3 Things You Need to Know/Ask About Skateboard Griptape


QUALITY MATTERS

 

Quality is simply, “the standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind.” It all goes back to that age old saying, “you get what you pay for.” So I invite you to feel the difference in the griptapes. Please pay attention to the thickness of the grip, the print condition, and carefully rub your fingers across the printed area vs. the unprinted area. What do you feel?


IS IT PRINTED ON WHITE OR BLACK GRIP?

 

You might ask yourself, what is the difference? Let me explain, when you print on black griptape a layer (or many layers) of white ink have to be layed down first in order for the color that goes over the top of it to be seen/pop out. How do you think this will affect the grippiness of your griptape?


WHERE IS IT MADE?
 

Quality, dependability, safety, and reliability. Are these values that you hold yourself to when searching for the perfect product or even skateboard griptape? Griptape may not seem like a product that you would link those traits to, but all of your skateboarding involves this silent collaborator. So when you choose your griptape, will you ask yourself does it meet all of those values?
