Normal to feel color transitions on base?

Prob a noob question, but i just waxed my new Sierra Crew and noticed that i can clearly feel the color transitions on the bottom of the board from w here i guess they use different pieces of plastic, etc. Its not huge, but they 're there.

This normal i guess?

the color hasn't changed at all, it looks perfect.

my question is that when i run my hand along the bottom of the board, i can feel where the logo colors (Sierra Crew has big block letters on bottom) change. say from white to green, there is a seem there and i can feel it. is that normal?

You can either have a clear PTEX base and ink a design on the inside surface, or use diecut colored ptex. The diecuts have the advantage of having a deeper more vibrant color

I thought you had a Sierra Crew (see below). Where did the Custom come from?
