  • Google Indie Games Festival- Award plaques

    Looking for a new way to create a trophy or plaque?  Prints on Wood has a solution - Wood Prints!  Wood prints are an innovative way to present an award that won't be just another trophy sitting on a shelf collecting dust.  Since innovation is what the Google Indie Games Festival is all about, they came to the right place for some awesome award plaques.

    This portrait style wood print was printed on birch wood with a bright white finish which allows the wood grain to show through.  As you can see, this collectible art piece looks so nice on wood, there is no frame needed.

    So what is the Google Indie Festival?

    "GBM (producer of Gamasutra.com and the Game Developers Conference) established the Independent Games Festival in 1998 to encourage innovation in game development and to recognize the best independent game developers."

    "We wanted to create a similar event to Sundance for independent game developers - and that's just what we've succeeded in doing with the Independent Game Festival which has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash prizes (and brought major exposure and a much higher profile) to a multitude of indie and student game developers who have entered."

    For more information about this cool festival, go to www.igf.com.   They have announced the 2018 Finalist that will receive this super cool award.

  • Vintage Prints - A Photo With A Story

    Photographs tell a story.  What the stories are, we may never know, however, we are intrigued by the uniqueness of the images and words they never speak. We have some great vintage photo art prints that would be great conversation pieces to add to your walls.

     

    Museum Wood Print

    This is a great photo image.  Its old, but yet the colors pop. You are drawn to the bold red doors and curious what is behind the glass. This photo image would look amazing in a room full of books or old antiques.

    Cut and Color Wood Print

    I can only imagine the conversations that took place here.  This haunting, yet quieting photo image makes you wonder...where did everyone go?  The bright lime green walls are downplayed by the subtle brown chairs and peeling paint from the walls which appears like confetti on the ground. If you enjoy the beauty of deserted, storytelling photos, this is a winner.

    El Cortez Wood Print

    Old buildings such as this have such stunning architecture.  Everything from the windows to the ledges are so impressive.  This image of the El Cortez hotel would hang beautifully by itself or in accompaniment with other images.  The El Cortez is a landmark hotel that was built in 1926 in San Diego and once was the tallest building in the city.  Now this is a picture that has many stories about it.

    No Vacancy Wood Print

    I love how this photo art image has the rough edges on it which gives it an old vintage look.  The block glass windows and color of the building draw you in.  Photo art can be fun, nostalgic, sad, youthful, angry, haunting, soothing and many other things.  The image may already have a story about it, or you can create a story with the images on your walls.

  • Above the grain

    What makes wood prints so appealing to the eye is the natural wood grain that shows through. This feature enhances the artfulness of one's print that will last for many years.  How do we do this? By printing an image directly on the wood itself...lets take a look.

    This beautiful print was printed on our 100% birch wood in landscape orientation.  Amazing!  The colors show through so clearly and the natural wood grain looks perfect with the couple's natural background, the ocean.

    Not just your ordinary champion trophy here.  This shield was also printed on our birch wood with a vintage matte finish (raw wood finish) and the final touches of cutting it into shape.  I love how the wood grain gives this trophy a rustic, masculine look.

    Here is another stunning wood print that shows off all the details of this country style home.  This image was printed on our hand cut and hand sanded birch wood and they added a natural gloss finish.  I love how the sepia tone meshed with the wood grain gives this custom wood print a vintage look.  Now that you have seen the options available for direct wood printing, you can get started with your custom wood print order.  No two pieces of wood are the same so each wood print truly is a one of a kind. Ready, set, print!

  • Jason Brammer's Open Studio Party

    All photos in this post were provided by Carasco Photography

    Recently we were given the opportunity to produce some custom size art wood prints for artist Jason Brammer. Jason Brammer is a visual artist, painter, and muralist based in Chicago, Illinois. Brammer is well known for surreal paintings and drawings, murals, and site-specific installations. Brammer has been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications. Brammer has also created a large-scale public mural for the city of Chicago, a live painting for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, installations for LinkedIn and Dark Matter Coffee, and concert posters for My Morning Jacket, Todd Rundgren, and Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy.

    Brammer recently hosted an open studio party on April 8, 2017 5-9P.M. The event was an exhibition of Brammer’s original art. New art pieces and prints were displayed for the first time during the event. The party was hosted at their Humboldt Park studio Chicago, Illinois. The event was open to the public and admission was free for everyone. The event was extremely successful with over 400 people who attended the event. Additionally, the event also had an array of festivities that added high excitement to the party. There was beer, tacos, coffee, a dragon cake, dj sets, and a musical performance by Brammer himself! They even built a halfpipe inside the studio for attendees to do some skateboarding.

    We were asked to produce a variety of wood prints for the open studio party! They were displayed and put up for sale at the merchandise booth during the party. The art pieces were stunning and we were so excited to be producing the wood prints for Brammer. We asked how the pieces sold and were told that the pieces were very popular and that a few sold out at the event!

    We have a ton more photos from the event that you must see! Take a look at all the exciting photos below from the event.

    DJ sets were performed by Sky Society.

    A musical performance by Jason was performed involving tribal drum and bass loops layered with lush atmospheric soundscapes.

    We are so happy that we had the chance to take part in this great event!

  • ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BUMBLEBEELOVESYOU

    With a namesake inspired by an inside joke amongst friends about a striped t-shirt from Hot Topic, BumbleBeeLovesYou decided to stop drawing indoors and went outside to start sharing his art with everyone, including YOU, who he apparently loves.

    While everyone is going around town trying to make a name for themselves by slapping bootleg Bart Simpson stickers on street signs, or wheatpasting heavy handed political posters on the side of electrical boxes, BumbleBeeLovesYou specializes in an wholesome style of street art… kids being kids doing kid stuff!

    BumbleBeeLovesYou is like the Bob Ross of street art. His artwork makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, that's why we're bringing him back to Air & Style this year. BumbleBeeLovesYou will be live painting a mural outside our booth, where we'll be giving away free mini wood prints of his work. Hope to see you there! Don't forget, we love YOU too. :P

    Neat, huh? Rogers has asked us for our help in printing this piece on wood, so we helped! The natural wood grain on the birch is a perfect addition to the grainy art style of this print. It creates a more vibrant and adds a vintage feel to the art, without making the colors dull. In fact, the wood elevates the colors! This particular print is framed - and has a bright white finish. Frames can also come in white and is available here for a limited time!

    We also brought this piece to Designer Con 2016. These prints will be available to purchase for a limited time, so get yours today!
