Photoblocks are images specially mounted onto quality plywood, fine art products handmade just for you. For printing your images we use our high quality Epson pro lab printer with Epson archival pigment inks. We print the images ourselves, making sure that the images are treated tenderly with care. The wooden blocks are made locally from 15mm birch plywood. After the print is mounted on wood, we cover it with a protective see-through coat. The layer protects the artwork from moisture damage and dust. The protective layer also reduces the artwork from Ultra Violet Light.
Photoblocks can be dusted with a soft, dry cloth. However, the surface can get scratched when in touch with a sharp product. To minimise the risk of scratching, photoblocks should not be stacked directly onto each other. Just like any other form of artwork, photoblocks should be displayed out of direct sunlight and intended for interior use.
Our business was set out with the intention of creating top quality handmade wooden products, which we want to have in our own homes. After extensive research and various product tests and designs, we have finally found a way to create products which will, in normal conditions, stand the ultimate test of time. For best quality results, your images have to be high resolution .jpeg or .jpg files. The back side of photoblocks are machined to reduce the weight of the natural wood and come without any branding on them. This allows you to use our photoblocks to represent your own brand as you can label, stamp or sign it yourself.
The edges of the photoblocks are hand sanded for a beautiful rustic style. This allows the natural wood surface with soft brush strokes to be peeking slightly through the corners even in front view. Photoblocks can be hung on the wall as soon as they arrive. All photoblocks have a simple hanging system and if you wish, we can add a special fastening tape. When you order a photo wall, we will also add a free hanging stencil with your order for simpler use.
The organic birch plywood we use is a natural product. All of our products are locally handmade and not the result of mass production in factories. The edges of photoblocks are hand sanded as well as the protective layer is added onto the wood by hand. This is why every photoblock will always have its unique differences and irregularities, this makes them one-of-the-kind!

“As I wore the bracelet on my wrist it made me really emotional – what a beautiful accessory to have! It reminded me the people that I am grateful for and made me think about my loved ones all the time. It always seems like you never see your loved ones enough…”Triinu Temberg
