3-D Monster is Branchin' Out!


Along with awesome art prints, shadowboxes, canvases, collectibles, T-Shirts and decals, we have decided to launch a line of official 3-D Monster skateboards!!! As a skater, this is a true passion project for me and something I've wanted to do for a long time! However, the businessman in me is always wary about over-extending myself, so this will start off as an experiment just to test the waters.

I've done a lot of research, and have been speaking with multiple companies in order to find the highest quality boards for the best price, and I think I've narrowed the field down to a couple of contenders. I'm starting off with a single old-school, coffin-shaped decks with the 3-D Monster logo on the top of the board, and my artwork on the bottom just to test the waters. The coffin decks are pricier, but I really dig the cut, and think that it will fit in with the overall vibe of the site and my art.

I will be offering these for $80-$85 per deck, and $140 for a complete board.

***UPDATE***
The first official design for the first 3-D Monster skateboard has been chosen and can be viewed directly below! I'm going to order one as a prototype to ride and inspect for quality and skatepark performance. If all goes well, I will take photos and video of the actual product and make them available for purchase. I'm not sure if I should do a bulk order or have each one made sale by sale, so if you're really interested in purchasing one, I would appreciate it if you could let me know in the comments section or by emailing me at; threedmonster@yahoo.com. Remember, the more I order in bulk, the lower I can keep the price!

I'm also going to offer the option of applying custom grip tape for an extra charge, or shipping the board without the tape. Also, the size of the 3-D Monster logo may be smaller on the actual board
(The designs below are still in the planning and dependent upon the sales of the premier board)
