Other Details
  • Product Description

    Dustwashers are designed to keep dirt and other elements outside of a properly lubricated joystick lever. That doesn't mean they can't look attractive while doing so. That is where you come in. 

    Today, you can personalize your own dustwasher with a full-color design printed directly on acrylic. It's a great compliment to an existing theme or presentation.

    Not Paper or Vinyl Cutout

    FA is known largely for high quality cardstock prints under plexiglass.  However, it's important to stress that as part of our new PX PRO service:

    • No paper with adhesive or vinyl is used.
    • Designs are printed directly on the acrylic
    • No opportunity for gaps, bubbling, or other elements. 
    • Artwork is front and center, often bright and vibrant with less obscurity.

    Printed directly to acrylic

    Available in Multiple Sizes

    Most commercial Fightsticks utilize a 38mm dustwasher, considered a reasonable size to cover a 30mm. You can also personalize smaller (31mm) or larger (45mm) and largest (55mm) washers. The larger 45mm and 55mm are suitable for all shaft sizes, and for some, provide a greater area to present a desired theme. For easier selection with the shaft size, each are available in its own listing.

    Available in multiple sizes: Each in separate listing

    Samples, Information in Photo Gallery

    Over the years, we found that some customers do not read the product description.  Instead they review photos in the gallery to gain most of their knowledge of the product.  To address this, we provide helpful information about the differences between Matte and Gloss, size comparisons, and artwork submission tips/warnings directly in the gallery. We still have plenty of this information in the product description and tabs for those who do read it. If you have any questions that aren't answered there, please feel free to send an email to, or send a message by clicking the "Help" button available at bottom left in each website page.


    Shaft Diameter

    You can choose the shaft diameter that corresponds to your joystick shaft, categorized by model and whether it has a shaft cover or not:

    • Sanwa JLF/Phreakmods Link/EX Groove with shaft cover
    • Sanwa JLF/Phreakmods Link/EX Groove without shaft cover
    • Seimitsu LS-32/38 with shaft cover
    • Seimitsu LS-32/38 without Shaft Cover
    • Seimitsu LS-56/58/60/62 with shaft cover
    • Seimitsu LS-56/58/60/62 without shaft cover
    • Crown/Samducksa without shaft cover
    • Suzo Happ Competition/IL Eurojoystick (available to 45mm and 55mm washers only) 
    • Suzo Happ Competition/IL Eurojoystick with balltop attachment (no shaft cover, available to 45mm and 55mm washers only)

    Option: Shaft Width Option

    Choose Matte or Gloss

    Dustwashers and other PX PRO items offer a choice to print as matte or gloss. You can see some examples of both in the photo gallery.

    • Matte prints your custom image on top of the acrylic, diffusing some reflective light and appearing bright and vivid. It also has a slight textured appearance.
    • Gloss prints below the acrylic, offering a sharp, glossy appearance.  Colors are slightly muted under the plexi, and the appearance is smooth.

    Option: Matt or Gloss

    Anatomy of Photoshop Template

    The Photoshop template serves as a positioning guide for your artwork or design.  There are separate and color-coded layers that represent each joystick model and shaft configuration, plus layers for each washer size we offer.  You can hide or  show each layer by clicking on the box next to each layer.  It will reveal an eye shaped icon when the layer is visible, and an empty box when it is hidden.

    Anatomy of Photoshop Template

    Please note that by default, all of the layers except for "PLACE ARTWORK HERE" are locked.  This is to prevent you from accidentally merging these layers to your artwork.

    The template is 300dpi.  Most source artwork you will find on the internet is 72dpi.  However, depending on the screen pixel size of the artwork, you may still use it. We discuss print and screen resolution in this article: Screen Versus Print - A Helpful Guide 

    Important Notes

    No Photoshop? No Template?

    Image Formats

    If you cannot use, or decide not to use our provided Photoshop template, we also accept JPEG, TIFF, PNG and PDF formats.  However we cannot guarantee desired output. A template allows us to ensure the position is exactly as you intended.  When we receive illustrations that do not use a template, we may resize, reposition or flip artwork to aesthetically work with the dimensions of the dustwasher and shaft hole. No refunds are offered for artwork submitted in these formats, or require designer modification to fit. 

    If you not own Photoshop or do not wish to purchase it, robust and free graphic editing apps such as GIMP Opens new tab and Autodesk Sketchbook Opens new tab are known to export to Photoshop PSD format with layers intact. That said, be sure not to export in a different format such as JPEG or PDF when using these apps, or you may merge the guidelines to your artwork. Merging them to your artwork will result in an order HOLD and email sent to you reporting the problem. If we receive no correction within 5 business days, we will print as-is, with no refunds offered. Instead, make sure to export your artwork to PSD format.

    Photoshop Layers

    Photoshop layers

    In Photoshop, you can hide or show layers for each washer configuration we offer. Use the PLACE ARTWORK HERE layer to begin designing your artwork. You can add as many layers as needed.

    Do not delete the locked layers, or merge them into your art. Merging them to your artwork will result in an order HOLD and email sent to you reporting the problem. If we receive no correction within 5 business days, we will print as-is, with no refunds offered.

    Artwork is printed to the grey line. Anything outside of this line will not print. However, please make sure to allow for overprinting to the red line. Do not crop or mask your artwork to just the grey line. This ensures that the print goes to the edge of the washer.

    Do Not Send Transparent PNGs

    Please do not yet submit transparent PNG or Photoshop images without a background.  They will print with the white ink backing. We are working on a variation of this service that allows for transparency, but must provide a full explanation on the limits of transparent prints, and instructions on how to send artwork properly. If you send us a transparent PNG or Photoshop file with a transparent background, we will issue a warning in our Custom Job Tracker, and print it as-is.  No refunds are offered.

    Please do not send transparent PNGs

    Image Edit

    If you would like to use a free, online Photoshop-like app to check out whether your artwork will work with a layout we offer, I highly recommend Photopea new-window-icon.png This amazing app works with our PSD templates and is a great way to preview your artwork or create new art files. It also exports to PSD, which is the format we recommend for submitting artwork.
