Simply Color Lab Heritage Wood Accordions

These wood block accordion-style prints feature a fine-art paper mounted directly to a ¾-inch block of wood. This way, you won’t pick up the wood grain that otherwise shows through. Available in 6 x 6-, 8 x 8- and 8 x 10-inch sizes with a choice of Heirloom finish (with UV coating and sanded, beveled edges) or Simply Color’s Legacy finish (straight edges).

Price: starting at $111

You can fit two lines of custom text with a choice of 15 design templates (only nine will support custom text, though).
