Dustwashers can serve as both protection against dirt and dust for your joystick, and another great way to express yourself creatively.
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.
Custom Dustwasher Template (513 Kb)
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 disc (31mm, 38mm, 45mm, 55mm) and shaft hole sizes are presented in the template as separate layers. You can choose desired size and shaft diameter by hiding all other layers. Each shaft size is marked by label color within Photoshop.
Ξ JLF with shaft cover, Phreakmods Link, EX Groove
Ξ JLF with no shaft cover
Ξ Seimitsu LS-32/38 with shaft cover
Ξ Seimitsu LS-32/38 without shaft cover
Ξ Seimitsu LS-56/58/62 with shaft cover
Ξ Seimitsu LS-56/58/62 without shaft cover
Ξ Seimitsu NOBI Standard/Pro shaft
Ξ Crown without shaft cover
Ξ Happ/IL Shaft (note: only available for 45mm, 55mm diameter washers)

As more joysticks are added, the template is updated. We will 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 printed. Please keep this in mind when designing your etch artwork.
An overprint/bleed exists for each dustwasher layout, marked in red. Working towards the bleed area allows us to ensure that the cut we perform does not leave a noticeable gap at the very edge of the washer. Remember, anything outside of the layout (displayed in grey) is not printed.
