Pumping out the prints this morning. After doing some color optimization, making sure no unwanted lines are sleek in, and setting up the print files, we’re firing on all print heads.
The print operation is not just “hit print” in ski and board production. The setup is extensive. The size of an artwork file can be several gigs so the computer running the file needs to be pretty fit. The time it takes for the average artwork to get to the print stage is 40 hours! And the inks to print a board are in the thousands of dollars just to get started.
Is it a total pain in a$$? Yes. That is a contribution to why most companies outsource. But that’s what we think makes Prospect Rad. We are willing to put in the work to not only match the other skis and boards, but to outmatch them. #madeintheusa
