Plywerk

On the map since Apr 2015

We've perfected an easy, elegant, and eco-conscious way to turn your memories into a modern work of art without the clunky frame, glass and mat. We will print your photos/artwork and mount it on sustainably harvested bamboo and maple panels. Made in Portland, Oregon by real humans.
