so you wanna screen your own boards?

some peeps have been asking me where they can find good resources on the internet for screen printing their wooden planks. below are a couple of excellent sites, where i got my references from. it's easy to screen boards, if you have some basic experience in screening t-shirts or posters. the steps are almost the same except that you have to customise your own frame, if you want one to have a graphic that covers the whole base of the board from the nose to the tail. otherwise, using a simple and rectangular frame, big enough to screen the middle of the base will do. it's also not that difficult to build your own frame if you have worked in a technical lab or wood shop in school. anyway, read and comprehend the sites below. have fun!
if you need more informations about this, please do not hesitate to drop me a line here.

a good buddy of mine, djohan johari, from the band castles, did a stencil of his band's logo on a board. pictured above, is him and the board he painted. what a good paint job, considering it's not completely done yet. check out the process here.

this is one of the few designs that he'll be
doing for a line of decks for his band's merchandise. he will also be collaborating with ironxhanger for the artist series board collection, which will be featuring a bunch of local and regional artivist, whose identities i'll not disclose yet. hopefully they'll be out by the first quater of 2010. more updates about that soon, so be sure to look out for them!

absolutely no introduction needed for these slab from one of the most hardcore skateboard culture magazines that's out there. as usual they're always jammed packed with a whole load of great interviews, reviews, skateboarders and shit! so check it if you have not already!

thrasher magazine th1rt3en - (special photo issue | summer 2009)
antwuan fucking dixon on the cover page! what more can one ask for? this slab is jammed packed with photographs from the era of hardcore skateboarding since it's birth. pick this up now! it also includes a free sheet of stickers!

shiftymag. - may 2009 volume 1 issue #1
a good and slick new skateboarding magazine straight outta malaysia. it's in english language and if you're into transworld skateboarding, skateboarder and the skateboard mag, you'd probably like this publication. though i'm really not into any of those us based magazines to which i compared this publication with, i'm just biased because it's an asian publication. slick photography, layout, reviews, news and interviews. i quite enjoyed the "top 10 greatest skate videos of all time" section in this debut issue. pretty impressive start, i'd have to say.

shiftymag. - june 2009 volume 1 issue #2
another great effort by this english language skateboarders' own and run publication from malaysia. fuckin' slick layout! like i mentioned about the previous issue of this magazine, this shit is impressive! can't wait for the new issue(s)!

the skateboarding revolution issue no. 96
this publication from malaysia has turned more into a street culture magazine more than a skateboarding culture magazine. but all in all, it's still a good read (tho' most of it is in bahasa malaysia). also tons of great skateboarding photography too!

at the most bottom:
sauce #006 and sauce #007
jam packed with a whole lot of underground pool riding photographs,
interesting columns and scene reports. this is a totally quality d.i.fuckin'y hardcore skateboarding publication from portland, oregon and the northwestern scene of the usa in a 'zine format! great stuff!


mall grab.

why do you still skate nike? ian mackaye and dischord records were too lenient on just accepting an apology from them and not suing their asses off! and eric koston's on nike sb's team! fuck this shit! what's this culture coming to? selling out or buying in? you decide.

ironxhanger ©just don't do it! boycott nike!
