BoardPusher custom board results

boardpusher sample

The custom skateboard that I created last week [Skateboards as a print medium] arrived earlier than expected. Great turn around time with printing and shipping taking approximately 6 days. The custom print job came by way of BoardPusher.com. Now that I’ve had some time to compare the original design and the results before me, I’ve compiled a list of items pertaining to the overall BoardPusher service and board quality.

  • Colors will appear darker than your original design.
  • 600 DPI > 300 DPI
  • Respect the bleed line on the available templates.
  • BoardPusher customer service is top notch – phone support or timely email responses for questions.
  • Graphics are conveniently applied saving you the stress of applying the graphic properly.
  • Carefully shrink-wrapped & bubble-wrapped for protection.

There is no longer any reason to hesitate before creating something original for yourself. Irregardless of your skating skills, a custom board looks kick ass hanging on the wall. Unfortunately, one hanging board makes a wall look off-balance. I foresee a few other custom board orders in the near future. Check out the Flickr photoset for images.

    first off derek, that design is fuckin badass to begin with, i’d probably only have the deck for display, its too nice to grind away. secondly i love finding new services that let me use my art besides your usual print forms. thanks for the cool site.
