We've been burning board dimensions, signatures and more into our wooden surfboards for a while now. Engraving into the wood is so much more satisfying then simply using a pencil. Wood burning gives the writing a sense of permanency and has a real unique look seldom seen on a surfboard.
With those thoughts in mind, we've been dreaming of a Grain logo branding iron for years, and we finally "bit the bullet" and had one made. Carved out of solid bronze and heated until red hot, our custom board logos will now have the timeless look of scorched wood.
Our in-house artist and board builder, Randy Gaetano, is also unveiling some new artwork he has just finished on one of our custom boards. Burned in with a wood burning pen, Randy has done some beautiful detailed artwork. On the board pictured below, he used prismacolor artists markers to fill in the artwork to really bring it to life.
If you're interested in custom artwork on your board, we'd love to design something with you. You can contact Randy directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
