The industry standard for printing custom skateboards is a process known as heat transfer printing. Point along with the majority of custom skateboard manufacturers use this process, which involves screen printing ink and/or digital printing ink in reverse order on carrier sheets of thin plastic. The sheets are then aligned to the deck and run through a heated silicone roller machine that transfers the ink and forms a chemical bond to the decks. This allows for a high quality print on the curved bottom (or top) of a skateboard deck. Point still direct screen prints some custom skateboard decks but we reserve this for small and less detailed prints (this method is less consistent). In-depth explanation of print methods.
