Create a high resolution, rectangular graphic that will cover the entire board.
Find a print shop that has a vinyl printer/cutter and give them your file for printing.
* Many printers will also be able to add a laminate on top of the ink which will increase durability, but it is not necessary.
Use a cleaning solution to remove any dirt or other residue from the top of the board.
Apply vinyl to the board, moving from one end to the other.
* It may be easiest to tape the vinyl down in the middle and only do half at a time.
Use a flat object to smooth out any bubbles as you go.
Gently poke any remaining bubbles with a razor blade and then smooth them out.
Use a razor blade to cut off excess vinyl along the edge of the board
Use a razor blade to remove the vinyl blocking the binding holes.
