Wood Print Finishing Options

Whether you like things bright and colorful, natural and distinct, or vintage and rustic, we've got a finish to match any image you're interested in printing onto a wood canvas.


Bright White Finish Option

Bright White

Inspired by the feedback of our clients who enjoyed the look and feel of a wood print but wanted to maintain the vibrant colors and detail of their image, we now offer the Bright White option.

Bright White finish will not show any of the natural grain through the image, and the natural hue of the wood print is replaced by a white canvas, giving the most true-to-color wood print option.

Since it is ideal for wedding photos, family portraits, and any other image containing large amounts of white, shadow or detail, the Bright White finish is steadily gaining popularity among our customer base.

Natural Gloss Finish Option

Natural Gloss

The most popular option, Natural Gloss finish, works well with almost any image. The natural earthy tones of this finish complement artwork and photographs depicting landscapes, memorable occasions or images with a significant amount of negative space (background and other blank areas).

These images let the natural wood grain show through, creating an added layer of depth that is unique to wood prints. No form of conventional printing allows for the added character and customization that natural wood grain gives. The glossy surface of this finish also reflects light, making your image appear brighter and more vibrant than if it were printed on paper.

Images printed with the Natural Gloss finish will take on a more Sepia tone, giving your wood print an iconic appearance.

Vintage Matte Finishing Option

Vintage Matte

For the nostalgic types, PrintsOnWood has created the Vintage Matte finish with you in mind. Sometimes the charm of a vintage photograph or illustration lies in its rustic appearance, and wood prints give you a way to perfectly recreate these sentimental images in a longer lasting and more durable format.

Traditional substrates with a glossy surface tend to magnify the imperfections commonly found in artwork or photographs with an aged appearance. This makes the final product look like a bad scan as opposed to a treasured keepsake.

Our Vintage Matte option prevents this from happening, absorbing your image beautifully into the wood to give it a simple but captivating homespun appearance. Our Vintage Matte wood canvas works best with images that have an antiquated appearance, such as old Polaroids or images that have been altered with Instagram filters.
