More companies should do wheel designs. I can really only think of Oak and Winkler, and even those designs are relatively basic. I feel like someone should or at least should be able to make some more intricate wheel designs. Kinda like designs on skateboard wheels.
Also, I remembered No Comply did them too, but they're closed now so....
There are prob a bunch more that do/did that I don't know about so let me know

^this

love designs on wheels. Close Up wheels are printed on, but unfortunately the latest gen of wheels are just CNC chinas. A real shame, as the material of previous gens was actually really nice but the construction was poor.

Yes but only one design. Same with Winkler, the have wheel designs, but it's only one. and it's simple I think it would be super cool if wheel companies started specializing in wheel graphics, that way they can put real works of art on their wheels, like skateboard wheel companies do. Plus, who wouldn't want to see really good fingerboarders get pro model wheels?

Agreed, that would be epic.
Then again, you can make your own mini wheels sized stickers... that would be a cool addition to any plain wheels. I might look into it :p

There are Joycult Wheels also. I have seen their swirl wheels too. Which to my knowledge No Comply did first along with graphics. Graphics don't general last very long though given how thin the print is. Abrasive resistance is low with the graphics. I mean, most skaters usually run the graphics inward anyways because nobody really wants a flashy graphic showing. Can look kinda cheesy.

I mean, I see people with old spiral oaks and the design is still pretty visible. Same with older winklers, the design start to look bad until you've had them for quite a while. Plus, if they start to look bad, just flip the wheel.

King Size fingerboards did graphic wheels ages ago. They were peel-on sticker designs that you could submit and they'd print you out various ones for each wheel for a certain price. Joycult/Oak/Flatface should do printed ones as well.
