Frequently Asked Questions

1.  What is a BoardLam™ ?

A BoardLam is a digitally printed logo / photo / graphic / artwork on a specialty media that works very well with the board manufacturing process.  The specialty media is thin, registers graphics and art very well and becomes transparent when laminated, leaving only your design to show on the board.  BoardLams are meant to be used on new boards that are being manufactured.

2.  Can you print the color white ?
YES!:  We have perfected the technique that will allow us to digitally print with white ink.  You will now see this as a "Premium" Print Style option that you can select for our products.  For more detail on our Printing Styles and Materials please visit this page.


3.  What are FiberLams™ ?
Simply put, Fiberlams are digital prints on Fiberglass.  FiberLams are a cutting edge approach to delivering structure enhancing graphics in laminated product manufacturing.  Our Aerospace Grade, tight woven 3oz Fiberglass delivers unbelievable print quality and ease of installation.  Complex approaches such as full product wrapping and in mold applications are now possible with our FiberLams!


4.  What is a BoardWrap™ ?

A BoardWrap is also a digitally printed logo / photo / graphic / artwork.  BoardWraps are meant to be used on existing, finished boards as a means to apply new artwork and designs to the board.   Think of a BoardWrap as a "sticker" that incorporates any design and can be used on almost any board (surf, snow, skate, SUP, skim, wake and so on).  If your board has a smooth surface then you can BoardWrap it.

5.  What are StompStrips™ ?

StompStrips are tail impact protection for your custom board.  Our StompStrips are printed on a  3oz aerospace grade fiberglass which adds additional strength to your board in this typically high impact area.  When your StompStrips arrive take them to your board-builder to install when your board is built.   We are adding new designs as fast as we can come up with them so check back often.

6.  How long will it take to process my order?

Generally speaking we have your jobs printed within 3 to 5 business days.  Peak Season (Summer) is 3 to 7 business days.  We process our orders in the order that they are received.  Please remember that shipping times are in addition to our processing times.  If you have a job that needs to be completed by a certain date then please try and plan accordingly and get your job to us sooner rather than last minute.

7.  How will BoardLams receive my artwork ?

Our products that you are able to custom order, such as ricepaper prints, Fiberlams, Custom Surfboards and stickers all have file upload buttons on their respective product pages.  You can attach your "Print Ready" artwork to you product order.  If you need to design something or create a print layout you can also do so using our online "Customizer".  You will see links for the Customizer on all products that allow customization.

8. What type of file should I send?

We work with many popular file formats.  Check out our BoardLams File and Upload Requirements to make sure that everything will work out nice.

9.  Can you print stickers ?
YES!  We have the ability to print digital vinyl and cut vinyl stickers.  Please call us for any additional details / requirements.

10.  Can you change the colors of your stock BoardLams designs ?

In some cases we can recolor the artwork for a fee.  Let us know what design and what changes you have in mind and we can provide you with a quote.
