The beauty of Erhan’s boards is that you have complete control over what it looks like. No two customer boards are ever the same, so come on, be creative and design a board that you can treasure and be proud of for many years to come.
This page explains all the options available to you. If you are after inspiration, then you take a look at the gallery, Pinterest page or Facebook page. The representative for your area will also be happy to assist you if required. At this time the boards are only available in one size

You can choose the type and colour of your leather. We advise that you select either an 'alligator', 'pebbled' or 'snakeskin' style as they are more resilient to everyday use than smooth leather. It may not be possible to get an exact match for your choice of colour, but we will do our best to source something that is very close and matches the design for your surface.

Here you can be at your most creative. The only boundaries are your own imagination. With the aid of our colour chart (Download pdf [777Kb]), choose the main colour of the surface, the colour of the points, the shape of the points and whether you want them outlined. For a small extra cost you can also choose a logo to further personalise your board. All we ask is that you supply us with a high quality image.
Regarding the choosing of colours, Özlem has this to say:
"Colours are am important part of our lives....you dress in your best colours or paint your wall in a certain one, because it just makes you feel happy and more comfortable - its just the same for your boards. Just think of it in the same way as you would your house and decorate it. If you see colours that make you happy, then your soul may feel more relaxed and your mind more concentrated while you are playing.... and concentration brings success......."
This level of customisation makes Erhan’s boards ideal as tournament prize boards, with many tournament directors and backgammon federations around the world selecting them as their board of choice.
Of course if you have a board that you already treasure and want to give a new lease of life, you can design and order a replacement surface only. Erhan will make you 3 surfaces so that you have a spare, should you mess one up. They are supplied with a video of fitting instructions.
If you are a tournament director or backgammon organisation, you may wish to order 'prize' boards for your tournaments. Logos on the board surface are of course included, but you may wish to consider adding an extra touch of class with the inclusion of a metal logo. These can either be made in brass or nickel or be enamelled in exactly the same colours as your national or club logo. There is an initial setup cost for this service, but subsequent orders are inexpensive.

Custom checker trays
For a small extra cost you can choose to have custom coloured checker trays. This simple addition can really add an extra touch of class to your board.
There is a choice of 6 standard checker colours, but for a small extra charge you can order individual custom ones. You will need to pick a primary and secondary colour from the colour chart for each set of 15.
Custom board bags and covers
Now that you have chosen the board of your dreams, you may wish to make sure it stays that way, by ordering a custom cover for it. These can be made of either cloth, suede or leather. The cloth covers will accept printing of any design you wish. This could be similar to your board design or something completely different. Leather and suede will not accept print, but simple designs can be added by the sewing on of leather shapes.
A briefcase with handle and removable carry strap are also now available in either leather or suede.
Özlem says: - "Covering something is not about hiding a thing of beauty. On the contrary, its like dressing a beautiful woman. As you want to protect something valuable, the cover should also be attractive and of value to you.
I will offer you different kinds of covers and you can also create your dream cover in different designs and colours. "
