We can do as much or as little as you’d like when it comes to creating your custom lacrosse head. Just want it dyed? Sure! Want us to dye it, buy the mesh, string it, and break it in? We can do that too.
Below we’ll answer some of the typical questions we get. We’re super flexible, so if you have a unique idea or we don’t address your questions below, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Can you dye any head?
The best heads to dye are brand new white lacrosse heads. We can dye lighter heads darker, meaning we can put black over yellow, or navy blue over light blue, but 99% of the heads we dye are fresh from the store white heads.
What about used heads?
Dyeing a used head is really difficult. Once you scoop a single ground ball, you’ll see that the plastic starts to get scratched and scraped, and not to mention dirty. We can clean off the dirt, but anywhere there’s a scratch may not take the dye, and we won’t be able to apply any designs to areas that are scratched. We really, really prefer brand new heads.
What about mini sticks?
We love dyeing minis, but the only one we’ll work with is the Natureboy Lacrosse line of minis. They’re the only ones that take dye – the cheaper minis are coated in a plastic that won’t change color.
Can you do *insert design idea here*?
What I typically ask people is to go through my gallery on Facebook and Instagram, or even google around to come up with ideas. If you know what you want for a design, sending me a drawing will get us on the same page too. Most of the time I’ll say yes, but if the design is too elaborate I’ll be completely honest with you. We have a vinyl cutter in-house, so we can often do team logos, numbers, names, etc.
Does dyeing void the warranty?
On many sticks, yes. As of right now, only Stringking and ECD will warranty dyed sticks. If we dye a head and it breaks, unless it’s Stringking or ECD, you’re likely out of luck.
What’s the process?
Once we settle on a design, we ask that you either send us a brand new white head or pay up front for us to purchase it. Once we receive it, we’ll need 2-4 weeks to complete the dye job and send it back. All jobs require a 50% up front deposit, with the balance due when we’re done the job.
We have the dye, strings, and most mesh brands in stock.
How can I pay?
We love Venmo, but also accept cash.
Do you string sticks?
All the time – we’ll string a stick whether we dye it or not. We do a ton of local (Southern NH) string jobs for heads that aren’t dyed. Prices for string jobs are on our PRICING page.
Can you make me a custom shaft?
At this time, we don’t do anything with shafts. That said, there are some fancy shafts out there, and we can absolutely dye you a head to match a custom shaft you purchase.
