mm, i did type it all in caps... hahah, yeh thats my old man grumpy fucker steez.

i deal with people all day who don't know how to setup design for process and call themselves designers, or they just say: yup i tinker with photoshop I can do it myself. apologies for snapping into default mode!

good way to save $ if you do actually know how to do this stuff right first time.

hope they come out sweet bro!

as i mentioned, most sign shops will be a able to print and laminate a design to cover your whole board, just setup the design with some bleed to trim off after applying (make it a bit bigger all round). you don't need to use those poxie companys specializing in 'snowboard wraps', there's no difference!

prob get em to use vehicle media, usually easier to apply (air release channels) and should last a while if you clean board well with Isopropyl Alcohol (Iso's also great to clean before you apply any stickers or vinyl btw).

alright, i'm out... sorry if this shit is obvious or you're already educated with it

no worries...i feel your pain. i work in automotive and have to deal with kids wanting to put a 4inch exhaust on their honda civics or mechanics that don't know what a wheelbase is or the difference between diameter and circumference. these are the same ppl that work on your brakes dammit!

thx for the support...guess it's time to dust off the old illustrator 10 :P
