    Hori Alpha Official Street Fighter 6 Artwork (updated 8/10/2023)

    The official Hori Street Fighter Artwork new-window-icon.png for Alpha Fightstick has the layout merged to the artwork, making it impossible to print and cut properly.  Please DO NOT use this service for these prints, or they will be put on HOLD status or cancelled and refunded.

    If you wish to have the artwork printed only, you can use our Non-Commercial Fightstick Panel Artwork Print service.

    Slim, Durable Configuration. Laser Cut Layout

    The TE top panel is constructed using resilient clear acrylic, and layout is cut to precision with a laser etching device.

    Options Help

    You have several options to personalize your control panel, such as button layout, removal of control panel or screws in some models


    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 Thickness

    Plexi Thickness: .75mm thin acrylic
    Plexi Thickness: 1.5mm thick acrylic
    Plexi Thickness: 3mm thick acrylic

    Plexi Color and Texture

    Plexi Texture: Clear
    Plexi texture: Black Gloss
    Plexi texture: Black Matte
    Plexi texture: White Gloss
    Plexi texture:White Matte
    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 Sample 1: No Etching
    Black Matte: Sample 2
    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 
    White Matte: Sample 1
    White Matte: Sample 2
    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.

    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

    Removing Default Elements 

    Some Fightsticks, such as the popular MadCatz TE, offer additional personalization options by removing default elements such as control panel, start button, or screws.  Cut options are defaulted to their authentic counterpart, displayed as [YES (default)] in the options list.  For example, a MadCatz TE, the default configuration is to have the turbo/guide portion of the control panel cut, so that the control panel can fit properly.  You have the option to select [NO] to prevent cutting these areas.  

    Cut Control Panel? [NO]
    Cut Start Buttons [NO]
    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO]
    Cut Control Panel? [NO]
    Cut Start Button? [NO]
    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO]

    Cut Control Panel? [NO] - If you own a MadCatz TE, and installed a PS360+, you may no longer need the Turbo/Guide area of the control panel, located at top left.  This option allows you to remove the Turbo/Guide portion.  Please note that you MUST remove the actual control panel on the TE by unscrewing it before applying the plexi, or you risk damaging the plexi.  Also, please make certain to select this option if you are also choosing to have artwork printed, or the plexi and artwork won't match.

    Cut Start Button? [NO] - On some joysticks - such as the Qanba Q4 - the start button is directly on the panel.  You can select to have this removed.  You can also select this should you desire a panel similar to the Eightarc Fusion or Synthesis series Fightstick, as the start button is moved elsewhere.  Again, this option is available on specific joysticks.

    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO] - Selecting "no" on this option allows you to remove the middle top and bottom screw holes on specific joysticks, either for a cleaner appearance or to avoid rubbing your wrist against the screw.  Please reconsider this option if you intend to have a full panel etch on your plexi, as etching physically changes portions of the plexi due to heat.  In this case, it is best to leave the screw holes in place in order to keep the panel securely positioned.

    1. Thin plexi is flimsy, thick plexi cracks

      I've had about 15 of these now for custom stick orders for my friends... unfortunately the thin ones are far too flimsy for me to recommend. I like that they offer two thicknesses, but if the thick panels have ANY imperfections, they can crack during button installation or after extended play. I would say this is only an issue with 15-20% of their thick panels, and the panels are reasonably priced enough to warrant the occasional crack. Despite the occasional cracks, I still prefer the thick panels over the thin panels. Thin panels are so flimsy they curl and are disappointing visually. They also tend to tear if you try to replace Sanwa snap ins, even with the buttercade button removing tool.

      tl;dr > get a thick panel and get an extra if you ordering multiple.

    2. Perfect fit but important consideration

      From FA: It is recommended that you remove the original Fightstick artwork from the metal panel before applying new artwork and plexi.


      First off, product came as advertised, looks good, no complaints.

      IMPORTANT NOTE: I ordered the thinner plexi (3/100") thinking that it would be all I need to mount the artwork, however the thinner plexi is very flimsy and feels terrible resting your hands atop it. You can easily push and bend it in and it would not be great by itself.

      So to get the best of the thinner plexi I HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking the original metal backing plate, ripping off the original art, then putting your custom art atop that and sandwiching it with the thin plexi. Doing so with the bezel works well, and it is (almost) flush and feels solid.

      I do wonder if the thicker plexi would allow you to mount without the metal plate, but I do not know. I hope this helps anyone in the future.

    3. 1.5mm black plexi

      Quality cuts from the factory, and fit the bezel perfectly. Very cool to have the option to hide the turbo panel. It was also very easy to add my own cuts to the Plexi, adding extra button holes for a hitbox style stick mod.

      Note that the black Plexi is opaque, and will even block any LED lights from coming through. Drilling tiny holes for LED light pipes was easy and resulted in a more polished look overall.

    4. Perfect Fit

      Easy to use and fits perfectly within the bezel, allowed me to implement my design with ease. I was worried about delivery but its well package so its was safely delivered. on Aug 26th 2021

    5. Excellent

      Cutting, transparency, shiny, slick, clearly, and delicacy packaging, everything excellent. on Oct 26th 2019

    6. top quality and highly recommended.

      So I ended up ordering both the 1/16 and the 1/40th. While sicker and raised slightly above I prefer the 1/16. It feels quality like it's going to last a very long time. Also I didn't get the Middle top and bottom screw cut out on mine nor the first two buttons. And it has remained perfectly flat. The 1/40 on the other hand was bending up in the top and bottom center. So while being a bendable thinner quality that is also nice, you really do want to have all 6 screw holes cut. My only complaint is that I had to take sandpaper along the edges to trim them down to match the actual metal top plate so it probably sits in the border panel. on Sep 2nd 2019

    7. Good black plexi after replacement

      I ordered a black plexi awhile back and it was traced very poorly; the button holes didn't line up and the plexi didn't fill out the entirety of the bezel. However, Jaleel and Jason made it right and sent a replacement that does the job. on Nov 17th 2018

    8. Good quality

      Fits my original TE perfectly. Nice and shiny. Just wanted a replacement panel that doesn't have a hole where the turbo button panel was, and this works great. on Feb 20th 2018

    9. Beautiful Makeover

      With obviously adding my own artwork I ordered this in the 1/40" thickness only because I wanted the closest to stock feel possible. Fits perfectly with minor tweaking of the snap in buttons and holds the bezel perfectly without any imperfections. Money well spent and worth it to keep your artwork looking like new. on Feb 15th 2017
