the RGB color space of our templates to CYMK when submitting your artwork. Our templates are intentionally designed in the RGB color space to best match most customer's screen expectations. We will not reprint artwork whose template is changed to CYMK color space.
    • Unless properly calibrated to your printer and viewing environment, your monitor does not accurately represent the brightness of paper. Artwork submissions may need adjustment to ensure prints are not too dark. Please read this helpful support article for more information

    Designed for Nacon Daija

    Nacon Daija PS3/PS4 Panel Template (2Mb zip)

    The Daija is a European import Arcade Joystick lever from French game peripheral company Nacon. Please note that the Daija already has its own removable panel for artwork. 

    Installation Notes

    The Nacon Daija possesses a flip top panel, making it very accessible for replacing joystick lever and buttons.Tools are also provided to aid in removing the balltop and the top plexi panel for swapping artwork.  This guide will provide basic instructions for replacing the artwork.

    Nacon Daija Plexi/Artwork Install: Step 1 Nacon Daija Artwork Install: Step 2
    First, open the Fightstick panel by pressing the two red buttons on each side of the case, the lift upwards.

    The Nacon Daija contains two main tools that you will use when swapping the plexi panel or artwork.  The first is a mini hex screw, used to remove the 6 screws on the top panel.  The second is a metal disk with a flat side.

    Remove the metal disk and place the flat side between the joystick shaft's bottom slit.  This will allow you to loosen the balltop without spinning the shaft.

    With the balltop removed, you are now able to focus on the plexi panel.

    Nacon Daija Artwork Install: Step 3
    Use the mini hex screwdriver to remove the six (6) screws on the Daija's top panel.
    Nacon Daija Artwork Install: Step 4 Nacon Daija Artwork Install: Step 5
    With the original panel removed, you can now apply a new plexi panel, or install artwork and then replace the original panel, reversing the steps mentioned before. The original Nacon Daija plexi panel is designed to allow artwork to swap easily without removing the button.  The button hole diameter on the plexi  is thus larger than usual, and requires a button spacer. You can choose to keep this configuration, or opt for plexi that places the button above the panel, and does not need spacers.


    Often, you will have several options to personalize your control panel, such as button layout, removal of control panel or screws in some models, button label etching, and text etching.


    Layout Configuration

    Each Fightstick has its own characteristics, with some sharing similar elements, such as the popular Vewlix button layout. We will specify what options are available for each Fightstick. Below are the most common button layout configurations:

    8 Button Vewlix
    First 6 Buttons
    Last 6 Buttons
    7 Button Vewlix
    8 Button Vewlix
    First 6 Buttons
    Last 6 Buttons
    7 Button Vewlix

    Sized for Button Spacers?

    The original Nacon Daija plexi panel is designed to allow artwork to swap easily without removing the button.  The button hole diameter on the plexi  is thus larger than usual, and requires a button spacer. You can choose to keep this configuration, or opt for plexi that places the button above the panel, and does not need spacers.

    Important: If you choose the non-spacer model, you will need a corresponding plexi or artwork that matches this configuration.

    Cut Button Inserts

    Plexworks Diagram: Button Artwork Cut Size Comparison

    Pushbutton manufacturers such as Sanwa, Seimitsu, Crown and GamerFinger have each produced specific models with a clear or translucent plastic cap and flat plunger.  These are often used to display a graphical insert, allowing you to enhance the button's appearance.  That said, each button manufacturer has designed the artwork cap with a different diameter than their competitors. For example, GamerFinger's artwork cap has a diameter that is slightly larger than Seimitsu or Sanwa.  An insert cut for a Sanwa artwork cap will fit loosely when inserted into the GamerFinger artwork cap.  This is an undesirable result that can produce a white or colored ring around the insert. 

    Now, you can choose the button insert cut to match the pushbutton you intend to use.  This allows the insert to fit snugly within the cap.

    Brands and Model with Artwork Caps

    In some instances, a button brand or model does not have a 24mm equivalent with art cap.  In this case, we will cut to the default size of Sanwa 24mm insert.

    Please note that if you later intend to purchase a different button, you may need to get new button inserts or new artwork. If you are uncertain which button you may choose, Sanwa is chosen by default.

    24 vs 30mm

    When processing orders, a frequent mistake we found among new players is choosing the wrong size for action buttons, such as punch and kick.

    Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm). In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm.

    UPDATE: Owners of Neo Geo AES Joysticks will need 24mm pushbuttons instead of 30mm (Thanks SRK's DEZALB)

    Below is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.  Throughout this article, we will mark 24mm in green, and 30mm in Orange.

    Common joystick configuration

    Checking the Proper Size

    button-30mm.pngAnother way that players can misinterpret the pushbutton size is by measuring the pushbutton plunger.  Have a look at the diagram at right.

    The plunger - the part that you press down to represent an input - is 25mm or a bit smaller in most 30mm pushbuttons.  Often this leads to the conclusion that one needs a 24mm button and not 30mm.

    Similarly measuring the button rim can lead to confusion, as it is intentionally larger than the button hole it is placed in.  You don't want to use these measurements.  Instead, review the button housing diameter, or the hole the button will be placed in.  You can do this with a caliper - a digital caliper is often quite helpful for this and other arcade-related projects.

    Control Panel Configuration

    Most Fightsticks from MadCatz, Hori, Qanba, and similar will use these two sizes.  How the buttons are used will depend on the model joystick that you own. Over time, we'll provide example configurations for specific popular Fightstick models and arcade cabinets using the color key for 24mm (green) and 30mm (orange).  We'll also expand the key for future models if another size is introduced, and we offer for sale.

    1. Fantastic!

      Absolutely in love with the job Focus Attack did on my print, my stick all comes together so nicely thanks to the work they put in and I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend this service! on Aug 27th 2021

    2. Really nice artwork!

      The artwork fits my stick perfectly and is super high quality! I would highly recommend Focus Attack! on Apr 4th 2021

    3. good but sadly not from main printer like my last was

      Update from FA: As stated in tracker updates, the artwork print material substitution was a temporary measure as we worked to repair the main printer,
      and could no longer delay orders due to growing backlog.
      I have had 2 prints from focus attack and sadly after problems with thier main printer I was given a print from their secondary printer, it is high quality and fits perfectly, but in comparison to their main printer the print isn't as sharp or handles thin lines well
