NEW! 1.25" Birch Wood Photo Blocks
Only at Bumblejax! Our new 1.25" birch photo blocks make for a beautiful eco-friendly stand up display. Hand sanded & stained. Option to hang. Any custom size up to 20x15. Choose a matte or glossy finish depending on laminate type.
Handcrafted Quality - Sanded & Stained
We go the extra mile and hand sand and stain each birch block for a more finished look and better birch protection. We never outsource. All blocks are handcrafted in our Seattle shop.
No Direct To Wood Printing
You may see other wood products out there where the photo is printed directly to wood. The wood grain can be distracting and distort the color. We print to pro grade photo paper ensuring a wide color gamut and exceptional accuracy.

The Bumblejax Difference
Limited Retail Pricing Table: For all pricing go here or upload your image and choose your size. We can do any custom size down to the 1/4" up to 20x15" in size. Additional +15 for hanging option. Metallic paper is an additional charge too and varies from $5-$15. Does not including any discounting or shipping (about $10 per block).
Paper Types: Satin Or Metallic
We offer a Diamond Jet Photolustre paper which is a very nice paper and included in the base price of all our products. While it’s a fine choice for any photo, the metallic paper upgrade (see below) is a terrific upgrade for many photos. The satin/lustre paper is typically recommended with photos where people are the focus (ie. family portraits) as well as softer, less vibrant images.
We offer the best pigment inkjet metallic paper available which is the Lexjet Sunset Metallic paper. This is a nice upgrade for photos that are bold and vibrant and offers a bit more depth and pop to the image particularly when combined with the acrylic product.
Note: We are often asked to provide an image showing the difference between the two, but it’s impossible to capture on a camera. If you’re uncertain, contact us for a consultation and/or consider ordering a couple small paper proofs to see the difference.
If you want the option of hanging your block on the wall, you can choose that during the order configuration process.
Aluminum/Cleat Hang System. The aluminum cleat floats your birch block 1/2" from the wall and provides a highly secure french cleat hang system. Everything is provided to hang including screws and pre-drilled holes in the cleat for the wall. Some customers prefer to use a couple nails rather than adhering the cleat to the wall for easier hanging.
The standard ground shipping price is 10% of the product price with a minimum charge of $10. We have expedited shipping options as well.
Shipping to AK, HI or Canada is 20% of product price.
Shipping anywhere else in the world is generally 35% of product price depending on size and location. Contact us for a quote.
While we take great care in how we package your art, shipping damage can occur (quite rare). Each package is fully insured by us. If any damage occurs we replace it immediately. Just take a few pics of the box and the block. No need to send it back.
