Due to the Supply Chain constraints and limited inventory, Custom Skateboard orders have been taking up to 5 weeks to arrive. That means that as of today most skateboard orders will not make it in time for Christmas. Grip Tape is faster if ordered by itself, and stickers are fastest. But, you can always give a gift card for someone to design their own board!

APPLYING CUSTOM GRIP TAPE TO YOUR SKATEBOARD OR LONGBOARD DECKNow that you have your supplies and tools ready, let’s get started applying your new custom grip tape to your skateboard or longboard deck
Step 1: Prep your Skateboard or Longboard DeckSet your skateboard or longboard deck on a flat surface. If you have not already done so, please remove your trucks and wheels from the deck before installing your new custom grip tape. Please make sure to clean your deck before applying the grip tape to the top surface of your skateboard or longboard deck.
Step 2: Position Grip Tape & Check SizingPosition your grip tape for application by placing your custom grip tape on top of your deck to make sure it covers the deck from one end to the other end.
Step 3: Apply the Grip TapeWhen you are ready, peel the backing on your grip tape and apply it to your skateboard or longboard deck slowly while pressing the griptape down into the concave areas of your deck to avoid creating any air bubbles.
Step 4: Score the Grip TapeUsing something with a blunt edge, like an old screwdriver, make a thin line on top of the grip tape around the edge of the skateboard deck
Step 5: Cut off the Excess Grip TapeTo cur the grip tape, take a razor and run it on the underside along the score line you created. Then to finish the rough/sharp grip tape edges, use the excess grip tape to sand down the rough edges of your freshly cut grip tape.
Step 6: Truck Holes for your Grip TapeUsing an old screwdriver, poke a hole into the grip tape from the bottom through the top of the grip tape. Then repeat from the top of the grip tape down. That’s all there is to it! Install your trucks and wheels and you are ready to skate in style!

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.

LOLLLLLLL. No. Haha these stickers can be put anywhere its legal to put stickers. At the Whatever Skateboards HQ we have en entire room where the walls are covered in all the skate stickers we’ve got. We put stickers on our desks, guitar cases, amps, blank skateboards, and pretty much anything else with a reasonable flat surface.

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.
Have Fun with your Wall Art!
Custom skateboard wall art is such a cool way to decorate your space. Have fun with designing! Use colors, backgrounds, texts and upload photos! The possibilities are endless when it comes to designing a deck. If you’re ever unsure of resolution or color quality, you can always reach out to our customer service team and request a proof. We always have suggestions for which board to choose when designing strictly for decorating purposes. Have fun with designing your custom skateboard wall art!
Ready to create your Custom Skateboard?Create Yours Now
As skateboarding has gained more and more popularity over the years, the design of decks has gotten increasingly more creative. 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 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. Or perhaps you have some old photos laying around that hold sentimental value. Putting them on a skateboard is a great way to preserve the memories in a fun and creative way.
