Level Up Fingerboards
Level Up Fingerboards is a brand new company out of Connecticut, USA that has been just over a year in the making. Our first run of hand-made decks launched on July 2nd along with the official opening of our BigCartel Webshop. The BigCartel page offers our entire line of product including decks, tape, and tuning. Also, I have included a Deck Specs page that really shows off all the features of our unique shape. Reviews and references can be found through the Forum Links below. I am really excited about all of the positive feedback we have been getting from members here as a new company.

The BigCartel Webshop is officially open:

http://LevelUpFingerboards.bigcartel.com

For the first run of decks there are 4 different blanks with maple or walnut top/bottom plies, 6 maple/walnut split ply decks, foam tape and skate grip, bushings, and two different color packs of pivot cups.

Shipping is $2 anywhere in the US and $5 worldwide. All products have their own individual packaging (baggy and card topper) and will be shipped in a bubble mailer envelope for safe travel.

As a new company I would love to hear feedback (good or bad) on any products, site design, or customer service. I am easily reached through PM or email with any questions, comments, or concerns. If you write a review or make a video (unboxing, review, skate session) let me know! I have a dedicated playlist on the Level Up Youtube page to compile any user videos of Level Up products.

Thanks for stopping by!
-Jason

These look great! Keep up the work and maybe we'll see some mellower molds in future? wink

Hey man! I think it would be a huge improvement if you got your hands on some more interesting veneers. The decks doesn't look bad crafted, but maple and walnut is kinda dull in the colour, especially since you only use a nice think coat of lacquer.

Thanks for the compliments guys! A lot of hard work goes into the craftsmanship of each deck and I am always looking for input to help expand the product selection.

- It might be a little while before I can invest in new molds, but I have already started working on different width and length stencils for my current mold. I know that low and mid range kicks are the most popular, which is what prompted me to make my own decks to fit my preference for high kicks.

-Exotic and colored veneer is top on my list for improving my decks. I bought a lot of maple and walnut to start knowing I would use a bunch practicing and evolving my deck making.

FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND = 20% OFF DECKS & FREE SHIPPING IN THE USA

Hey everyone! This weekend there will be free shipping within the US for all Level Up orders in our BigCartel store and decks have been reduced 20% ($8 instead of $10). Give our foam tape a try as well, it was very popular among the Beta testers.

However, I totally understand if you don't place an order because all your money went into illegal fireworks...  cherry

Sale extended into next week:
- Free Shipping (USA) available on all orders placed through Tuesday July 8th
- Decks will stay at $8 for the rest of July

Since I didn't really post about the sale until late in the day on Friday and a lot of people are busy for the holiday weekend I will be extending the free shipping in the US for an extra two days. Being a new company there are only a small handful of people out there who have a Level Up deck (either personal friends, Beta testers, and a few trades). Hopefully by lowering the price below the average cost of any other hand made deck company, people will be willing to give these decks a try.

Thanks everyone for your encouragement,
-Jason

your decks look really good and for $8 i'd feel like steeling from you  wink 
it's just the high kicks that prevented me from ordering one - just preference.
keep it up!

TAPE SALE!!!



-Foam Tape 3pk now $2

This is not China tape, craft foam, or weatherstripping... After extensive trial and error I contacted an adhesive tape manufacturer in North Carolina with a description of what I needed in a fingerboard tape: 1.5mm thick, grippy soft fiber texture, and easy compression. They set me up with a few variations to try and I selected the best of the best to carry as my own line of fingerboard tape. This tape feels good from the minute you peel that backing and wears into a comfy finger carpet for the top of your deck. On sale now at $2 for a 3pk: buy it, try it, and let me know what you think. Obviously I think it's awesome... (or I'd still be looking for a tape that is)

MAJOR UPDATE!
http://LevelUpFingerboards.BigCartel.com

But first... let me make a Recap:
-Check out the post directly above this regarding the $2 foam tape 3pk, there is no other tape out there at this high a quality for such a small price.
-The 1st Release of decks are on sale for only $8 through the end of the month.

NEW STOCK UP ON BIGCARTEL!
http://LevelUpFingerboards.BigCartel.com

"The Dirty Dozen" 2nd Release:
3 new sizes of decks with a Maple/Walnut Split Ply bottom. High kicks, deep concave, with a longer nose than tail in a hi-gloss finish. These decks are all one of a kind and ready to ride. $10 each, plus they come with a piece of foam tape.


CUSTOMER REVIEW!
I would like to give a shout out to Daniel Chua from Singapore for making this great review of one of my decks, bushings, and pivot cups. Go check his channel out on YouTube where he has been posting some shorts he's done at film school. http://youtube.com/convers0211

Thanks for stopping by,
-Jason

Hey, you make REALLY nice fingerboards, but I think a good way to get more sales (in my opinion) is selling some on ebay -- since it seems more of the new people to fingerboarding look to ebay and want a cheaper deck. Also, these people also like higher kicks and a deeper concave so I think your decks would sell pretty well. Just a thought though, you can do whatever you want with your company happy

Thanks man! I've never sold anything on Ebay before but I believe there is a fee on their end for anything you do sell, which is one of the reasons I went with BigCartel (to stay free as a storefront). I will eventually be throwing down the "big bucks" on a mellower mold which will certainly appeal to more people. In the meantime, I'm the guy to go to for "sky high kicks and gully deep concave"   very happy

Thanks guys! Pulled the final batch out of the dye yesterday morning. I'll put up a pic of all the set colors tomorrow once they are done drying. In the meantime, I will be creating a new mold which is set to be low/mid kicks with mellow concave.


#Geometry!
