Hey there, everyone! I’m koogy! you may remember me from the Guilty Gear scene, or maybe you don’t know me at all; the only thing you need to know is I love doing graphic design. So much, in fact, that it’s what I do for a living. And you know what else I love? Making custom joystick art and helping people! I figured, I have some free time now, so I want to offer the community my skills!
**CUSTOM JOYSTICK ART COMMISSIONS! **Starting at just $20, you can get a professionally designed graphic for your stick! Why let stick makers create the graphics? They are the ones making the hardware! Let me take care of the aesthetics! Want to make your HORI HRAP or SF4 stick a bit more personal? I’ll take care of that! Feel free to send me a PM here for further information and price quotes!
How long does it take to do the art?
It greatly depends on the style and the required images needed for the final piece. If you just want some fancy typography and a picture of your character, it could take an hour or two. If you want a vectored image with grunge and lots of effects, it could take a few days. It also depends on the backlog, which I’ll keep updated on the first page.
How much does it cost?
Again, depends! For an intro offer, and to see how popular or unpopular the idea is, I’m going to offer cheap-y prices! Again, I can give rough price estimates once I get an idea of what you want. Depending on the difficulty of the piece, the price begins at $20 and ends upwards of $150. However, 99% of the stick art commissioned will fall between $20 ~ $50. I put all my effort into each piece, and I won’t finish until you’re 100% satisfied. If you have unique sizes needed, such as a huge custom joystick, or a very small joystick, I adjust my prices accordingly.
Do you offer printing services? / How do I put your graphics on my joystick?
Unfortunately, due to previous incidents, I no longer offer this service. However, I have researched all the information you need if you are modding your Madcatz sticks yourselves!

What is the process for the image, and what ways do you accept payment?
You can pay using money orders in the mail, or PayPal. I would rather not use concealed cash in the mail if possible.
You pay 50% at the time a sample if presented, and 50% after the image is complete. During the drafting phase, you will provide me all needed information; colors wanted, graphics and stick button templates. I will base my designs off of stick and button colors, as well as the sticks body color. If custom art is going to be created, I will charge accordingly. If I need to find custom art, I will do my best to accommodate your requests.
I will provide you with low resolution sample images before you have to pay the final 50%, to make sure you are satisfied. After you agree and after I receive payment, you will be e-mailed, or mailed the final piece. If there is any mistake in the piece you notice after the final version is sent, I will gladly fix it for no charge. However, I would appreciate it if no major changes are made at this stage; that is what the sample images are for! :wgrin:
