NHS Distribution Tour – Printing Skate Graphics

NHS Distribution Tour Dave Freil

We recently drove up to Santa Cruz, CA for a full tour of the NHS Distribution facility. This video is the first section of that tour, featuring longtime NHS graphics master Dave Freil. Dave demonstrated much of the printing process for skate graphics and talked about the evolution from original hand-printed screening to contemporary heat transfers and more. If you’re into skate art culture, this video will stoke you out!

We got a full tour of the warehouse and NHS skate museum, we watched mad skate scientists in the R&D lab, we saw tons of vintage product from years past and we even got a sit down interview with Jason Jesse and Emmanuel Guzman. It was a really good day.
