VividHead Products
VividHeads™ are printed in full color with a photo-realistic quality; on our high fidelity six-color Giclée printer. We can print photos, logos, fades, scans, graphics; almost anything you can imagine onto a drumhead! This allows you to have cool graphics and fun exciting colorful backgrounds. We then bond the graphic edge-to-edge to the entire front surface; creating the sound quality of a 1.5 ply drumhead. Each head is protected with a strong UV surface film. Check out examples in our Photo Gallery.


Direct to Drumhead Printing Issues
We do NOT print ink directly onto bass drumheads. Here is why:

Drumhead Options

VividHeads are made with AQUARIAN and Evans brand drumheads.

- Bass Drumhead Sizes
• 16" 18" 20" 22" 24" 26" 28" 30" 32" sizes.
• We can make any of our Catalog VividHeads in any of these sizes; even if they are not listed.
• Yamaha Hip-Gig kits require a tom-tom Head. 16" and 18" tom-tom heads are a custom order item. Contact us for more info


- Other Brands and Regulator™ Drumheads
• We CANNOT use these drumheads to manufacture a VividHead. WHY? because we adhered the images with a press machine (not by hand) Other brand drumheads do not fit into the machine templet and will damage our equipment.
• Regulator™ drumheads have a muffling ring and our machine will damage the drumhead. A Regulator drumhead would also kill the punch sound of the head because it would muffle it too much. After we adhere the graphic, our VividHeads produce a natural muffling system; NO additional muffling is needed.

- Clear Drumheads
• We can use clear drumhead to make VividHeads but your image will NOT be transparent (see through). The image will only be adhered to a clear drumhead..

Light Up Effects
You can light up a VividHead drumhead from the batter side or inside with a light source. The Aquarian heads we use to make VividHeads work best from experience.

- Stock Photos
If you purchase images from a stock photo company, make sure you have purchased the correct usage license. These companies are getting strict on copyright enforcement. Keep in mind that your are advertising your band and that many of these sites DO NOT allow you to use Trade Names, Trademarks, Logos or Service marks on top of their images (a service mark could be your band's name). Royalty free images are NOT free to use anyway you wish. This term is confusing so you must read all of the fine print.

- Get Educated
Read up on Copyright and Trademark law before you start designing your artwork or using images and photo with your works.

- DO NOT copy images or photos from websites
For example, do not take images from Google.com , Yahoo.com or Bing.com . Most of these images are Copyrighted and the quality is normally too small for making large size drumheads or banners
