Graphics for custom kiteboard, need advice


Hi guys,

I went through a lot of posts on this and other forums about the board graphics, and still is not clear to me what is the best way of printing on a board that is not PBT.

Due to the large surface of the print, rice paper is not in option. Personally, I think of silk which is screen-printed, but would still like to get confirmation from you.

Is PBT can be used on boards that are CNC 3D cut, or only on a flat surface?

Phree- heads up on the vacuum table- check with some old appliance repair shops and you can usually pick up a refrigarator compress cheap and it will give you all the vacuum you need- i use one on my lathe for vacuum chucking. also if you need any tints or flake let me know have a bunch from when i was laying up squirt boats

still looking for the vids of a wet hand lay up for graphics add in. some guys out of miami/south FLA. had a great vid with graphic add in top and bottom

with resin , infusion or hand lay vac bag stuff polymer or porous would work what ever prints easy and is stable in the resins. avoid opaque resins , 105 west is clear. adhesive print stuff is mostly opaque backing so doubtful if it matters.
