Custom Cornhole Boards: Why They’re a Smart Buy

Slick Woody says anytime is time for cornholeThere are many occasions a high-quality set of custom cornhole boards are perfect (weddings, parties, tailgating, etc.) and almost endless, but are they worth the money?

Do you really need a set of boards with unique, eye-catching graphics displayed in stunning clarity and vivid colors?

Do one-legged ducks swim in circles?

The answer to all these questions is a resounding um, duh!

In this article, I’m going to convince you that custom cornhole boards are not only awesome, they’re a smart buy for a whole bunch of reasons which I’m going to breakdown in detail below.  

We’ll be discussing:

  • The quality of custom cornhole boards
  • How much they can be customized
  • Their WOW-factor
  • And how much they cost

The Quality

Most custom cornhole board manufacturers are using high-quality material and craftsmanship to ensure that your boards will last you for a long, long time.

Regulations require at least a ½ inch thick plywood top, sanded smooth so the bags don’t catch on any imperfections.

With a set of custom cornhole boards, the artwork you choose and design will be printed on the top, which automatically ensures a smooth playing surface.

The artwork you design is printed with UV-resistant inks onto laminated wood, then cured with UV light, guarding the image from sun damage.

Graphic designers can help choose and size images appropriately so you don’t have to worry about stretched or distorted images on your custom cornhole boards.

To help you better understand quality, here is a link to our blog article entitled, “The Seven Most Asked Questions about Cornhole Board Sets”.


The Customizability

You can put anything you’d like on a set of boards. Really. That’s all there is to it! Family photos, team logos, your kid’s name, a picture of your cat…hey, we don’t judge.

Many cornhole manufacturers have a team of artists ready to help you design your dream set of custom cornhole boards. These artists can take a vague idea and turn it into a reality, or simply help you polish up a design you already have.

Our graphic team wrote this blog article to help you better understand the steps in creating custom board tops, “Custom Cornhole Board Artwork, Steps to Creating a Unique Board”.

The WOW-factor

In case you missed it, you can put anything you’d like on custom cornhole boards.

Think about how cool that is; for tailgate parties, weddings, or whatever, you can have boards that display something personal and unique.  wedding parties love cornhole games 

These boards can be one-of-a-kind, and that’s pretty darn impressive. Not only would custom cornhole boards be incredible when you’re designing a set for yourself, but imagine the look on someone special’s face when they unwrap a set of boards for their birthday, graduation, or wedding.  Here is our blog on “Custom Wedding Cornhole Boards”.  

Maybe you use the first picture the bride and groom ever took together, or maybe one board is the bride and one board is the groom?  The possibilities are endless.  wedding parties are great for cornhole

Another fun use for custom cornhole boards is a housewarming gift.  Take a picture of their new home and use it.

Anniversary parties are always a fun way to celebrate with custom cornhole gifts.  Use one picture from their wedding day and one current fun picture of the happy couple.

If you’re anything like me, I seem to struggle to find a practical gift for people that is still impressive…I usually just resort to gift cards.  cornhole boards make great gifts

Instead of gift cards, consider designing that friend or family member a set of custom cornhole boards that becomes something meaningful and personal, and that they can use for years and years to come.

In my opinion, cornhole boards definitely beat gift cards, or a mug filled with K-cups, or a scarf, or…well, you get the point.

Thinking that a stock board might accomplish your goal, here is an article on “Custom vs. Stock Cornhole Board Sets”.  This article will help you understand the differences and similarities.


The Cost

Okay, we’ve finally reached the elephant in the room: custom cornhole boards cost more money than standard, already-designed boards.

But that makes sense – you end up with a product that no one else has.

I did some research, and a custom portrait or piece of artwork designed by an artist on Etsy can cost you anywhere from $25 - $600, and on up into the thousands.

At Slick Woody’s, the upcharge for custom artwork costs you $50 on a set of tournament-sized cornhole boards, and that’s essentially a charge for the time and labor it takes to create a unique, one-of-a-kind design.

In my opinion, $50 is a bargain for a graphic designer to work with you and create a piece of personalized art that is then expertly printed on a quality set of custom cornhole boards that are actually functional and fun.

Here is one of our earliest blog articles on cost, “How Much Does A Cornhole Set Cost?”.

Hopefully I’ve become that one friend who always convinces you to buy that shirt you like when you’re out shopping, only with cornhole boards. Seriously, there are so many reasons why custom cornhole boards are a smart buy, and I think you’ll remember those reasons every time you see the look on someone’s face when they open up that meaningful gift, or you get your set out to enjoy with friends and family.
