About Prints on Wood
Prints on wood was founded by Derric Swinfard, Paul Watson, Chris Aultman.
We are a large-format printing company that specializes in creating wood prints for artists and photographers of all levels. Our story begins over a decade ago when we founded a vinyl banner printing company called Monster Media Inc. Since then, we have expanded our printing services into a unique niche of high-quality and fine-art wood printing and print applications.
The idea behind Prints on Wood was originally conceived back in 2007 when we printed our first series of wood prints for the Sea No Evil art show – an art show/fundraiser event that we hosted for 6 years to help support the Sea Shepard Conservation Society’s (SCSS) efforts around the globe. Soon after the art show in 2007 we began printing on wood regularly, everything from custom printed table-tops to POP displays to limited edition art prints for gallery exhibitions. In 2009 we had the awesome privilege to collaborate with Shepard Fairey on some custom pieces for the Sea No Evil art show. As seen below, we did a few custom tables and a handful of bamboo and maple wood prints.
Today, with over seven years to practice and fine tune our methods, we are proud to say that we have perfected the process of printing custom artwork and photos directly on wood. As a result, we have partnered up with some amazing artists and photographers to offer one-of-a-kind wood prints for purchase directly on our website. Additionally, with our “Create your own” wood printing tool, we allow anyone to print their favorite photos or graphics on wood. Simply upload your favorite photo or custom image, select a size, and print!
In an effort to reduce our environmental footprint, we have equipped the entire roof of our building with over 200 solar panels. 100% of the energy we use to power our facility is generated by the Sun. To us, there’s nothing more satisfying than knowing we are doing our best to reduce the impact our large format and wood printing business has on the planet.
Prints on Wood Reviews
• unique selling product
• easy uploading
• no watermarking
• limited audience appeal
• weak support
• set-up fee
Prints on Wood in theory has a lot to offer the art world. In practice it comes down to a limited audience base, and stabled artists running the show. For the general artist looking to get in at this store, it's advised to understand it would be a hard slog to even get a sale. The back end of the store is weak too, and support mechanism is not as quick to respond as one would like.
