Brands we supply to.

We are unable to say who we supply for, due to client confidentiality. We've been in business for 10 years, and supply products for brands all over the world.

The custom printed deck option only allows me to input 5 sizes and I have 8, so it's saying I haven't reached the 50 min. and won't let me add to the cart. How do I get around that?

Here is the workaround:

 

1. Add your first 5 deck SKUs to the cart.

2. Go back to that graphic and add your next deck SKUs.

3. The product page would have made you order 50 transfers each time (unless you have enough on-hand to print the order). The cart probably shows 100 transfers because you added decks twice. In the cart you can reduce the transfers to the minimum 50 (or 1:1 ratio if ordering more than 50 decks with that graphic).

 

That should fix it. Remember that any extra transfers that you have made will be prepaid/free on your next order (for 1 year).

Tips for scanned in, hand drawn art.

(1) Make the art slightly larger than the 9x34" template. (2) Be 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 your art is after you have scanned it in, 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 your 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.
