Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my artwork will look good printed on wood?
Good question. When selecting a photo or piece of art to be printed on wood you should consider the following:
- We do not print with white ink, so any area in your photo or art piece that is white will not be printed
- Lighter colors will be more transparent and show more grain
- Darker colors like black and blues will print more opaque and show less wood grain
What resolution do you recommend per size of print?
We like to have all files to be 150dpi at 100% but we can use files at 75dpi at 100% you CANNOT go lower than this without having loss in quality of your print on wood.
