Welcome to Prints on Wood!

SurfExpo 2014 - Wake Awards

Have you ever been to SURFEXPO?  Yeah.. us either, but a few weeks ago some prints on wood were there!  Those lucky wood planks became a cherished prize at the Wake Awards that was held in conjunction with SURFEXPO 2014.   For those of us who weren't fortunate enough to attend, SurfExpo, is the largest industry only trade show held twice a year, every January and September, in Orlando, Florida.


The expo showcases everything and anything related to board sports, i.e, wake, surf, and skate. The expo also holds demo days, fashion shows, seminars, and the Wake Awards, an award that showcases the best in wake over the past year, put on by WAKEBOARDING magazine.


The Wake Awards have been held every September for the past 11 years, with awards going to the best athletes in the sport. Most winners are determined by select industry voting, while others, such as the Indmar Trick of the Year, are selected from videos submitted by the riders throughout the year.


For this year’s award, we were excited to collaborate with WAKEBOARDING magazine to design a trophy as unique as the sport and athletes themselves. This year’s design was inspired by 50’s era television test cards with a modern twist that also incorporated the 2015 Wake Awards branding, along with a distressed version of vintage color bars to add color to the natural wood grain.


We couldn't have been happier with the way they printed on wood, maybe next year we will get to join the wood prints at SurfExpo!
