Default New Never Summer Bases

Here are some 2015/16 Never Summer bases and bases we're experimenting with. Please let us know what you like or what colors, die-cuts, sublimated or graphics you would like to see on our bases. Keep in mind the reason we do die-cut base graphics vs ink/dye sublimated onto a clear base is that the die punch is an integral part of the NS process. We pioneered the use of P-Tex tip fill and use a die-cut to punch out those pieces as well as the nose/tail shape of wood core and elastomeric rubber pieces. So it's natural that we would do a die-cut base. However, as you'll see below we have the capabilities in our top-sheet facility to do a sublimated base graphic. Where you can get more creative with colors/graphics.

2015/16 Proto * Note how you can see the Carbon X's and Perforated Rocker Pad through the glow off the snow transparent US made Crown Plastics base we've been using since 91.

I always love the look of the bold bases that Never Summer uses. That neon green always pops against the black. I'd like to see a darker colored sublimation graphic on the eagle (dark blue, dark grey, or black) with a neon green base.

Keep it up....looks tight.

I love the one with the pines in the eagle. This years Snowtrooper top sheet was one of my favorites.

Stop die cutting your bases get into sublimation printing. One piece bases are SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER!

All 4 of those die/sublimation bases look awesome! That said, I still love the bright fluoro bases too.

This, so much this. Why die cuts? I just don't get it....

Negative of Die Cut:
Puts the board at risk for large chunks of base material coming off the board and impossible to fix when this happens.

Positive of Die Cut:
Nothing.

I don't know anything about that or the process of making a board...but if that's true, I'm curious why they would jeopardize the integrity of the base. Hope we get an answer...
