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:
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Custom skateboards will take your summer to the next level. Whatever Skateboards is a small company dedicated to completely customizable skate products.

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.
