You 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.
Plexi Color, Thickness
Below are visual examples of available acrylic colors and thicknesses. Not all colors are available for each thickness, nor are the materials and thicknesses accessible for each Fightstick model. Some colors come in a specific thickness, and are too thin or thick to install properly on the Fightstick. Additionally, some material thicknesses do not allow for full etch, as the material can warp from the laser.
When multiple colors and thicknesses are available for your Fightstick model, you will find them within the options list.
Plexi Color and Texture
Clear (.75mm, 1.5mm, 3mm)
Black Gloss (1.5mm, 3mm)
Black Matte (3mm only)
White Gloss (3mm only)
White Matte (3mm only)
Notes about Black Matte, White Matte & White Gloss
Black Matte is available in .125" (3mm) thickness only. This color and material texture can be purchased without etching. For AllFightsticks
models, you can use the black matte plexi panel as a full replacement for the metal panel.
You can also order with partial or full etching. Unlike clear acrylic, etching is performed on surface of the acrylic. If you are submitting etch artwork for opaque acrylic such as black matte or black gloss, you do not need to reverse the graphic. More tips on how to submit artwork for etching is available here
White Gloss and White Matte is available in .125" (3mm) thickness only. This color and material texture can be purchased without etching. For AllFightsticks
models, you can use the white matte plexi panel as a full replacement for the metal panel.
We currently do not offer etching services for White Gloss or White Matte color. While it is possible to etch on white acrylic, we believe many customers will not be pleased with the results, since the etch is barely visible.
White acrylic is also semi translucent - about 20% transparent. You will receive a white cutout that you can place underneath the acrylic. You can also place a brightly colored artwork underneath for a cool effect.
The IST MAKEStick Pro Enclosure offers unique configurations for its control panel.
Korean or Japanese Lever
The MAKEStick is compatible with both Korean and Japanese joystick levers. Korean levers such as the Myoungshin Fanta possess a collar around the shaft, which widens the joystick hole. When selecting artwork or plexi for the MAKEStick, you can choose which lever configuration you desire.
