DESIGN IT YOURSELF GRAPHICS

Create your own topsheet graphic design from scratch, add or choose your CODA logo branding options, and then send the graphic to us for the fabrication of your custom board.  Upload the finished graphic file to us through the upload page, or send it by regular mail. smiley board       Please carefully examine the content requirements and resources provided on this page to prepare your custom graphic File. Then, while purchasing your board from our online store, choose "CUSTOM" as your graphics selection on the board configuration page. After completing your payment, Paypal will redirect you to the CODA graphics upload page where you may upload your graphic file directly to our server. As files for image printings the size of a snowboard or monoboard may be quite large, your upload transfer may take some time.


Upload / Mail:   After completing your payment, Paypal will redirect you to the CODA graphics upload page where you may upload your graphic file directly to our server.  Snowboards and skis are much larger than a letter-size sheet of paper or photograph, and, accordingly, a high resolution graphics file large enough to cover the top of a board or ski will be quite large, even at 300 dpi.  You may compose your graphic at much higher resolutions, but a 170cm x 25 cm image at 1200 dpi could easily reach gigabytes in size, uncompressed.  With files so large, upload transfers may take some time, even with a fast connection.  If you prefer, you may send a CD-R or DVD+/-R by snail mail, instead.  Contact us for details.

Working on a 300dpi image of this size is not recommended for old, slow computers.
Please Note: While we cannot guarantee exactly hitting pantone colors, we usually get pretty close.  Vector based art is acceptable, as long as it arrives a format we can open and process.

Design elements intended to match the edges of the board will be problematic.
For example, designing a border to run a 2 cm. wide ring along the perimeter of your board will probably turn out poorly.  Plan any text or signage to layout an adequate distance from the edges of the board or skis.  We'll try to review your graphic and advise you of any such oversights.
     Typically, expect a 2-3cm. contraction in the length of your design, and a .5cm shrink in the width.  We recommend designing your graphic 8 cm. longer than your board length, and 4 cm. wider than its span.  Our templates have already factored this change into the board masks and outlines.

Branding: In most circumstances, we ask that CODA name branding appear on the boards and skis we fabricate.  If you are placing a custom topsheet-only order, then CODA branding is not necessary.  You won't be building a CODA board.

Board templates and various samples of the CODA name logo, the CODA symbol, and the CODA carver insignias appear on the template page.
