Board Wrapped Snowboard Tutorial - For the Perfectionist

DIFFICULTY: Medium
DURABILITY: High
COST: Around $15 per square foot (extra $20 for laminate)
SUPPLIES:

  • Blank snowboard
  • High-resolution graphic
  • Vinyl printer and vinyl (or a print shop)
  • Razor blade
  • Flat object for smoothing

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1:
Create a high resolution, rectangular graphic that will cover the entire board.

STEP 2:
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.

STEP 3:
Use a cleaning solution to remove any dirt or other residue from the top of the board.

STEP 4:
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.
