The staff at Woodinked transforms treasured memories into one-of-a-kind art. They transfer your photos onto high-quality wood canvases, which lend an artistic touch to images with their rich texture and wood grain. To ensure the images remain vibrant, they first treat the wood and then use a light system to penetrate its surface with ink. This process preserves the wood print even in humid conditions, including hanging in bathrooms and secret underground dungeons. They then ship the finished work of art to the owner’s home ready-to-hang.
