Has anyone ever tried this? I'd like to print onto something thin like veneer.
i'm assuming u're using an inkjet printer?
Screen printing is probably the best way to go.
I SAW YOU
I have run balsa wood through my inkjet - fuckin cool
Definitely not using an inkjet. I thought about possibly laser etching the wood, but I'm unsure of what thickness veneer would be needed.
Has anyone seen any good paper techniques to mimic wood? I saw a piece once produced on Touche which was embossed and printed to look like cork. It felt and looked very real.
Not really what I'm looking for, but thanks. I need to do a large volume print run on something much smaller.
get a magnifying glass
you could have veneer laser'd
ask your printers if they have a large flatbed printer. i used to work for a sign company that has a durst rho. its pretty cool, they printed onto whole door as a sample, running the whole thing through it. it can also print white ink so the colours come out well with a white print underneath. if youre printing a good volume, that may be the way to go.
