Wood Photo Prints, Mounted on Wood vs Digital, Print on Wood

Direct printing on wood is exactly as it sounds, the image is digitally printed directly onto the wood panel. But what about the wood grain you ask?

Digital, Printing On Wood

Digital print on wood, also known as digital printing on wood, involves the direct printing of images onto wood panels. Unlike traditional methods, where the wood grain may be a concern, our perfected process ensures that the printed image retains its true colors and feels like a genuine print on wood.

Direct printing on wood offers the same appearance and sensation as a photo mounted print, with the additional advantage of improved durability. Our state-of-the-art flatbed printer, which holds a top national rating, enables us to deliver high-quality prints that rival the crispness of photographs. While photo mounting remains the preferred choice for photographic images, direct printing on wood comes in a very close second. As for graphic or illustrated images, direct printing is the optimal option.

With multiple sizing options available, PLYWERK has the perfect wooden canvas for your custom wood print, and since all of our wooden PLYWERK canvases are cut and sanded by hand in-house, if you don't see the size you need we can always have it custom made with no minimum to buy. All of the wood harvested for our canvases are fully sustainable, meaning once it has been harvested, a replacement is planted in it's place. Once our wood canvases have been cut and sanded with precision, our remnant sheets of wood are donated to Habitat for Humanity, a local organization that builds homes for families in need. We also donate remnant wood within our community, giving wooden canvases to local elementary schools intended for use with future art projects.
