How Digital Printing on Wood is Done

We take your design and print on wood that is prepared with a white glossy surface. The inks are infused deep into the fibres of the quarter-inch wooden board so that it doesn't crack or peel. Your custom wood prints have a built-in easel stand so that it can be set on a shelf or cabinet and is completely freestanding. The back of your print on wood has a silk black finish and your wooden frame has rounded corners.



Care Instructions

Should your print on wood get dusty, all you need to do is clean it gently by hand using a cloth, and if necessary, mild soapy water.

  • Wipe Down
  • No Soak

Design Tips

Remember that your print on wood will go from one edge of the wooden block to the other. There is no border or outer frame, and the edges of the quarter-inch-thick board will be seen with the same silk black finish as the reverse. 

Your custom wood prints have rounded corners which gives them a modern and stylish aesthetic.

The front of your print on wood has a high gloss finish so it will shine beautifully when printed with your designs,.

Frequently asked questions:

What will happen to white areas in my design?

We do not use any white inks, however, we do coat your print on wood with a white coating, so all of the colours of your design will be vivid and bright, and your white areas will show as white.

What is an easel stand?

An easel stand is an upright support that is attached to the back of the frame. It sits at an angle of around 20°. Think of an easel that artists use with the canvas on the front and the leg at the back.

How do I clean my print on wood?

Your digital printing on wood shouldn't need more than a wipe down with a cloth. If it has stubborn marks on it, you can use mild soapy water to dampen your cloth. Please ensure not to submerge your custom wood print.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)

  • GSM ICON

    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are the bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
