Tips for hand draw art. (1) Make the art slightly larger than the 9×34” template. (2) Before you scan in the art, make sure you don’t have any board outlines or truck holes in the graphic, or THEY WILL PRINT. (3) One key thing to remember is that low resolution art will print as low resolution. The easiest way to check you art is, after you have scanned it, open it on your computer, your phone won’t work. Zoom in on your art until it is roughly the width of an actual deck, 8-9 inches wide. If you art looks low resolution (pixelated) at that size, it will look nearly the same when printed. (4) If you have any black in your graphic, just know it will not print 100% black.
