silkscreen or sublimation graphic kits
you don't have a graphics service bureau near you that can print snowboard
materials for you we also offer several optional graphics kits that will allow you to design and print your own
graphics in-house. Printing your graphics in-house can often be much
less expensive than sending the work out, and it offers you the greatest
flexibility in the graphics you can offer on your boards, as you can
easily change designs and print materials any time you want.
silkscreening kits include a variety of slikscreen frames, screen
clamps, a squeegee, a scoop coater and specialized UV lamps to allow
you set up your own screen burning system. The number of silkscreen
frames needed is based on the type of graphics you want to print and
how many colors and color changes per job you want to make. We offer
top quality aluminum frames (not wood), and have vacuum table assemblies
available to allow for the best possible registration of your materials.
These kits are custom assembled for your particular printing needs
and start at less than $500 for logo sized graphics and about $1299
for full sized graphics. contact us for more info
also offer a variety of sublimation kits for full color digital printing.
The least expensive system starts at $1695, and uses a modified Epson
printer with special dye sublimation inks to print the transfer papers
and a logo sized heat transfer press to sublimate the graphics. With
this system you can make graphics approximately 15" x 15"
- It works really well for logos etc. (not suitable for full size
size sublimation systemw start at $9500 for large format printer,
dye sublimation cartridges and ink, and a full size heat transfer
more advanced systems feature 36", 44" or even 60"
wide plotters with higher printing speeds, and "ganged"
printing of several graphics at once. These more advanced plotters
also have optional Postscript RIP softwarewith advanced color correction
features to allow you to better match your colors and enlarge small
size transfer presses start at $6995.
is how it works: The base and core are shaped using the supplied
tools and templates. The steel edges are fastened to the base, and
carefully bent to the shape of the board (by hand). The base is
placed into the custom made cassette, and then resin is applied
to the base. The supplied rubber and fiberglass layers are also
wet out with resin and placed in the cassette. The core is then
wet out an aligned in the cassette. Additional layers are then also
wet out and placed into the cassette. When all of the pieces are
placed into the cassette, the top sheet is carefully laid on top
of the other components. The cassette is then sealed and placed
into the press. When the cassette is correctly aligned in the press,
the pressure is turned on, and the board is left to cure for approximately
8 - 24 hours (or for as little as 15 minutes with the digital heating
option) depending on the resin you use and the temperature of the
the board is cured, it is removed from the cassette. Flashing (excess
glue and materials) are then carefully trimmed from the edge of
the board using the supplied saw. When the flashing is cut off,
the board is then filed and sanded around the perimeter using the
supplied files and tools. (or base grinding machine if your kit
includes one). The base is then filed and sanded using the supplied
files and tools (or grinder) to remove excess glue and structure
the base. Finally, the binding holes are drilled out using the supplied
drill, bits and template, and the holes are dressed using the supplied
bit and tap. Viola!! finished snowboard!!!!
note: While making snowboards using our kits is not particularly
difficult, it helps to have a working knowledge of hand tools, basic
woodworking and or composites lamination. Improper use of the tools
and machinery can cause injury or result in ruined snowboards. Using
the machinery also requires a workshop space with ventilation (a ventilated
fan or at least a window that can be opened) of minimum 200 square
feet. The materials create wood, plastic, and fiber glass dust, and
the epoxy resin system creates irritating vapors (not particularly
dangerous but nonetheless irritating to the respiratory tract).
