    Ski Brand Overlay Stickers to re-brand skis

    Interested to see if anyone has heard of this or has beta on a potential source.

    I've got a variety of skis, some good, some bad, some better than me.
    Problem is, none are in vogue in ski forums anymore.

    So here's what I'm thinking.

    = Ski Brand Stickers =


    Buy, peel, stick
    and voila
    instantly re-brand your current ski into the latest instagram worthy
    fap-worthy
    big $$$
    ski fad trend ski.

    Think it would sell?
    Do you know someone that makes these stickers?

    Pretty sure that only 1 or 2 versions are needed in any given year to make sure I feel like I'm skiing the latest.

    Any help appreciated.
    (No, don't tell me to ski more, get out, exercise or get 'better' at skiing. I just want to look trendy. Thx)

    edit: And also could help accentuate real talent, by re-branding really good skis as Volant Machete's or some other retro-ski from the 1970's 80's or late 90's!!! Perhaps even use some tricky effects to make skinny skis look fat or fattys look skinny, or faux side-cut!!

    Genius. I also propose a Forza color scheme decal set for non-Pivot bindings.

    I imagine everyone on this forum is too young to remember but back in the day you could buy stickers to cover beat up top sheets. Long, skinny, psychedelic or whatever.

    Like those kids who had their moms sew the fake “Original Jams” tags on homemade shorts.

    Popular in the eighties. Well, semi-popular anyway.

    Custom Ski Overlay Graphics

    I really like this idea. Were you able to gain any traction with the correct type of material? Are there any modern day companies that are making custom overlay graphics?

    Let me know! Would love to discuss over the phone.

    Hi RedFlameJs, welcome to TGR! Yes, puregravity ended up selling this idea to Rontele and he has been producing them ever since. You can PM him for more details.

    How'd you get them bindings to float in mid-air like that?
