Our holiday gift guide continues with a DIY idea! Make your own split panel using bamboo or birchwood blank panels. It's a simple trick and all you need to do is figure out who you want to gift this too.
With a photo editor or a phone app, simply split your image into two. You want to make sure that it is as best as evenly split for best results. We used the PhotoGrid app to create this great view of Los Angeles!
Using two blank 4x6 bamboo panels, your image will then get transferred as two images, making your photo transform your home through a more modern form of photography!
The holidays are just around the corner and Plywerk is getting ready to take your order for your holiday gifts! Not sure what to get your loved ones? Not to worry! We're dedicating the following blog posts on some of our faves to give to our loved ones! The first of our many favorites is the Magnet Block!
Measuring at 2.5" x 2.5" the magnet block is the perfect gift for family members that are like to put photos on fridges or for office use! It's a perfect reminder of home, away from home! This can also be used to give that modern home decor vibe at home. These blocks are made of thick bamboo. They would make a perfect edition with your Boo Boxes!
The intricate details of Bamboo, gives the block a much more modern look. Order yours today for a loved one, or display your holiday photograph on one of these bad boys! For more trinkets, check back real soon as we begin our holiday gift guide!
A great way to add a modern look to your home decor is using photo frames. We recommend our Maggie bamboo photo frame! The Maggie bamboo photo frame is comprised of course of bamboo wood and uses four magnets and ball bearings to create a one of a kind photo frame.
The magnets and ball bearings makes the frame versatile, so that you may be able to switch out a photo whenever you feel it necessary. Not only can you switch out the photos, but included is a bamboo stand so that you have the option to have on display on your desk or coffee table, or you can always hang it on the wall--the endless possibilities await!
We offer the Maggie photo frame in three perfect sizes and are made using sustainably harvested bamboo. However, we do offer custom sizes (also known as Maggie's older sister Margaret) for those who want to go BIG. The holidays are just around the corner, so order the Maggie bamboo photo frame as a great gift for your loved ones!
“If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.” -- James Herriot.
You love your pet. You live together and eat together and sleep together. You also take approximately 400 pictures of your dog for every 1 picture you have of yourself. Why not take one of those pictures and give it the proper amount of respect? There are great things to do with pet photos. Make your pet a Print on Plywerk.
Show your pride as a pet owner and use that beautiful creature as inspiration to create a real piece of art. If you have a cat, then your pet probably already serves as a lovely sculpture, draped over the back of your couch. But take a digital picture and get her likeness printed and mounted on a gorgeous piece of eco-friendly bamboo. Of course it won’t be easy to choose just one picture. Just pick the best one from last week. Or maybe the 5 best from last week.
Remember. It’s weird and a little creepy to take pictures of a person when they’re sleeping. But when it’s your pet, it’s totally fine. You’re even allowed to hang them on the wall.
Just choose your wood and style of panel, upload your favorite picture of Rags or Molly or Bark Ruffalo to the site, and select a size. It’s so easy. And you’ll treasure it for years to come.
We don’t discriminate here at Plywerk. Get a Print on Plywerk made for your dog or your cat or your mouse or your snake or your otter. Every pet is beautiful. And every pet is worth its very own Print on Plywerk. (But we kind of hope that you don’t order a print of your naked mole rat. Sorry.)
At Plywerk, we take joy in creating art using your own images. You don’t have to be a professional photographer to capture something beautiful. Of course, if you do happen to be a professional photographer, we love to work with you too. That’s why we offer Prodeal Discounts for the pros who walk among us.
If you're an individual artist, photographer, student or design professional who sells or shows your work, you can qualify for our Prodeal discounts. We've also set up Pro Partnerships with Big Cartel, Colourlovers, Zenfolio, and our newest partner, Newspace Center for Photography.
If you’re not already familiar with Newspace, allow us to make an introduction. Plywerk blog readers, meet Newspace Center for Photography. Newspace, meet our dear blog readers.

Okay, readers of the internet, we have some catching up to do. So pour yourself a cup of international coffee and I’ll fill you in on the happenings at the Plywerk Art Store. You remember the Art Store, yes? Perhaps the coffee hasn’t kicked in yet, so you might be feeling a little slow. That’s ok. I’ll refresh your memory. The Art Store is our own gallery of already-mounted art by some of our favorite artists and photographers. It’s the place to go if you’re looking for some awesome art mounted on bamboo panels.
Meet John Eklund. He’s the newest addition to the Art Store. John started out as a portrait photographer, shooting people, weddings, and landscapes. But in 2004 a YouTube video changed his path completely. That’s when he discovered an artist who posted time-lapse cinematography work under the name Mockmoon2000.
Since then, John Eklund has been working his own kind of magic, capturing nature’s beauty and sharing the unique aspects of time through time-lapse video. If you could hang a video on your parlor room wall, you would. But, that seems a little complicated. Fortunately, you can also purchase still photos from his breathtaking collection of work.
John Eklund draws a lot of inspiration from the scenery here in the Pacific Northwest, but he aspires to travel all over the world, in an attempt to tell our planet’s story. We’d like to help him tell that story. So check out the Art Store and peruse his collection.
That’s what we’re here for. The Art Store is a happenin’ place to find incredible artwork from some of the finest artists and photographers we know. Our artists love Plywerk panels because they’re clean and simple. And we happen to think that they’re the perfect way to display a beautiful photo. It’s cool. It’s modern. And, of course, it’s eco-friendly.
