    skateboard background contest

    well ive started printing skateboards, as ive mentioned to some people
    uk sales i buy the boards and get them printed myself ( my dad owns a design company )

    im looking for 3-5 more designs before i start selling to a wider market.

    anyway who ever on mpgh designs the best graphic for a skateboard will be sent a completed version of there board
    if people produce outstanding work, i will offer them a % of PROFIT for the use of there art work. if you find you have a tallent for this, ill offer to promote you own range on my new site for about 10% of each sale or even hook you up with your own site.

    images must be 9 inches by 33 or 33 x 9 ofc and 200+ppi or w/e the name for resolution is. any transparency will not be printed and will remain the light maple colour. when sharing your image upload a smaller version with a watermark, else your entry will not be counted.

    i can provide any regular board size
    i currently have two ways of making them
    one i stick the design to an untreated board and varnish over it then stick the deck tape ect, the other i stick the design to a ready varnished board and stick this plastic sheet shit over the top.

    ive give 2 to this guy i know to see which is better.

    make custom designs not only your logo

    make one abstract and like make your logo different so it can go with the design

    things like that

    just it has to be 9x33 inches allowing for the edges to be removed, as boards curve
