When is my order shipping out?
Is the graphic on the bottom or the top?
Your design will be printed on the bottom of the board (wheels side), grip tape goes on top. If you want graphics on the top, try our custom grip tape!
Who makes the designs that are saved on your site?
The decks saved on our site are USER GENERATED, meaning they were probably designed by someone like you. These designs are saved to our public gallery but they are NOT guaranteed to be good resolution or within our copyright rules and regulations – they may or may not be, depending on what the original author designed. If you are interested in purchasing a previously made deck from our site, make sure it is with-in copyright laws and that it is good quality resolution. You can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unsure. Please be aware that if you do purchase a user generated board, Whatever Skateboards is not responsible for low resolution prints. As stated in our return policy, if you wish to cancel an order beyond 24 hours after you ordered, you will be charged a $20 processing fee to cancel or you can submit a new design for your order with no fees or extra charges.

Does the deck I designed come as an assembled, complete skateboard? Or is it deck only?
The default is deck only. However, you can add grip tape only, or make it a complete, assembled board by editing the product options. Click the “Options” link on the product information page to see the list of upgrades. You will also be able to edit this in your shopping cart. A “complete” board will come fully assembled with installed grip tape, and installed trucks, wheels, and bearings.
For anyone buying a board as a gift, we recommend upgrading your deck to a complete. You can pick “Choose for me” for the truck and wheel options and we will choose the recommended trucks and wheels for the board you picked out.
Can I see photos of decks you’ve already done?
Yes! Check out our Facebook album of Featured decks. You can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1485962264977397.1073741830.1399235833650041&type=3

What else do you sell?

How are the boards made?
Our longboards are printed on a high quality vinyl and finished with a thick coat of water based varnish. We have a special process to seal your design on our boards. Find out how the boards are made by clicking here.. Our Park decks and cruisers are made using a direct print heat transfer method and are matte.
I found a board online that is cheaper. What’s the difference between yours and theirs?
Most likely, a cheaper price = a cheaper made board. The main differences between our boards and the cheaper boards is the quality. Mainly, the decks are good wood. The quality of the wood and the quality of the print ensures a good quality board you’ll want to have for a long time. Our boards are made specially picked high quality wood to give you a solid board that can withstand a lot and perform well. Our process to create your custom board is lengthy and hand crafted. We will not just automatically take your order and let a machine do the rest. Our teams review every single order and produce every order.
I’ve never heard of you guys. Are your boards quality?
What is your minimum order?
There is NO minimum order. That means you can create a design and order it on just 1 board.
Do you sell custom grip tape?
Yes, we do! We sell longboard and shortboard custom grip. Design & purchase here.
Can I purchase in bulk?
Yes, please contact us with details of your order and a quote will be sent asap. Our bulk discounts are typically about 10-15% off of the MSRP found on the website. Bulk discounts start at 10 decks. For larger orders, much larger discounts can be given with a 4+ week processing time.
Can people see or take my design?

Is my image high enough resolution? How will I know if my design will come out blurry?
We recommend using images that are at least 3000px by 3000px for optimal resolution. If the preview on screen is blurry, it will almost definitely be blurry when printed. If the preview on screen is questionable or slightly blurry, it most likely will be blurry when printed. If your image is clear and not blurry at all on screen, it probably will be OK. If you are unsure, you can always email us your image or design and have our design team double check your image before you use it. To check the image yourself, zoom in on the image until it is the size that it will be on the skateboard once printed. For example, if your image covers the entire width of the board, zoom in so the width of the board is 8″. Once printed, your image resolution will look closer to that preview.
Please note that all custom sales are final and once submitted, your product is not returnable.
Will my design be on the top or bottom of the board? Can I put it on either side?
Your design will go on the bottom of the board. The top will be wood or have grip tape installed if you add it on. We are able to print on both the top and bottom if you’d like. We do have clear grip tape for our short boards and can apply clear grip tape on request. To add a top image to your board, add this product to your cart: click here. Once purchased, email us a link to the design you’d like on the top of the board: firstname.lastname@example.org. We also can print a custom design on grip tape for both longboards and shortboards. If you purchase a custom deck and custom grip in the same transaction, we’ll make sure to install your custom grip tape on the deck in the same order.
What is your return policy?
Please view our return policy here: Return policy. Because all of our boards are custom made, we do not accept returns if your design is low resolution, has typos, or if you’ve changed your mind on the design. You can always email us to check your design, including print resolution, before you order. Email us a link to your design or your design number.
If your order has already started processing and you’d like to change the design, we may be available to change the design with a $20 design change fee.
While we inspect each board before it ships out to you, occasionally boards will be damaged during processing or shipping. When you receive your order, please inspect it to make sure it has your design and there are no damages. You have 5 days from when the board was delivered to report any damage. If you do find any damage, please take a picture and send it to email@example.com. We will gladly replace any damaged boards. Otherwise, all custom sales are final.
If you are not satisfied with the quality of your custom print, please send us an email with your order number, the reason you are not satisfied, and a photo of your print. We must receive this within 5 days from when your product was delivered. Once received, our customer service team will review the issue and accepted on a case by case basis.
If your order is delayed due to any reason and not processed, we can cancel and refund your order up to 60 days. After 60 days, all sales are final and you will receive store credit.
