Wood mounted photographs offer a unique, ready to hang, alternative to traditional framing. They are available in a range of sizes from 3x3 inches up through 20x24 inches. 3x3 and 3x4 inch blocks are 3/4 inches in depth and larger blocks are 1 7/8 inches in depth.
I only source the best materials for my photo mounts, right down to the birch wood blocks. I hand mount every block myself, in my Rogers Park, Chicago studio. They are coated with a protective, archival varnish which gives them a textured, painterly feel.
The sides of the blocks and panels are finished in a light walnut stain. If you are interested in a different stain option, please contact me and I would be happy to discuss.

It is always best to mount them the same way, to avoid cropping, however if you would like to explore other options, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Care for Wood Blocks and Panels:
Like any art, the wood blocks and panels can be damaged by excessive handling, dropping them, extreme weather, etc. For proper care, please be advised of the following:
- They should be dusted with a clean, dry cloth. Do not use cleaning products or damp cloths on them.
- I do not recommend keeping these blocks in a very steamy bathroom because it may effect the coating on the block over time. Powder rooms and bathrooms that do not get overly humid are perfectly fine locations for the blocks.
- All of my images are printed on extremely durable, archival Lustre paper and UV protected however, like any art, long term exposure to direct sunlight is not advisable.
