Bamboo Blocks

High quality print mounted to an eco-friendly Bamboo base

The NITTY GRITTY
Hanging Method

Our Bamboo Blocks have a pre-drilled keyhole on the back side of the finished piece.


Even though bamboo itself is a pretty light material, these blocks have a substantial weight to them, more than some of our other offerings. Make sure your wall can handle a decent amount of weight. At the larger sizes, make sure to use a stud to secure the piece to the wall in your desired location.

About Bamboo

Bamboo is starting to become more prevalent as more and more companies look to eco-friendly materials and processes, and for good reason. Bamboo is a self-regenerating plant – after it's been harvested, it can naturally regrow from it's own roots, and doesn't need to be replanted. Bamboo also doesn't require the use of fertilizer to help it grow and maintain its strength.

File Format & Resolution

We currently accept only JPG files. All files must be saved with an embedded RGB Colorspace, preferably sRGB. We do not recommend embedding any other color space. We do not currently accept Tiff, PSD, PDF or Raw files for production.


All products are printed at 300dpi, so in general you can submit your largest available file, and our printers will interpolate the information. This means that if you submit a file that is 2400x3600 pixels to be printed as a 4x6" print, our printers will pull 1200x1800 pixels to create the print, as this gives you 300dpi. If you are printing that same file as a 16x24", our printers will pull the maximum amount of information available and distribute it across the print size.

Layers of Bamboo create simple yet EXPRESSIVE EDGES for an alternative to a traditional wood frame.

When to choose Traditional Photographic Printing

Photographic Printing is mainly for just that - photos. It’s great for imagery that puts an emphasis on contrast between highlights and shadows. There’s a richness to Photographic Printing that gives the image depth, and can create really bold color if that’s what you’re aiming for.

The Traditional Photographic Process

The key to this process is the paper itself, which is treated with a mixture of light-sensitive silver crystals (pretty cool, right). Our printers project your image onto the treated paper causing the silver halide mixture to form your image. For color images, three layers of cyan, magenta, and yellow combine to form a brilliant, full-color print.

This process is extremely accurate and reliable, which is why it’s often associated with higher-end professional printing services. Chromogenic Prints should hold their original quality for 60 years in normal lighting conditions. As a bonus, because the image is essentially baked into the paper itself, these prints are both scratch and water resistant.

Fine Art Inkjet

High-end Inkjet Printing, or Gicleé Printing, uses a variety of water-based inks to achieve a wide gamut of color and resistance to UV light.

When to choose Fine Art Inkjet Printing

Fine Art Inkjet Printing is somewhat taking over the industry, and a few things stand out. We print on museum-grade, 100% cotton papers that not only have that beautiful organic texture to them, they’ll also last a lifetime. Because Inkjet is comprised of a greater number of base pigments, it offers a wider color gamut than a traditional photographic print.


For those of you who are environmentally conscious, Inkjet uses water-based pigment inks which are more sustainable than petroleum-bases inks.

The Fine Art Inkjet Process

The defining characteristic of Fine Art Printing is the ink and the application process. We use Aqueous Pigment Inks, which is a fancy way of saying water-based inks. Our high-end Inkjet printers utilize up to 10 base colors: the typical Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, with additional Light Cyan and Light Magenta, and a series of Grey tones. With so many base colors to play with, Inkjet Printing can achieve a wider color gamut. In other words, Inkjet Printing can reproduce a larger number of tones on the color spectrum.

As the paper runs through the printer, an ultra accurate head moves across the sheet and lays the Aqueous Inks to create your image. Pigments adhere to the paper and the excess water is evaporated, leaving a higher chroma, or color purity. The Pigment Inks that we use are more durable than alternative dye-based inks. The resulting Fine Art Print has more resilient color and is resistant to UV light. In addition, these water-based inks are more environmentally friendly than petroleum-based inks in other formats.
