WhiteWall is now printing high-resolution photos on wood.
The print is made directly onto a 3/4 inch thick birch wood taken from a tree in single pieces. That way, WhiteWall says it avoid offsets when printing on wood, even in large formats, and maintains a printing surface with even grain throughout.
Printing is done using a seven-color UV printing process that leaves out white inks, allowing the wood to remain visible. WhiteWall guarantees the image will be long-lasting, using laboriously limed plywood.
Each printed wood piece is packaged in a protective cover cut and seamed by CNC machines.
Prints start at 4x4 inch sizes for around $8 and standard sizes expand up to 36x24 inches for $162.
