Tips in Designing your own Custom Discs and Frisbees

When designing your own custom discs and frisbees, there really aren’t any rules. That’s the beauty of being an artist! You can create anything you’d like and call it art. For some people creating and designing is fun and easy, while for others, it can be stressful and aggravating. The goal of this website, is to make players happy with what they throw. We want Disc Golfer’s, Ultimate Players, and even casual beach throwers to look down at their custom disc and smile with joy, as they throw something THEY have created. So here are some tips in designing your custom disc or frisbee:

Use Pictures

Choose fun photos to upload on to your disc. Your disc will stand out from the crowd with personalized photos. Using our customizer, you can literally upload any photo from your phone or desktop, to your discs! Just make sure they are nice quality and high resolution. If you’re not really a picture taker, not to worry. We have an extensive library available with various photos to choose from or you can choose from the web. Pictures are a great way to customize your disc because it shows your personality and interests. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Personalize Your Custom Disc

Large corporations, and their brand names are everywhere. They essentially control how we buy and what we buy. Custom discs and frisbees give you the opportunity to break away from sporting a brand name. We urge you to create your own brand! Personalize your disc by writing your name on it with our unique font library! Create a logo for yourself using your own initials! The opportunities are endless when you design your own disc. Whatever you do, make it YOURS.

Have Fun with it!

There is no pressure in disc design. You can upload as much or as little as you want to your disc. Have fun and play around with our tools in the customizer. You will be amazed by what your are capable of creating. Design a few and save them to your profile. You can always go back and tweak and redesign. Can’t wait to see what YOU can create!

Custom Discs on the Course

There is nothing quite like playing disc golf with  custom discs you designed yourself. There is something special about personalizing sports equipment. We think it’s better luck to play with something YOU’VE designed. Here are some pro’s in using  custom discs on the course:

No More Disc Mix-ups

Have you ever played disc golf on a crowded course? Have you ever gone to fetch your red Dynamic Discs Fuzion Sheriff only to find another competitor reaching for the same one? It’s actually pretty common for players to have the same discs, after all, there aren’t many disc golf manufacturers in the world. Designing your OWN discs, makes this awkward situation nearly impossible. Creating a custom disc gives you the power to stand out from the crowd. You can design your discs however you want using our customizer. You can even print your name on it! Or, upload a picture of your face on it! However you choose to design your disc, it will be ONLY YOURS.

Intimidate your Competition with Stylish Custom Discs

Imagine walking on to the course. You have a bag full of brand-name discs, all basic colors. Your competition walks on to the course and sets down their bag. They take out discs with their own logo they have created. All of the drivers, midranges and putters have a variation of their OWN logo. They have built their own disc golf brand. Before the game even starts, they have won. Creating your own custom discs and playing with them on the course gives you confidence and definitely some “cool points”.

Be Unique!

Custom Discs allow you to express yourself through art. If you’re not really the creative type, there are tons of options you can use to create a custom disc in our customizer. Having a custom disc on the course will set you aside from everyone else. No matter how you choose to decorate your disc, it will be uniquely yours.

Why I Personalize All My Discs

A Great Day for Disc Golf

It was a beautiful sunny January weekend here in San Diego at Morley Field. My friend and I were having a great day playing some disc golf. Everything was going great, we were at hole 4 and a threw a forehand drive, soon it veered right and went into the bushes. As I ran over laughing to pick up my disc I see a man heading straight in my direction. I knew exactly what was happening here, he had mistaken his disc for mine, immediately I knew I didn’t personalize my disc in any way and by the look in his eye and rage in his step, I knew it would be a tough convince.

How it all Started

When I went to pull the disc out he rudely jumped in front of my face and claimed the disc was his. It was a Pink Latitude 64 Gold Line Ballista. I had just gotten the disc, so like a rookie I forgot to put my name on it or personalize it in anyway. He was apparently borrowing it from a friend who didn’t have a name on it either (of course). I told him that both my friend and I watched the disc from the time it left my hand to the bush, but he wouldn’t budge. He told a long drawn out story about how his friend would “kill him” if he didn’t bring her disc back. He obviously needed this disc more than I did. I told him he could just have it and this is the moment where I decided I wasn’t going to let this happen again. Sure, I could continue to buy popular discs and write my name on them, but what happens when I run into another Kira?disc-golf-blank

Personalize Power

Luckily, I stumbled across Fly Discs and and I knew my personalized disc problems would be solved forever! Fly Discs allows you to completely personalize your disc, which is exactly what I needed. First, you choose your own background color, gradients, patterns and stock backgrounds. Next, you add your own text and photos. You can bet my name and number is clearly printed on all of my discs. Having my own personalized collection doesn’t only make me value my discs so much more but I feel as if I’m throwing them with integrity because I know they are personalized just for me and my name is literally on every shot I make. If you are a disc golf player, you need a to personalize a Fly Disc ASAP!

In this video by Avery Jenkins, he teaches you what different qualities and types of drivers you want when building your bag. The first type of driver is a fairway driver, which fly longer than midranges, are easier to throw than fast drivers and are ideal for learning how to master your power grip. The second type of driver is a distance driver, which are medium speed drivers (9-11), medium speed drivers have a medium rim width, are easier for beginners and where they will be most successful throwing! Lastly, he tells you what he thinks makes up the best qualities in a high speed driver and how to select one!
