BARC Wood Posters

August 31, 2015

Take your personalized posters up a notch and print your next design on BARC Wood. We created this birth announcement poster and printed it with an inkjet printer onto BARC Birch wood paper. We love it and are certain it will make a great gift.

BARC Wood papers are very absorbent. If printing by inkjet, test the settings on your printer – too much ink forces it to move through the wood fibers. Also, if using an inkjet printer, waterproof inks using pigment for color will give you a better result since the ink will “sit” on top of the wood fibers.
