Grip tape prints graphic ? how ? ?

Hi guys, I'm in college and doing a research at school on technology on several things.

Came across to these grip tape arts for skateboards, see photo.

Was wondering if anyone know what technique is used to make them like that ?

Thank you

    It will be back-printed and laminated, the same principles as membrane keyboard overlays etc., though likely different materials.

    A similar process is used for weatherproof or wear-resistant window stickers etc.

    Or, the backing layer is top printed then a layer of "helicopter tape" applied over the top to protect it.
