You want to make your own skateboard for the pleasure of creating a beautiful object or maybe to make a very original gift ? It’s fortunate that it is our speciality !
We tell you here how to do it 🤝

Envisage your board

We use laser engraving to make your skateboards. To know what to expect with your image once it is engraved, here are some examples :

With photos, we advise to use a black stained wood base. It will have a stronger contrast. The laser will erase the stained layer of the wood and how you can see, the picture melts into the wood.

- Even with a simple design, the result is spectacular ! Notably because laser engraving spotlight the wood’s grain.
- Every details are perfectly respected

How do I do that ?

2. MAKE YOUR DESIGN OUTSIDE THE INTERFACE

You can also create your design exactly as you want it with your favorite tool (Adobe Illustrator, Gimp,…) and then upload it on the interface.

This way, you might want to use a template :

 

We advise you to create a file in black and white. Cause that’s what laser engraving machines prefer ! If you use shades or colors, we will adjust your file so it is compatible with laser engraving :

Once adapted to laser engraving -> shades are recreated with the rasterization technic (that is, with many little dots)
