What is a Plak That Wood Print?
A Plak That Wood Print is a unique and personalized way to display and showcase your photos on wood. Whether its a wedding photo, a family portrait, or your favorite pet, they all look great printed on sustainable, Made in USA wooden plaks. Different from other photos on wood, Plak That Wood Prints are made up of several planks of wood pieced together to create a planked wood canvas (think pallet or slat wood photo panel). We also offer solid style wood prints in select sizes if you aren’t keen on the planked look. Your image is printed directly onto the wooden canvas in full color adding a rustic and unique look to your favorite photos and memories. Our default printing method leaves out the color white so the natural beauty of the wood shows through on the image giving each piece a unique, natural, and rustic appearance. If you want a more modern look or are afraid the colors won’t pop then opt for our White Background option. You can find this option in the top part of the designer. Just turn it on and off to see the difference! Wood grain is also variable, so no two wood prints are the same ensuring a even more personalized work of art.

How long is your turnaround time?
We hand build and examine each wood print to ensure quality and consistency. Generally once an order is placed it takes 5 – 7 business days (about a week) in addition to shipping time. Shipping time varies depending on where you are located and the service selected, with the longest shipping times being around 7 days (to California). We have expedited shipping available as well. Standard production is 6-8 business days plus shipping, Expedited production is 4-6 business days plus shipping.
Is my photo high enough quality?
It depends. For the best quality print, use an original high resolution JPEG file. Photos taken off of social media sites may not print the best, because these websites actually downsize and compress your images when you upload them in order to save space on their servers. Downsizing and compressing will degrade the quality of the photos in order to create a smaller image size for storage. Use the original file you used to upload to social media sites for the best results. If you must take a photo from Facebook or Instagram, we recommend ordering a smaller sized print, such as a 7″ x 5″ in order to maintain a clearer image.
Likewise, photos texted to you from friends are also downsized, and may not be the ideal print quality. Ask your friend to Airdrop or email the original photos at their “actual size”.
I received my print and it seems a bit discolored. Is this normal?
Don’t like the look of wood grain, or worried about how it may affect your image? No worries! We still have options for you. If you are concerned about the tone of the wood or the natural pattern of the woodgrain affecting the look of your print, you may want to opt for the White Base Layer to minimize the woodgrain and make the colors of your photo appear brighter. Our normal print production does not include white ink, so any white areas of your image will remain the color of the wood underneath. When you opt for the white ink base layer, we whitewash the prints before printing your image, so the coloring of your print will stay truer to its original photo. Try this out next time you’re using our customizer!
Do you have any tips for designing wood prints?
- When designing, ensure your image is stretched to the edges using the Expand / Compress buttons or by dragging from the corner of the photo. If you are worried that its super close just leave us a note in the order notes section and we’ll double check it.
- To ensure your image does not get distorted, stretch your image using the corners of the photo, or use the “expand” button located on the right side of the designer screen. We print your photos exactly as you design them, and are not responsible if they are stretched out of proportion.
- We offer sizes for both portrait style and landscape style photos. It is best to design these types of photos in their respected sizes. If we don’t have a portrait size in a particular size, just rotate your image and we’ll make sure it hangs on the wall correctly.
- Make sure words and text are in from the edge to ensure they do not get cut off when printed.
- Use a desktop computer with a keyboard and mouse with Google Chrome as the browser for the most optimal designing experience.
- Our wood print designer overlays a wood grain texture over your image. Use this to better judge color shifts and variations created by the wood. If you don’t like the color of the overlay then add the White Background option, found along the top bar (upper left hand corner) in the designer!

How do I mount my plak on the wall?
Plak That Wood Prints have supports on the back for the larger sizes, enabling you to set them on top of existing screws in the wall. Or, just put a couple nails in the wall (level of course) and you’re all set! The smaller 5×7 and 7×7 sizes have a slot in the back which allows the print itself to be “hooked” onto a wall nail or drywall screw for hanging and leveling.
