Having a custom board built to the exact shape and specifications you determine is something every surfer should do once in their life. Once the design of the board is done the graphic choice can begin and be from mild to wild. From standard glassing over the blank to wild graphics glassed into the board and everything in between. The biggest thing I would suggest when it comes to graphics is give the board builder as much information as possible. The final board is literally a piece of art and if you want it to look exactly like you envision, then spare no details. The images below are what I sent to convey how I wanted the board to look after the shape had been designed and agreed on between both of us.
