Mother’s Day Wood Photos as Custom GiftsCustom gifts are the best route to take when giving your mother a gift for Mother’s Day. With a custom gift, you can design a unique gift that will be a special one of a kind item for mom. She will appreciate the time that you took to make her a gift and will treasure it forever. Designing wood photos may take a little time, but PlakThat.com makes it easy to layout a nice design.
Moms Love Wood PhotosWood photos are a great alternative to canvas prints. They have a different look to them since the photos are prints on wood instead of a canvas. The wood grain on the plak has a more classic feel and has a textured looked to it that would complement a Mother’s home. They also make for nice pieces that she can keep in her office. There are a lot of different sizes to choose from. The larger sizes such as an 11×17 would be great for a home while smaller 7×7 sizes are great for an office desk. The small square 7x7s look great as a set of three. They can either sit on her desk or be hung in a row above her desk.
Wood Photo Design IdeasA friend of mine created a wood photo design for her mom by putting together a collage of photos. This is a fun type of design that you can use to create an album look. You can either use the online customizer tool to upload and re-size images on the plak to create the design, or use a collage program to create a design. If you use a collage program to create the design, you simply just save the design on your computer and then upload it onto our customizer here on Plakthat.com.
Happy Designing from the Plak That team!

Poems as Wood Photo Prints
Another idea for wood photo prints, as gifts for mom, is a poem on a plak. You can leave the design as a cute poem on the plak with simple black text or overlay a poem on top of a picture. The dimensionality and durability of the plak adds substance to the physical part of the poem. Instead of a piece of paper that can be tucked away in a drawer, she can prop the plak up on a desk where she will see it more often. If you are not into poetry, you can always use this same design as a letter to mom.
A Bold Statement Piece
A key to home decor is creating a look that is unique and balanced. Prints on wood can help you create that bold statement piece that will bring a design element into the room. We have put together some tips for you to help you create the perfect piece of wall art to add to your home. There are some basic rules to follow to assure that what you create will be an addition that adds character to the room that it is added to. What is great about PlakThat.com is that you are designing a custom piece that is suited to your home’s need.
Prints on Wood
When designing your prints on wood, you want to select a design that has enough contrast to stand out. If the piece is large, but the colors are muted, than the piece will blend into the rest of the home as an understated piece. Contrast can be created by two ways. You can either create prints on wood with bight bold colors, or you can create a design with a strong contrast between light and dark areas. Both ways are effective when striving to create a strong statement piece. Also, feel free to play with patterns. A large pattern can really add pop. Just avoid adding more than two patterns to the design, or else it may look a bit busy.
When choosing the location to place your prints on wood, look at the big picture. Step back and really look at the room to see where the piece would create the best balance. Placing a large piece next to something really small, like an end table, will just not look right. Above a couch, fireplace, or bed are good locations for large statement pieces. Also look at the colors in the room. You can add colors of the same hues into the piece so that it makes sense in that particular room. And don’t be afraid to take risks! Sometimes a design that might seem too much will be exactly what your room needs.

Custom Made in the USA
All of our plaks are made in the USA. From humble beginnings in a surfer’s garage, we are a growing family business. The owner Wyatt foresees production from start to finish. Each piece of wood that the plaks are cut from is carefully chosen for top quality. The look of the wood is very important, since the textured pattern is a main component of what adds to the rustic charm of each plak. The color white is not printed. Instead it is left clear so that the grain of the wood can show through. This adds more depth to the pictures on wood, by creating a vibrant effect.
PlakThat.com is an environmentally conscious company. We protect the natural environment by making responsible choices during our manufacturing process. We try to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible when creating our product. One major step is making sure that all of our wood is from 100% FSC sustainable sources. This means that all of the wood is sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible, and economically viable manner. We also save the extra pieces of wood from large cuts for smaller plaks and backing so that no piece goes to waste. Our belief in running a responsible business that is both friendly to our customers and the environment is what makes us stand out.
