After installing art's artwork on my stick I recommend that everyone should try the hair dryer trick.
A little heat on the original artwork allows it to pop off nicely and you can reuse the old art if you would like;however, the main reason is so that your new artwork printed from art will not stick to the metal panel.

That post was awhile DB, thanks for the tips though. Damn, wish I'd know about it earlier. I just tore my art off messily. Didn't really care much for it, but obviously would have been better if I conserved the SFXT art.

Well I didn't like the original SFxT Art myself LOL. Only thing was that my artwork printed very bright and I asked Art for a reprint (Which he did, you Arthur!)
Any who, I was trying to take off the first print to add the replacement print and it was stuck to that ripped off sticker crap from the original SFxT artwork. Big pain and I was planning on saving the brighter print as a keepsake...

WTH! Wow, Im in the boat! My artwork came out super bright, I did not like it. The plexi was fantastic, but not my art print. I contacted art, but he hasn't gotten to me it yet . Irregardless, I made a new art design featuring Ryu. To avoid saturation / brightnesss issues, I purposely lowered the brightness / colours by a lot. His print should ideally balance things out.
And...taking off my plexi just now, I realized my current superbright artwork is indeed stuck to the adhesive residue....

Advice is like.. "you should do this".. You were telling me i "have" to do this and that. Kinda similar to a lecture. Anyway lets drop this nonsense.

Look man I'm not trying to pick a stupid fight on a forum. Save the aggression for a fight game or something. And you mocked me by copying my syntax, it's all completely unnecessary. I know it takes two weeks to make (see my post saying how many days i should have left to wait, that kind of suggests i know the procedure).
I'm done with this argument or whatever you're trying to start, I'm not trying to get infracted.

Argument? If that's how you wanted to interpret it, sure.
I was just informing you on how busy Arthur is and you were taking it too hard.

It just makes me angry when people don't realize that this is a single owned business and people don't take that into consideration. I only let him know what Arthur has to deal with and that he is not like other businesses.

But he wasn't upset. He never was upset. He never didn't understand Art's situation. There was no reason to inform him on anything. His post clearly showed that he knew how much longer he had to wait, and that he was simply *excited* for the day to come. Next time, just let the man voice his excitement towards receiving his order. No need to white knight in that scenario. Take care.

I didn't revise anything... And if you really don't see that im excited, look at the post i made Monday in the DIY acrylic case thread that should dispel your beliefs that im bitching

So, funny enough, I had kind of the same idea as that Hello Kitty stick, re: using acrylic cutouts to create a unique effect, and Art started working with me on it months ago. Instead of being a Tek case, however, mine is a custom plexi set for a TE-S. I had a PS360+ put in at the same time, which ended up taking a little longer than expected, but it's finally done and I can show it off.
[SIZE=13px]So what you're seeing here is actually two layers of acrylic with an artwork print underneath it all. The top layer is clear, save for the PS3/360 button label etchings; the middle layer is an opaque glossy black plexi with a logo cut out of it (it's for a band I like), and the logo is filled in with clear acrylic pieces cut to fit the logo; and the bottom layer is the artwork, which only shows through where the logo is cut away.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=13px]Once the Remora PCB LED controller has the functionality I'm looking for, I'll probably be cracking it back open to add LEDs to all the buttons, hopefully with color scheme presets that are game-dependent.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=13px]Big thanks to Art for doing some major tinkering and testing to make sure this idea would work; as far as I know, this is not within the normal range of services he offers (because it was probably a big pain in the ass to do), but he hooked me up. Also thanks to rivals for handling the internal work.[/SIZE]

This is such an AMAZING stick. I was just wondering what kind of buttons those are and where can i get them. i think u said in another thread that they were sanwa obsms? but i cant find ones that look like that

Thanks dude! I love the buttons too -- I was planning to go with Seimitsus again, but when I saw these, it made me change my mind. Like jdm said, they're available in all basic colors on FocusAttack. Here's a link for the black ones, but you can find the rest along with all the other Sanwa 30mm buttons: http://www.focusattack.com/sanwa-obsc-30mm-pushbutton-clear-rim-solid-plunger-black/

Anyone have any close up pics of Art's mirror plexis that have been etched? The examples and explanations on Tek-Innovations are a bit small to see the detail on how the etch becomes kinda opaque with whatever color underneath it.

I ordered a plexi and printed art for my FS PRO, but am unable to find a video on youtube or a website with a tutorial to help me out (they're all for the TEs). From what I can gather, is this all I have to do when I receive it?
- open up the back of the joystick
- unscrew the balltop, disconnect and pop out the buttons
- peel off the sticker currently on the top
- remove the screws from the metal plate
- put my artwork/plexi on
- screw new screws in
- put buttons / balltop back on
- reconnect buttons
- close up the back of the joystick
Thanks for your help, and I'll post pics once I'm done!

I'd recommend you use a hairdryer to remove the original top panel artwork.
The heat will help you significantly when you're pulling off the default/stock artwork off the SFxT Pro.
Other than that, if you know how to disassemble an SFxT Pro Stick, what you stated is good.

I know I shouldn't really be concerned with swapping art, let alone buying an arcade stick with how uninitiated I am when it comes to fighting games, but I've just ordered the SCV Madcatz and was thinking of changing the artwork. My only real concern in doing so is that I'm not sure if the image I've put together will come out alright. What can I do to make sure the printed image is not going to end up looking too low-res? Or if it looks good enough on my monitor is that what I should expect? (Sorry for the dumb/basic question, just don't want to wait on it to ship and have it end up half-decent if I could have sorted it out beforehand)

So the SFxT Pro and the Evo Pro are for all intents and purposes the same stick, right? I'm just wondering if I were to order art and a plexi for the SFxT stick it would fit the same way.
That and while I have the attention of all you readers, is there anything else I should know about this stick? I read the SFxT stick has a screw that was over exposed and some found uncomfortable. is that true for the EVO and are there any other weird little quirks? I have a HRAP3 that I like and already tricked out a few years ago, but I felt like it was time to add to the collection.

Hi! I just came to give Art some props for his customer service. I've been in touch with him via email and he's beem a huge help in figuring out how to use his Tek series as part of a custom build. Super friendly and informative. Thanks, Mr. Hong!
