redlude97 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

TXBDan 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?
