Laser Engraved Skate Decks by Magnetic Kitchen

March 28th, 2014 by retail design blog

Magnetic Kitchen is a laser cutting and design studio in NYC. We do all sorts of laser cutting and engraving work for a wide range of applications and clients. Formed from a tight group of friends, Magnetic Kitchen takes pride in pushing the technical and creative boundaries of our industries.

What is a laser engraved skateboard you ask? Laser engraving is a high tech process that uses super powerful light (a laser) to apply art to the board instead of the conventional method of laminating the board with a printed graphic. To accomplish this the laser burns away a small layer of wood that creates an awesome embossed effect that you can see and feel while allowing the grain of the board to show through.

Ever since we started out lasering things we’ve been producing laser etched skateboards for friends and family no matter where our other work has taken us. It has been a long time since we have released new designs, but never fear we have been crafting new designs in the depths of the night. So here is your chance to get them!

All our decks are made in the USA out of top quality 7 ply hard rock maple. For this campaign we are using one size skateboard deck that measures 31.5 x 8 inches (it’s the most demanded). The finished boards DO NOT include trucks, wheels or grip tape. We feel these things have a high level of personal preference and add potentially unnecessary cost for you. If you need help with this, your local skate shop will be more then happy to get you set up and rolling. Some things may just be too good to ride though…
