Graphics on your boards

Postby Dockmonkey1 » Sun Apr 08, 2007 4:39 am

Hi Everyone,
I was just wondering the easiest method for putting graphics / designs on your board. And how do you do it. I've tried painting but I'm not an artist and things turn out looking pretty bad... Stenciling also usually ends up with some sort of overspray getting under my stencil....

It seems like everyone is an artist that builds boards haha.

Is it as simple as printing of a graphic on regular paper and glueing it to the wood then sealing the board with poly??

Lets here your ideas?
Thanks

Thats how I did the graphics on my first board.
Printed the graphics on white sheet of paper, cut it out then stuck in position before adding 3 coats of varnish to finish.
