  • Coachella X Sustainable Wood Signs

    If you’ve attended the wild, music-filled, goodness that is Coachella, while you weren’t raging and raving, you might have noticed the giant bottle eating monster, Recylcosaurus Rex or TRASHed Recycling.

    That’s because the annual music festival is taking full advantage of the act to reduce reuse and recycle. This year, they took their sustainability efforts one big step further and redesigned a lot of their signage. Many signs were completely redone on natural grain wood thru-out the venue. This is a great a move because now, their eco-friendly signs can now be reused, year after year

    Those giant set times that we all gaze at anticipating our favorite artists? Completely redone, printed on wood, and posted at each tent.

    Each food vendor sign was made with laser cut out wood letters that will be reused for years to come!

    Large scale maps around the venue were also printed on wood pieces.

    And so was the Coachella boutique sign, which was printed on natural grain wood.

    As much as they try to reuse all the wood signage a few pieces, like set times and site maps, have served their purpose and cannot be reused.  Well not as a site map or set time, these wood prints are given a new purpose.  They become large wood planters for the Coachella next year!

  • Style Rooted In Sustainability

    roof

    Sounds pretty catchy, eh? Well, we're glad you like it. It's Prints On Wood's slogan. Sure it sounds great rolling off your tongue, but what exactly does that mean? We get bombarded by meaningless commercialism daily through every conceivable form of media, and we've learned to ignore it completely.

    Why is that?  That's because if you sit down and actually think about it, most slogans are painfully inaccurate.  Which brings us back to my original question: What does "Style Rooted in Sustainability" actually mean?

    Well, we started this company so our friends would have a new and exciting way to display their favorite memories, in addition to pairing up with some of the most talented Artists & Photographers around the world, allowing us to create elegant eye-catching wood prints... hence the Style.

    We realized we wanted to operate our business in such a way that didn't encroach on the planet's natural resources, especially if we're dealing exclusively in wood products. This inspired us to not only plant thousands of brand new trees, but to join forces with Cuipo in preserving the Earth's already existing Rainforests, reinforcing our already insane level of commitment to the World's natural ecosystems... hence the Rooted.

    Finally, we wanted to power our business with a renewable source of energy that wouldn't have any adverse effects on the Earth's atmosphere on both a local and global level. Five years ago we had our first set of solar panels installed onto the roof of our office building and workshop.  It was a set of one hundred 185 watt solar panels, affording us the honorable distinction of being the very first rebated solar energy project in Riverside, CA. This drastically cut our carbon footprint in half, as well as our utility expenses, allowing Prints On Wood to offer an affordable eco-friendly product.

    A very saucy Mick Jagger once said: "Anything worth doing is worth overdoing." (which we can only hope was emphasized when he put his hands on his hips, flapped his arms like a rooster, while pouting his lips and strutting out of the room.)  Which is exactly how we felt about adding extra solar panels to our room when given the option (in addition to feeling very saucy).  In 2013 we added over a hundred more solar panels.  This time they were more powerful coming in at a whopping 290 watts, which now entirely powers Prints on Wood with 100% green solar energy... hence the Sustainability.

    So to answer the question, what does "Style Rooted in Sustainability" really mean?

    It means we actually care about what we do.
