Unleash Your Creative Mind

Jab into your originality as a skater and find what drives you to skate. With your passion, designing your own grip tape can become a way to get you back into your roots with skateboarding. Nicknames, logos, graffiti art, personal sketches, brand names, pictures are just simple starters to think about with your custom grip tape. Now you can think of designing both sides of your skateboard and what contrasting colors look best together. The top of the skateboard is something people see first which is a great way to sponsor names or extend your brand to the pros.

Style Your Ride

Getting your name out to the public can be challenging but with custom grip tape you can design fresh logos that attract riders from all around! When you design your skateboard or long board custom designs always look amazing because no one else has seen them before. This way when you’re cruising down hills, riding the pipes, or doing tricks on a rail both sides of your skateboard are visible. Attracting others attention just got twice as easier than before so styling your ride would give your status as a rider ample leeway in the direction of your skating career.

Ahhh That Brand New Custom Skateboard Smell

There’s just nothing quite like that new custom skateboard smell.  Today we got one of our own designs printed on a Perfecto 39 for some serious downhill cruising, and I have to say it came out COMPLETELY AWESOME.  Snapped a couple photos of this beauty before and after putting the trucks on.

Custom Whatever Longboard (Perfecto 39)

How to Create This Custom Skateboard (With Our Whatever Skateboard Design App):

This deck was designed here on the site a couple weeks ago with our board designer app. It took about 15 minutes playing around with settings and effects. Here’s the steps I used:

  1. Backgound (Step 1): using the circuitry background from the stock library in the design app
  2. Upload Images (step 2): uploaded a color paint splatter image found online and the One Giant Media “OG” logo in black and white
  3. Set Some Blend Modes (Optional, While Adjusting any Image): setting the blend mode in the “cool effects” panel on the OG logo and splatter to different options until it looked like this.  Blend modes allow the images to be similar to transparent, but with different modes that make the colors mix in interesting ways.
  4. Added Text (Step 3): “Whatever” Text at bottom

I have to say the pictures don’t do the super crisp and vibrant print justice but it is SO clean with such good resolution the whole image really pops and the board looks amazing.

Here’s a link to this OG skateboard design if you’d like to try to customize it, change it (edit the text to your own or whatever), add to it, or just buy this sweet deck as is – WHATEVER!
