…Infectious makes skateboards?

Infectious Skateboards

Infectious has always made kick-ass gadget skins, wall stickers and car decals, but now they’re expanding out into skateboard decks too with their recent purchase of PopDeck.

The link includes some very unique designs from some of the top artists in the industry right now, and they’re priced so that normal people can afford to add a little style to their skateboarding, or even their wall if the art is just too nice to grind away.

…Infectious ate Popdeck?

Infectious Eats Popdeck

Infectious has always been the place to go for some of the best artist designed iPhone skins, iPod skins, car decals, adhesive wall art and laptop art around, and now they’re the place to go for custom skateboard decks as well thanks to a recent purchase of Popdeck, the former skate deck champion.

Both Infectious and Popdeck are similar to Threadless in that artists can submit designs and then the community votes on the winners, which means each new piece of art is unique and there should be plenty to chose from to match your style.

To get the new and improved Popdeck purchase off the ground, Infectious is also hosting an art contest called the Skate Deck Design Challenge, and if your design is one of the first five to be picked to become a skate deck, you’ll win fabulous prizes that range from $1000 in cold hard cash to a limited edition, never to be sold “Infectious Eats Popdeck” skate deck.

…Popdeck is great for custom skateboards?


Popdeck is “the first design community just for skateboarders”.

Like Threadless, Popdeck lets designers upload their designs to the site, and then users can vote on them to select the winners. Unlike Threadless, winning designs end up becoming limited edition skateboard decks that probably aren’t as comfortable to wear as a t-shirt would be.

Each deck is hand numbered, and if you’re going to buy a board anyways, I don’t see why you wouldn’t want one that looks good and isn’t owned by every kid on the block.
