Bamboo with gloss

Excited to have a variation of a favorite product available. Gloss finish to bamboo board, as shown on the sample below. The gloss infusion adds lots of shine to the image, similar to the high gloss coating used on some of my aluminum pieces. The board is available in 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4″ thickness and the 1/4″ board is shown below.

Artwork printed on fabric can be made into an acoustic panel. A functional and truly unique idea as an headboard as well. Here are some other ideas for complimenting your bed with artwork

using white space

White space in a picture traditionally shows up as white  from the canvas or art paper that it is printed on.  When using different substrates for artwork, the negative or white space allows the material it is printed on to show through. It adds a textural and visual element to the image and is a unique option for certain images.

Below are some images as a traditional print shown next to the image printed direct to a wood or metal panel without white ink.

New options for bamboo

The darker bamboo panel provides a alternative to the natural, lighter bamboo board. The newest sample includes bevelled edges showcasing the interesting edges of the board. Pictures can be mounted to the board and protective with finish so there is no need for glass or frame.  1/2″ panels are new too and provide a lighter option for larger sizes.
