Yea that's good,  there good board's it's just the transfers are a cheaper/cheapest  way to put the art on board's it's a buck a pop/board & Ya just run the board with the art in position through a Hot roller & the art is pressed on... I would guess 90 to 95% of skateboard's are done that way...

There are some really cool things that can also be done with the transfers like a layer's of foil like on Bennets board & some others I've seen...

Interesting............

Dear 300hp-david,

Ok & then I will send an invoice to ebay that says that the name of this deck is ORIGINAL BIG FOOT ! Just like on the Dogtown web site ! You dont have to buy it bro ! Make sure you report all the 10 skate shop that sell the same decks called ORIGINAL BIG FOOT !!!!! As I said I have worked for DT for 17yrs now. And we at DT do not consider any of the decks reissued acept for the new PC Tail...that is A reissue. My friend I have been friends with Jim Muir since I was 16yrs old..I'm 46 now ! And Dogtown has been making decks non stop since the 70's.
Thank You
Wendi

Did this answer your question? If not, let the seller know.

Subject: 300hp-david has sent a question about item #150422557376, ending on Mar-18-10 10:45:03 PDT - DOGTOWN SKATEBOARD ORIGINAL BIG FOOT Art WES HUMPSTON
Sent Date: Mar-12-10 09:49:24 PST

Dear dtsskate,

There was a point between when Wes designed this and sold these and now, that Dogtown was NOT in business. This is NOT OG. Hell, the screen type is completely different.

This IS misleading and incorrect.

Next stop, reporting to eBay

1) What was being made by this group 1993-2001.
    Just asking as she says been there 17 years...

2) Its symantics. They say not re-issue, its OG... Well ok I guess
   thats correct. But to me thats like calling todays Mustang OG as if the
   OG version of the 1960s. Someways OG is better as to looks to me.
   The Re-Issue Mustang (LOL) as to horse power, electronics,
   I would think the new Mustang is better. Is it OG, not in
   my book...  ON THE Dogtown site they do call it ORIGINAL so seller
   is being legal IMHO....

3) The re issue dogtown decks as I know them were not being produced till
    after the documentary. At least I did not see them on ebay till
    then... Is that a incorrect statement? If was not made till 2001 then
    its not really OG to me. Its a OG reissue !!! IMHO as a collector....

So what DTS model (s) were being distributed from 1993-2001?
Anyone got pictures or know. Again, she is saying working and producing
product past 17 yrs. 1993-2001, I was not skateboarding or looking at decks.
