ColorWare is an industry leader in custom painted electronics. They offer everything from custom painted gaming consoles, controllers, headphones, and computers, to phone cases and speakers.
The Joy Con Classic was a limited run of extra special custom painted Joy-Con controllers, complete with gray straps, designed to look like the original NES!
The vibrant, glossy red buttons burst out from the matte black and gray base, and feel absolutely authentic. It is obvious that ColorWare put an immense amount of effort into making these feel like the original product.
ColorWare was founded on the idea that electronic devices could be more appealing than the standard colors offered by the original manufacturer. ColorWare products are creative and fashionable, giving their customers something unique that sets them apart from all the rest.
The Joy-Con Classic was a limited run, but ColorWare offers a wide variety of different products available for customization. Customizing your own controller is quick and easy! You’re able to select from glossy or matte solids and metallics with a set of pre-made “Designer’s Choice” color combinations available as well.
At ColorWare, quality control is rigorous. Great care is taken throughout every step of the process to ensure the highest level of quality from start to finish. Each ColorWare product is disassembled by hand from the original manufacturer. Once the product is disassembled, all parts are compartmentalized. Then the product is hand sprayed with a base coat. Once painted, It is baked at a low temperature to ensure the item dries thoroughly and evenly. Finally, the product is given an X2 coating that is also hand sprayed. This coating is a proprietary, scratch resistant, liquid plastic. The product is again baked, then polished and detailed and sent back to the production area for reassembly.
Customizing a device comes at a pretty steep cost. The Limited Classic Joy-Con were $200, but a custom Pro Controller is only $129 (which seems like a much better deal). We’ve been using the Joy-Con over the past couple weeks and haven’t found any issues with them whatsoever. ColorWare is an American company that prides itself on quality products. Can’t possibly recommend them more!
