UK Laser Engraved Skateboard Decks

NOTE: With the increased interest in my skateboards, I have created a dedicated brand and respective website to be the new home of my laser engraved skateboards and laser cut griptape –
All new designs, commissions and anything skateboarding related will be posted there.

Each and every skateboarder creates and develops their own unique riding style and choosing an appropriate skateboard deck is an important part of expressing that unique style.  These custom laser engraved skateboard decks give the skateboarder an opportunity to create and express their own design, rather than choosing from a catalogue of mass produced decks.

Utilising a laser cutter to etch the underside (and option of the top side) of the deck, allows for single run manufacture here in Derbyshire, UK and opportunity to freely share designs with like minded skaters around the world.

The grip tape can be laser cut to reveal the natural or stained wood grain of the deck beneath.  This is perfect for giving the top side of your board personality, with a wide range of colours.
