  • Mountain High Wood Signage

    This weekend, we were busy making lots of wood signage for Mountain High. Mountain High is Southern California's closest winter resort, and is a great place to visit for the holidays. It's split into 3 different regions - North, East, and West. Each region has its own unique features and offers different activities, but they all contain the same charm.

    This year, Mountain High is offering a reusable Quick-E ticket for visitors without a season pass. With a Quick-E Ticket, visitors can skip ahead of the long ticket lines. Simply activate your card online and you'll be good to go! Visitors with a Quick-E ticket will also save $10 on all purchases. By using this ticket, you even can guarantee your reservation in case of a sellout. Because they're reusable, tickets are also environmentally friendly. How cool is that? mountain-high-signage-e-ticket-wood-signage-prints-on-wood-high-quality-wood-print

    To help Mountain High bring attention to its new Quick-E Ticket offer, we've made large wooden signs to advertise their new promotion.  These signs will be displayed all around in large and sturdy frames to help maintain their shape and appearance. Keep an eye out for them as you explore!

  • Sugar Skulls for Dia de los Muertos

    Dia de los Muertos (also known as Day of the Dead), is an annual holiday that is typically celebrated in central and southern Mexico. This holiday always occurs on the 1st and 2nd of November every year. Dia de los Muertos aims to celebrate the lives of the deceased with fancy foods and festivities that are typically enjoyed in life before death. This event is very colorful, joyful, and celebrated by many.

    Sugar skulls (known as "calaveras de azucar" in Spanish), are used to decorate gravestones of the deceased. Sugar skulls are given as a gift to all - whether living and dead. For the dead, these sugar skulls are placed on a beautiful alter. November 1 is for the deceased children; the following day is for the adult spirits.

    These treats are traditionally made with molded sugar and are decorated with glitter, icing, beads, feathers, and etc. Sugar skulls are designed to look colorful, vibrant, and cheerful.

    To help celebrate the upcoming event, we've created our own sugar skulls. However, instead of being made of sugar, we've printed them on wood! You can hang them or proudly display them anywhere you'd like. They're sturdy, high-quality, and printed with the best type of ink.

  • Coreluv

    Did you know that out of every 11 children in the world, 1 is orphaned? In fact, more than 5,760 children become orphans every day.

    Coreluv has made it their mission to bring hope and love to orphans all around the world. To do this, this organization has partnered with many communities and orphanages around the world. They work with impoverished areas to provide orphans with their basic needs, including: clean water, proper food, healthcare, education, job skills, and a loving home. Many of these are luxuries that orphans cannot afford on their own  - especially ones in impoverished areas.

    Coreluv terms the month of November as "Defend the Orphan Month." Their goal is to provide local churches with creative resources and steps for everyone to contribute to the cause. Participating churches will receive a free welcome it with resources. This year, on November 19, 2016, Coreluv will also be hosting their 2nd annual Defend the Orphan 5 K! This event takes place in Montgomery, Texas and will be a chip-timed trail run. There will also be many other forms of entertainment as well. Everyone is welcome to register!

  • Sports & Action Shots on Wood

    According to Dictionary.com, an action photograph/shot is defined as a still photograph that features the subject in motion or action. These shots are often some of the most difficult types of pictures to capture. However, action shots provide some of the best photographic moments, especially when it comes to sports - which is why they're one of the most popular types of photos taken.

    With sports and other action shots, it's important to follow some key steps in order to take the perfect photos.

    Step 1: Ensure that your camera or phone a fast shutter speed. 
    With action shots, you'll want to be shooting in Shutter Priority Mode. Slower shutter speeds work better for action shots. Remember, your shutter speed will be the key to getting the perfect photo to print on wood.

    Step 2: Check your lighting.
    Ensure that you have the proper ISO setting for various light conditions. This will help your photo come out looking brighter and more clear.

    Step 3: Be quick and ready.
    Things will move fast. In order to get the best photo, you'll have to be quick as lighting. However, don't forget to press down on the shutter button fully.

    Step 4: Take as many shots as you can possibly can.
    There's no guarantee that an action shot will be perfect - especially on the first try.  That's why you should try to take as many pictures as you can. The more shots you have, the easier it will be to find the perfect one.

    Now that you have your perfect action shot, you can make it even better by getting it printed on wood. With Prints on Wood, you're guaranteed to receive high-quality and long-lasting prints. Our prints make great gifts for the athlete in your life. They also make fantastic and thoughtful gifts for family and friends.

    Unlike a traditional canvas, a wood print has a wood canvas that adds depth and character to regular photo prints.  Wood photo prints are rich, vibrant, and have a unique, vintage feel. Since each piece of wood is different, no two prints are the same.

  • Landscapes Photos on Natural Wood

    It's hard to deny the beauty of a natural landscape. Photos of things like boats on the water or of sunsets on the horizon are always breathtaking and eye-catching.

    landscape_ocean_view_wood_print_prints_on_wood_custom_photo_wood_printing

    Why do people take pictures of landscapes? 
    One of the best reasons would simply be to capture a great experience or moment - whether it be from traveling, exploring, or from an everyday view. Many other people consider it a hobby to catch nature in its simplest and most extravagant form. Landscape photos usually do no contain any people, since they're often meant to portray nature as the main subject.

    What are some typical landscape subjects? 
    A great landscape photo can just be one of nature. Forests, oceans, rivers, mountains, and clouds are all great examples of the best types of things to capture. However, some subjects may require a special camera to capture the best photo. For example, underwater pictures are best taken with a waterproof camera.

    Why print a landscape photo on wood grain?
    Printing on wood is the best way to enhance the natural beauty of your photo. Once printed, the natural wood finish adds a richer, more vibrant result to the landscape. The wood grain showing through the photos gives a natural feel and adds a unique look to the portrait. It's the best way to make a good photo appear even greater.

    Photos on wood are also great for decorating, designing, and for adding the finishing touches to your home. Everyone will be sure to appreciate the beauty of the natural portrait.

    Our sign is hand-cut and cut-to-size for the perfect design. It is also printed on eco-friendly plywood. The ink is printed directly on the wood and then UV cured to dry. The natural wooden appearance of our sign is unique and stands out among its plastic counterparts.
