Just finished up printing a short run of skate decks and figured I'd share some process photos:

Awesome!!!

Good thinking with the squeegee. Much easier than building the crazy frames that Santa Cruz used to use.

Nice work, I still have one here of a run I must have printed 20 years ago. That hacked squeegee would have been helpful to me.

Love this!  I was a skateboarder in my former life, still love it today even though I am old and can no longer do it!  Would love to print some, where do you get blank boards, I want to do this with my logo on it.
