What kind of photo looks best printed on wood?
WoodSnap recommends light colored photos (ex: open skies). The less ink that is used, the more the wood grain will show through!
How do you Print a Photo on Wood?
We have spent years perfecting our process of treating and printing on the highest grade plywood. One of the reasons we are the industry's best in wood printing is because we infuse the ink INTO the wood like a tattoo, allowing our colors to remain vibrant while having the wood grain show through. This is what gives our wood panels a very natural and earthy look. We DO NOT use any white ink, so anything white in your photo will be actually be the natural wood color showing through. We also use UV coating in our ink so it protects against sun exposure. Our prints are durable, vibrant and turn your photos into works of art!
What is the difference between a wood print & a photo block?
For wood prints we use birch panels to print your photos. With this process it allows the natural material of the wood to appear through the image in lighter areas giving it a special characteristic, making it one of a kind. No two wood panels are the same so each panel have different grains. This also means the color of your image will achieve a slightly warmer feel to it as well. Wood photo blocks print on premium grade luster photo paper, which is a more traditional print method. This allows for your image color & clarity to remain just how you captured it or uploaded it. Wood blocks are only available in bamboo & black walnut.
What file format do you accept?
The best file format to send to us is a high resolution jpg or tiff. We do recommend photos sent at 300 dpi to ensure a high quality print. No need to worry about cropping the image. We will take care of that for you!
Do You Offer Photo Proofs?
You are able to proof your order by clicking on each image after it has been added to the shopping cart. Please double check the cropping to make sure you are happy with the image size. If you would like a proof emailed by the customer service team, there is an additional $10 proof fee. Please note, production turnaround time begins after you have approved the proof. To request a proof contact us via email or by Phone: 1 (951) 684-3111.
How are you able to print directly on the wood?
We have a team of little, magical elves that use their mystical mind powers to print directly on your wood canvas!
Will my WoodSnap look exactly like my photo/illustration?
It will not be an exact replication. It will look even better! We are printing on wood. The distinct character, blemishes and wood grain of each canvas will meld with your photo creating a one of a kind print. Since we do not use white ink, ANY white in your photo will be the natural color of the wood showing. This gives it a warm, natural and “yellower” tone throughout your photo. Please be advised regarding this and our return policy.
