How Do I Design My Own Skateboard Stickers?

It’s really easy, just choose the size and shape of sticker you want to design and use our customizer. You can lay out any photos, pictures, images, or text you want. Remember that stickers are not that large, typically most skateboarding stickers feature a distinct logo or the brand name. Complicated or busy designs won’t read well on stickers because of their size, you want people to instantly be able to recognize them. Stick with designs that have large, central elements and strong continuous blocks of color. One of the nice things about our stickers is that you can design your own stickers online for free so you can try multiple designs.

Custom Skateboards as Wall Art

Custom skateboard decks make great wall art for you home, apartment, office, breweries, restaurants and more. They give such a playful, rugged and cool vibe mounted on a wall. Skateboard decks can be positioned horizontal or vertical on your wall and look cool. Here are some important tips to think about when you are designing a custom deck used for wall art:

Choose the Traditional Heat Transfer Park Decks

Our traditional heat transfer park decks are best for wall art. Most of our Park deck sizes listed on the site are available with this method. These boards are made using the traditional heat transfer method on American Maple. The design has a glossy finish and designs on this type of board may scratch easier that the alternative method, but produce a higher quality finish. If you’re creating wall art and not a board to ride, this is the perfect option. We can also give bulk discounts for these types of boards based off of numbers of designs. These are great for promotional giveaways or wall art. We have these in 7.5″ -8.5″ in steep and mellow concave. Please note the boards with mellow concave are stained on the top.

Use Vibrant Colors

Using vibrant colors when designing your deck will really make the deck pop. Dark colors do not transfer well and may print darker than they should. Be sure to check with our customer service if you have a logo you want to use. We will make sure the color quality matches as close as possible! Our priority is making sure you’re stoked about how your custom skateboard deck designs look.

There are plenty of ways to be creative when it comes to your skateboard deck, and we make it easy with our online customizer. Since you are able to fully customize your skateboard on our website, the possibilities really are endless. One rad way to customize that we have been digging lately is putting photos on your board. You can place a single photo, multiple photos, or create a collage of photos to put on a deck. Not sure what type of photo to use? We share some of our favorite ideas and ways to have photos on a skateboard.

Personal Photos on a Skateboard

Photo-adorned skateboard make great gifts as well. Order a board with photos of the birthday boy and he will be stoked on his birthday present. Friends tying the knot? Have a few of their favorite photos as a couple transformed into a keepsake that they can either display or ride down the street. Skateboards with photos of you also make a great holiday gift for your parents. Even if they don’t ride, having something you made for them that you enjoy with your favorite photos is sure to please.photos on skateboard

Photos as Keepsakes

If you don’t want to use photos of yourself or others, consider the endless other possibilities. If you are a photographer, placing on of your original photos on a skateboard is the perfect way to attract attention to your work while creating the perfect way to get around while you are taking photos.

Create A Custom Skateboard for Summer 2020

Summer 2020 is the season for custom skateboards. We might say that every summer (because when is it not time to skate) but this one’s different. Seriously, Minneapolis just announced it’s constructing 20 new skateparks this year, skating is confirmed as a special addition to the 2020 (now 2021) Tokyo Olympic Games, and people are desperate to get some fresh air and exercise during a pandemic. So what better way to upgrade your summer than with a custom skateboard?

Spend Your Summer Skating

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to the skate world, this summer is the time to get out there. Not only is it one of the more socially distanced sports, but you can use outdoor spaces exclusively and never have to set foot inside. Especially with the uncertainty of a pandemic and anxiety of being in crowded spaces, skating is really the perfect pass time to keep you active, out in the sun, and away from crowds.

Impress With a New Custom Skateboard

Custom Skateboard Examples

Custom skateboards will take your summer to the next level. Whatever Skateboards is a small company dedicated to completely customizable skate products. We know your boards are important to you– they’re a personal investment in something you love. We think you should be in complete control of that kind of purchase. From the specs to the design, you can build your board from scratch and hit the pavement with something that is one of a kind. Our products prioritize quality. You can rest assured that you’re designing something that will last. Our boards are all made with high quality Canadian maple wood and high resolution printing that create a crisp image on a sturdy board built to perform. And we don’t just know this from producing them– we ride our own Whatever skateboards almost every day.


 

Don’t wait until the season’s over and winter weather starts to hit. Make some fun memories in the sun this summer with a custom skateboard from Whatever Skateboards.

Everyone Needs a Custom Longboard This Summer

The numbers don’t lie; Americans are spending a lot more time outdoors lately. The pressure from stay-at-home campaigns during the pandemic has roller skates selling out everywhere and people clamoring for creative ways to get some socially distanced sun. “People are fiending to skate,” According to Marshall Reid of All Together Skatepark in a recent Seattle Times article. With streets less crowded and traffic reduced, the timing couldn’t be better to buy new, custom longboards and pick up some new skills with it.

Skating During a Pandemic

As always, we want to make sure everyone is staying safe while cruising around this summer. Make sure to give other skaters and pedestrians 10 feet of space and stay aware of your local regulations around masks and recreational spaces. Outdoor activities are one of the easiest ways to have fun this summer, even while some businesses remain closed and large gatherings pose risk. Nows the time to invest in a custom longboard so you can stay active no matter what your summer looks like this year.

We’re Open During COVID!

Hi Everyone,

We hope everyone is safe.  We have a few notes regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine.

Pandemic Skateboarding with Whatever Skateboards

We Are Open

We are still filling custom skateboard and custom longboard orders during quarantine. We are practicing safe social distancing and sanitary routines with lots of handwashing, face covers, and everything else we can do to keep safe while shipping orders. And, we are not seeing any customers in person. This way, we’re able to continue providing awesome custom decks to the world, and not give in to this virus! Skate or die! (Note: choose skate.)

Skateboarding During the Pandemic

If you do skate during the pandemic quarantine, please remember to cover your face appropriately, and stay 10 feet away from other skaters or joggers in case they aren’t doing the same, and you should be good.  One up side of the quarantine is that the streets are pretty empty, so for skaters there’s a lot less traffic than usual, so that’s a nice little silver lining for the time being.

Safe Delivery Tips

When your skateboard package(s) arrive, remember to treat them with the same rules you would an Amazon package or similar.  When the delivery man arrives, wear a mask to greet him if you need to sign for it, or let him drop it off and walk away before opening the door if not.  Leave the package in the sun for a little while if it’s safe to do so (an hour or two, flip it over one time) right outside your door where you can keep an eye on it where it can stay in the sun.  The sun and wind for an hour is a great way to reduce chance of any germs for starters.  If it’s not convenient or safe to do so, then just bring your package inside and try to set it down near the door, and 6+ ft away from where anyone will be sitting or standing.  Then, remove the packaging and recycle or throw away the packaging outside as appropriate, then wash your hands thoroughly.  That’s the cautious way to accept any delivery, skateboard or not.  Most of all, don’t touch your face after touching any delivery boxes until after you wash your hands.

Production Times

Our production times remain mostly normal, though please allow an extra few days for the delivery companies that may have longer delays.  As with all deliveries right now, some understaffed locations may need longer than normal to drop off the package, but otherwise if you’ve been receiving packages on time from UPS you should be OK to expect it on time.

Stay Safe and Skate On!

Stay safe out there and keep the creativity flowing!

You may have your favorite skate park, shopping center, boulevard or boardwalk but what about creating your own park?! This Summer, we’re looking for people to post the most creative, non-conventional skate trick videos for a chance to win your very own custom skateboard. Here’s how it works:

We want Creative, Never Before Seen Footage!
