    Get Your Shop Backgrounds Noticed on our Personalize Page 

    As BoardPusher.com shop owners, many of you have uploaded your graphics as custom backgrounds as a way of offering customers a way to create their own skateboard graphics. We’d like to remind and show you how you can get your designs noticed on our quick, easy, and recently updated PERSONALIZE A DESIGN page. The best part about this page is that it is now listed on Google Shopping giving you the opportunity to make more sales from your skateboard graphics.

    On the PERSONALIZE page, the customer can select a design and then they are directed to a quick editing page where they can type in a name/message/title into a primary text box and then add more text on a secondary line. Also, if your design is saved as a transparent .png, they can edit the background color. From there they can also move their design into our main designer to select different fonts and text colors, but the purpose of the personalize option is to make designing a custom skateboard graphic fast and painless.

    Here’s how to get your background graphics onto our PERSONALIZE page:

    1. Login to your account.

    2. Click on your shop name.

    3. Select Manage Custom Backgrounds

    4. Upload your background graphic.

    5. Once your design is manually approved by our staff, or you already have backgrounds uploaded to your shop, click Set Text Layout next the design you want to add to the personalize page.

    6. In the designer you will be able to select a font, color, and size for your 2 lines of text. Both lines can be a different font, color, and size. Keep in mind that while a customer will be able to adjust all of these attributes if they choose to move the graphic into our classic designer, the only thing they will be able to change on the quick edit page are the words/messages/etc., so pick colors and placements you think will look good with each of your designs.

    7. Click save. Your custom background has now been added to our PERSONALIZE A DESIGN page.

     

     

    To add another level of customization to your graphic, cut out an area of your design and save it as a transparent .png. This will allow customers to select different background colors for that transparent area on the quick edit page.

    If there are any questions regarding this process, or you think it’s taking too long for your design to be approved, just email info@boardpusher.com for a quick and helpful response.

    THI3D THURSDAY Skateboard Design Contest: Street Art 

    Street_artfacebook_150_res600

    THI3D THURSDAY: STREET ART

    Street art and graffiti art have coexisted and often intertwined with skateboarding for decades and we want to see this balance continue. This month we would like you to design skateboards influenced by Street Art. Tags are okay, but we aren’t looking for some one dimensional sharpie doodle. We would also like to see more image based artwork depicting the bright colors and often far reaching, deeper messages of street art. Just make sure your design incorporates the theme in some way for it to be considered a valid entry.

    All entries must be received by Thursday, May 15th. What’s up for grabs is your graphic printed on a skateboard, $100, your design will be featured in the BoardPusher THI3D THURSDAY shop, and a limited run of 10 decks with your graphic on it available to the public. See past winners here. Check out the BoardPusher.com Contest Division to get started on uploading your entry. For full contest rules and detailed instructions on how to enter head over to http://www.BoardPusher.com/contest. GOOD LUCK!

    Field Report: Featured Decks by Hooked 

    concrete_and_sky_field_report2600

    At BoardPusher.com, we are big proponents of the individuality of skateboarding and the creativity that goes into designing a skateboard graphic. We also get stoked when a clique comes together with a unified artistic idea to develop their crew’s own series of decks. It’s gratifying to be a part of the creative process that realizes a vision, especially when it’s in the name of progressing the skateboarding community.

    Hooked has established themselves as more than a skate crew, but as a skate organization pumping their time, efforts, and earnings back into their local UK skate community. Recently, they filmed their second skate video “Concrete & Sky” which will be debuting this weekend  in Derby, England. To commemorate the event, Hooked has designed a “Concrete & Sky” series for their skate team. This series is now available at BoardPusher.com/Hooked.

    IMG_7195_600

    To find out more about Hooked and “Concrete & Sky” head over to hookedskate.com. A pretty rad extra on the DVD is a spot guide which has mapped out every spot skated in the video. If you’re actually going to be in Derby this weekend, why not check out the event here. Below are a couple of trailers for “Concrete & Sky”.
