Mounting a board that's still in plastic
« on: July 07, 2018, 09:47:52 AM »
So I got this particular board for the wall, turns out it's a limited edition and I have a nice low number so I want to keep it in the plastic because one day some dickhead who doesn't skate WILL pay me a lot for it. Anyone done this before? If so, how?

When you mount a board that wrapped in plastic it doesn't feel quite as good as it would without it, but it's safer for all involved parties.

You can use brackets from home depot or whatever hardware store and make a mounting contraption. Also depends if it's horizontal or vertical I guess,but like El Chino said towel racks would work.

use a needle to make tiny holes in the plastic wrap, and hang it with fishing line or a shoe lace. worked for me.

yeah, how big a deal is not puncturing through the bolt holes, just use a nail to poke enough room for a string or something and hang it on a hook?

Keep it out of a sunny part in the house and away from heat. The light could discolor the inks and the heat would cause the plastic to stick to the graphic, so itíll pull the ink from the board when removed later or leave residue.

You've done this before. Where were you ten years ago when I tried this?

Probably the most basic way would be to put 4 nails, 1 around each side of nose/tail in a way that it will stay in place. Won't look the prettiest but it would work.

Ok, first things first - keeping an item wrapped in cheap shrink wrap that's intended for display is just plain tacky. I was just at Winkle's place in Barcelona and all the boards on his wall were still in half ripped shrink wrap, and it looked so shitty. Do you leave other items you bought in the protective plastic wrap? No. Especially not anything you consider art.

If you're worried about reselling it, and for some reason the buyer wants to pay more for a plastic wrapped board, either take a pic of it before you remove the wrap and then just get it re-wrapped when you sell it so nobody's the wiser, or get the inexpensive bags that fit decks and are much better quality than thin plastic wrap that offers almost no protection. Hang the board as usual. The main thing you should be worried about is that displaying a board in any fashion increases the chance that it will warp, compared to keeping it in a well aligned stack of similar concave decks. I would think warpage is more of a concern than whether or not it's in plastic wrap. I store all my collection decks with foam sheets between them, in boxes... and I alternate the 2 or 3 I have on display every few months.

That's what you focussed on? Winkle wasn't even there, if that helps. I think of that as a Barcelona landmark, it's been in clips etc in which you can see the boards everywhere. Couldn't care less if anyone thinks that dude is noteworthy.
