Digital printing on Wood
What Exactly Do You Mean, Print a Photo on Wood?
Believe it or not, we get this question all the time. The answer is simple. To print a photo on wood is exactly what it sounds like – we take digital photos and print them directly on sustainable plywood.
Wood photo prints differ from other methods like photo mounting and dye sublimation printing on wood in that it does not print the picture on paper first and then glue or heat transfer the picture to the wood surface. The picture is literally printed directly onto the wood surface, providing a richer, more vibrant result. Learn more about our prices and read some common on how to print a photo on wood.
Photos Printed on an Organic Wood Canvas
It's all about the grain. One of the coolest features of wood photo printing is how the natural lines of the wood grain show through the lighter colors of an picture or photo. The primary reason for this is that no white ink is used in the printing process, so any white color is replaced with the natural color of the wood.
Plywood is such a cool canvas for printing because every print is unique. Like a fingerprint, no two sheets of plywood have the same grain signature, so every print – regardless if the same picture is used – becomes a unique piece of art. The natural color of plywood also makes for a great frame, and as result we offer our wood photo prints two ways – edge-to-edge with no margin or centered with margin.
