This is a video showing the process of how high definition prints are applied to skateboard decks. This is the latest technique used for skateboard printing. It’s a combination of inks and additives applied and cured to the carrier sheets. These carrier sheets serve as a holding material for the ink before it is transferred to the deck. This is no vinyl sticker, it is ink formulated to create a chemical bond to the deck. This technique yields the most detailed print available. Photographic printing at better than 300dpi is achieved this way. We did leave out a few steps as this a proprietary (secret) process. We developed this process entirely in-house. The companies that make the machines we use don’t even know what/why/how we use them!
International isn’t easy and it is not cheap! Moving product long distances and across borders will always be a challenge. That being said we have endeavored to have the most cost effective methods that are currently available and we are always looking for better ways.
We regularly ship to European countries, Asian countries like Japan and S. Korea, Australia/New Zealand, S.and C. America, Canada, S.Africa(every once and awhile), and even some Caribbean Island Countries. We have endeavored to have the most cost effective methods that are currently available and we are always looking for better ways. Very small orders like those that are 50lbs or less USPS Priority Mail is usually the lowest. For shipments over 50lbs UPS usually offers a better cost. Fedex is pretty much like UPS, we just have better discounts with UPS that we pass on. If you have a shipment over 200lbs(75decks) we can quote Air Freight. These services usually deliver to most countries in a week.
Ocean Freight (LCL shipments) is the most cost effective but the minimum order is much larger, usually 250 lbs and the real savings start at 1000lbs(usually). Ocean takes much longer, usually a month with all of the loading, unloading, sailing, and time spent at the port. Ocean Freight requires you to set up an account with a logistics company and file certain legal documents (Point Dist does not prepay the shipping cost). This type of shipment (Ocean Freight) requires much more work to process as there are usually more licenses and legal hurdles that an importer/exporter has to deal with.
