As Douk design and build every aspect of our Skis in our small factory in the Midlands UK, having 100% control over every ski we make means we are able to offer you the option for a fully customised pair of Skis. We do all our printing in house, so if you have always wanted to be different and have your very own graphics designs that is something we can do for you at Douk.
If you don't have the facility to create you own design but have an idea of what you want take a look at our Designers Gallery who are on hand to put together the design that you are looking for. Have a look at our custom gallery to see what we have done previously or just get in contact and we can tell you more about it.
Just follow our simple guide and we will get to work building you a new snowboard with the design you want
1. Design Template
We have PDF's of a Ski template for you to use as a guide when designing your pair so you work out where best to place your design, click on the link or email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you one over.
When you do create your design make it bigger than actual ski size by 4 cm longer and at least 2 cm wider . During printing and construction we get a little shrinkage and movement so we want to make sure your design covers the whole ski and there are no blank sections
You send your design in like this, bigger than it needs to be.
Then by the time we finish your Ski, it has all the parts of the design you want on it.
We highly recommend you get the image as high a resolution as possible 300dpi (dots per inch) we have had great results with a lesser resolution, but the higher the better. If the images is not as big as the board size you want but have a high resolution e.g. 1200dpi can be stretched 4x bigger so it is then around 300dpi.
4. File format
We have had images sent in many formats and will do our best to work with what you send. Our preferred file format is Ai as we work manly in CorelDraw and Photoshop. other formats we recommend are PDF's, TIFF's JPG's,
5. Image style
There have been many different styles of images sent in but most popular is vector base images, we have had scans of hand drawings, photographs of paintings, images from stock photo websites and more.
We print in CMYK but what you see on a monitor is in RGB (looks brighter than CMYK) we will always try our best to match the colours of your design but if we are not 100% happy we will send you a printed sample for your approval.
Skis take 3-4 week to make from the confirmation of your order.
