Printing Calligraphy on Wood
Wouldn't you know that printing calligraphy on wood is the perfect traditional FIFTH Anniversary gift? (that's a pun - I know, it's corny).
It's your anniversary and you're looking for a perfect gift for your husband or wife. Imagine taking your wedding photo, or any photo you love and adding a wonderful love poem, your vows, or your own words and have them written in calligraphy. With all of the advances in technology it's now possible to print your calligraphy gift on wood.
Options Printing on Wood
You may love the natural look of wood, and want you gift to be timeless. It's important to consider what the text and photograph and background will look like when you print on wood. There are two options- either where you'll see the actual grain through the entire piece, or the wood can be "white-washed" where you'll still see the grain, but more of the background colors and image will appear brighter. It's really a matter of taste.
Another option is to combine both effects. Keeping the wood visible in a border around the "white-washed" image gives you the best combination.
There's a keyhole in the back of the wood so all you need is a nail or tack in the wall to hang it. It's ready right out of the box. Or you might want to consider putting your calligraphy wood print on a stand that you can place on your mantle, a desk or shelf.
Printing on wood is a timeless and can go with any style of decorating. It's a unique gift item that I'm sure your recipient will love!
