Here is how you design your own edge tape:
You can get creative and design your own pattern by using our assistant or by using a graphic design program like Adobe Photoshop or Gimp.
If you use a graphic design program, make sure to design your pattern with the following parameters:
length: 502mm (19.76 in)
width: your desired width of the edge tape plus 2 mm (0.08 in)
Resoltuion: 300 dpi
Color mode: RGB or CMYK.
Now you are able to create your design in any way. Our recommendation: inserting the text, symbols etc. just in an area of 40 cm (15.75 in) and leave a space of around 5 cm (1.97 in) each to the right and the left open, except of the background color or background design. Since paddles don’t always have the same circumference, you can thereby avoid that the text on your design will be cut off. You can also measure the circumference of your paddle, just to make sure you have the right width.
After cutting, the final format of your edge tape is 500 mm (19.69 in) x the width of your edge tape. Please see the sketch below for further clarification:
For cutting, please make sure to allow a margin of 1 mm (0.04 in) in the final layout, that is 2 mm (0.08 in) in the design layout.
You are also welcomed to send your ideas, text, symbols, photos, etc. via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. For a small fee of 15 Euros*, we will design a layout for your edge tape.
