      Hi,

      It is possible to letterpress on thin wood laminate, however, I don't
      imagine being able to fold something like that.

      Perhaps the photo your client saw used the Gmund wood-grain embossed
      paper? It comes in several colors. http://www.gmund.com/products/savanna

      Good luck!

        i have chip charts from gmund and that's not what she's looking for, but i do love that savannah paper!  i think the veneer response is more accurate.  i will look into that, thanks!

              i have a client who saw some placecards - i think i martha stewart - that were folded wood in a blonde color with more of a reddish wood die cut leaf. it of course needs to be letterpressed, so does anyone have a resource or suggestion for this? thanks!

                Hi, You can buy wood veneer in sheets from NY Central Art Supply. Their online catalog is a beast but you should be able to find it on this page by scrolling down http://www.nycentralartsupply.com/americas/usa4.html. I buy this all the time to use in bindings. It is paper backed and prints very well. It's worth getting the swatch book.

                Good luck,

                    I have about fifty sheets of wood grained paper, 8.5x11, which I bought from Daniel Smith in

                    Seattle; but I see by their current catalogue that it is no longer listed. The sheets are plain on

                    the verso & a lovely wood grain from a mould on the face. It is white/ivory in color. I think it

                    possible that Daniel Smith could tell you who their supplier might have been. Their number

                    is 800 426 6740, & I would ask for the paper buyer or manager. They can also be reached by

                    email at customer.service@...

                      If you actually want veneer, the source for it is Albert Constantine, which moved from Bronx to Florida several years ago.  Check their website.   You cut it with a razor blade or mat knife.  Used by itself, it splits very easily so the paper-backed variety would be better to print on.
