We take your design and create a steel rule die. We use a press to stamp the design into the surface of the griptape. When applying the griptape, you can choose to pop out the griptape pieces, or leave them in. This is a great way to advertise your brand with a high quality product at a great price.

Our premium griptape consists of silicon carbide grit adhered to a waterproof polymer. We add micro perforations to minimize air bubbles. Our stock program consists of 9" x 33" or 10" x 43" sheets of black griptape packed 50 per box. This program has the fastest turnaround and the lowest minimums.
For more options, we offer a build to order program. The minimums are higher, and the turnaround is longer for this program.
Make sure your art will fit inside the 4" square, and that it's fairly simple (minimize the amount of cut lines). Most sharp edges and fine details won't hold up in the cutting process. A minimum of 1/8 inch is required between cut-lines.
After your graphic is prepared (with a white stroke to indicate cut-lines), place it on the griptape shape in the template to indicate placement.
A large part of our business is International. The shipping for International orders is the most difficult part of the transaction. We can ship using UPS for smaller orders but recommend using a freight forwarder for larger orders. Freight forwarders can ship via ocean freight. Ocean freight costs less but is also much slower. The buyer is responsible for setting up an account with the freight forwarder to handle this type of shipping. Shipping terms are ExWorks. Definition of 'Freight Forwarder'.
If you have an existing die on hand we usually turn orders around in a few days or less, if it is a new design; 2 or 3 weeks. Seasonality and product availability can change these estimates. Check with your rep for actual timelines.
