File Preparation

Should black and white images be submitted as Grayscale or RGB?

All images should be submitted as RGB regardless of whether they are black and white or color.

What image formats do you accept?

We only accept JPG/JPEG files.

What are your recommended image dimensions?

For optimum print quality we recommend that your images are sized to 300 dots/pixels per inch (dpi). When sizing your image calculate the dimensions (in pixels) by multiplying the Plywerk size by 300dpi.

For example:

Listed Plywerk Size Image Dimensions (pixels)
4x4 1,200 x 1,200 (4x300 = 1,200)
8x10 2,400 x 3,000 (8x300 = 2,400 & 10x300 = 3,000)
12x18 3,600 x 5,400 (12x300 = 3,600 & 18 x 300 = 5,400)


All blank Plywerk panels AND photo mounted prints are made slightly smaller than the stated size in order for us to mount a print and get that perfectly clean edge. We refer to the part of the print that will be trimmed off as the trim or bleed.

If purchasing one of these panels or prints, please do not add any additional trim/bleed to your image. If you want an 8x8 panel, please upload an 8x8 sized print. If you are mounting a blank panel yourself, you’ll need the print to be an 8x8 as well.

All of this means that you will lose a tiny bit of the original image. In most cases, it’s not enough to even notice much of a difference but you should not place anything critical at the very edge of the photo, such as an artist's signature, in-laws’ heads, etc.

Size Trim/Bleed Actual Finished Plywerk Size Example
2.5x2.5 - 8x12 1/16" 2 ⅜" x 3 ⅜" (2.5 x 3.5 minus 1/16" trim on each side)
12x12 - 12x18 ⅛" 11 ¾" x 11 ¾" (12x12 minus ⅛" trim on each side)
16x16 - 16x24 3/16" 15 ⅝" x 15 ⅝" (16x16 minus 3/16" trim on each side)
24x24 - 30x45 ¼" 23 ½" x 23 ½" (24x24 minus ¼" trim on each side)


If your photo has a border or you want to add one, please be sure that the width of the border meets our minimum requirements. Since we mount the images by hand, this helps insure that the border will look even all the way around.

Listed Plywerk Size Minimum Border Width
2.5x2.5 - 8x12 ½"
12x12 - 12x18 ¾"
16x16 - 16x24 1¼"
24x24 - 30x45 1½"

Other Questions

What’s with the cut slots in the back of my wood print?

All Plywerk wood prints come with keyhole slots for ease of hanging and stand slots for standing your wood print upwards. Keyholes are cut in portrait and landscape orientation and stand slots come with a handy wood stand to insert inside the back of the print. Dang, we think of all the details don’t we? Unfortunately, any wood print larger than 11”x14” won’t have the stand slot as it will not hold its weight well unless it’s hanging around on your walls.
