Dustwashers can serve as both protection against dirt and dust for your joystick, and another great way to express yourself creatively. Custom etch disc dustwashers are inexpensive and easy to install.
If you are interested in designing your own custom etch and cut dustwasher, please download the template (zipped photoshop PSD) and include the completed PSD file with your order.

Some important notes regarding the template:
If you are choosing the pre-designed patterns available when ordering (for example, punch/kick, or arrow), you do not need to submit artwork.
All supported dustwasher sizes are presented in the template as separate layers. Please choose the desired size and model by hiding all other layers. Each current brand is marked by label color within Photoshop.

As more joysticks are added, the template is updated. The overprint guide will represent the largest dustwasher available. We will always cut to the layout specific to the dustwasher size and model you chose when ordering, so anything outside of the layout (displayed in grey) is not included. Please keep this in mind when designing your etch artwork.
If you have any questions about submitting an etch and cut design, this article - "Tips on Submitting Control Panel Etch Artwork", may help.
