What would it look like if Louis Vuitton made a goalie stick? Probably something like this. And learning how to do it will be one of my simplest tutorials ever.

The first thing you need to decide is what color you want to be your undercoat (the color you want the actual LV logo to be). In this case I chose a light brown. After you dye your head that color, you can place pre-cut decals on the head (after the stick dries).

You can purchase these decals – or any decals, for that matter – yourself. Any decals you ever want to use for a dye job you can get yourself from a graphics shop or custom decal dealer. When you search, you’ll be looking for vinyl decals.

Quick tip: Before doing the dye job please test your decals. Depending on where you get them from, some work very well and others aren’t as adhesive and allow the color to bleed.

Once you’ve placed the decals to your liking on the head of your stick, dye the stick your secondary color – in this case a deeper brown. Stick the head in the freezer for a few minutes and when you take it out, just pop off your decals and you’ll have your custom head. Check out the very simple steps below:

After you’ve dyed your base color, add decals:

    where did you get your decals from. I have tried to find some custom places to do them but they say they cant cut them small enough so I end up doing them with and exacto knife and electrical tape

    I got them cut at a place called driven graphics in arlington VA. i provided the design file and the vinyl and they cut the stickers and pulled it, which means they left just the pattern. A square yard cost me $50! Way too expensive to do regularly.

    Sick dye, I am curious what kind of vinyl you gave them becasue some of the ones I have used in the past stick peel up slightly in the hot water. ????

    I’ve been trying to figure that out for a bit now. I got them from a guy on another lacrosse site, but he doesn’t seem to know what kind it was, only that his dad had enough of it to sell. I wish i could tell you now, but when I find out, i’ll let you know. (or I’ll keep the secret and start selling it myself… just kidding)
