BOXWOOD BOARD DESIGNS

History and Inspiration


BOXWOOD BOARD DESIGNS was founded in 2018 by Aaron Holley. It is a result of his desire to bring together his 20 years passion for snowboarding and 12 years experience of working as a senior concept artist and illustrator in the video-games industry, to create art for board sports. This project initially started in 2009. He was unsatisfied with the options available for the artwork on snowboards; so, he decided to start creating his own. Resulting in Boxwood Board Designs. Our focus is continual growth and creating beautiful hand crafted art for your ride. Providing you with not only the highest quality materials when it comes to our vinyl, but also our art prints as well. In addition to having work that will match your board you will have work you can hang on or apply to your walls. 
Our line of “BOARD BARK” is designed for use in the board sports industry. “BOARD BARK” is a laminated premium grade vinyl designed for your board, while “WALL BARK” is a premium grade vinyl designed for your walls. You also have the option to purchase Limited Edition, Conventional art prints, and/or Original works of art.
All vinyl printing and art prints are done in house to ensure you're receiving a quality product that meets the highest standards.
We have a strong commitment to our environment and our local economy. When you buy from Boxwood Board Designs you’re supporting not only our small business but other small businesses in the United States.
