Printed Wall Art, World Map

Wood Wall Art, with custom printing on a wooden slatted surface or on a large flat plank, makes incredible wall art.  Modern decorating often combines rustic with modern or industrial with organic. Wood accent pieces work with almost any design scheme.  Wood wall art is perfect for displaying a favorite photograph, vintage artwork, or a meaningful quote.

Wood wall art can be adapted to any style, from modern to shabby chic.  Artwork is custom and can be distressed or colored with sepia or color highlights to give a more vintage vibe.  Clean lines in full color could complement a modern space.

Custom Dry Fly Distilling bottle boxes

One very important key to successful printing on wood is white ink.  When working with non-white surfaces, we print a layer of white ink before printing the actual graphics.  For the Dry Fly Vodka box project, we printed a red logo onto unfinished cedar wood.  Printing red ink directly to the wood produces a faint logo that lacks the necessary contrast between the logo and background, but by simply adding white ink beneath the red, the logo really pops.

We did several wood wall art test prints with various white ink opacities as well as highlighting and distressing to show what is possible when printing to wood.  A lower opacity will give a more faded look while 100% opacity presents bright color, just as it would appear on any other white surface.  We can print to customer-provided materials as well as the wood slats we stock.

Custom wood panels for Dry Fly boxes

The HP FB500 Flatbed Printer allows us to print custom artwork on a variety of materials of varying thicknesses.  Some of the most interesting pieces have been custom wood signs Spokane.  We can print almost any size wood material, either raw or finished.  We can print to customer supplied materials as long as they’re flat, or we can supply the wood.

One wood sign project was for several lot signs.  We started with half inch thick MDO and router-cut the pieces to shape.  The signs had a straight bottom edge and a curved top.  After we edge-sealed and painted each piece, the custom wood signs were ready for printing.  They were loaded bottom first to get the alignment just right and were run two at a time.

Custom Dry Fly Distilling bottle boxes on raw cedar

For another project, we printed individual cedar blocks of wood.  They were approximately 9.5” x 5” and 1/2” thick.  The FB500 can print on rigid material up to 2.5 inches thick.  When the material is set on the flatbed, the printer head height automatically adjusts according to the thickness of the material it senses.  However, if there are small pieces being fed through, the material might not line up with the sensors, resulting in misgauging.  Running a piece of material through the printer despite an incorrect setting will damage the printer heads and ruin the sign.  If there is ever a misreading on the material thickness, we must override it.

It’s most cost-effective to order custom wood signs Spokane in bulk when using this technique as it takes time and care to get everything set up properly.  For the above mentioned projects, we ran 56 MDO lot signs at one time and 100 cedar signs in the first run.

We can also print large single pieces of raw or finished wood.  Recently, we printed a sheet of raw plywood.  The customer wanted an aged, vintage look for her store sign.  Because we were working with unfinished plywood, the inks were absorbed right into the wood, giving the faded vintage look the customer wanted.
