I was wondering if anyone knew much about printing on wood veneer, and
a good vendor to go through?
I have always been curious about printing on textures, and have been
seeing more, and more letterpress printing on wood veneer, I think it
I have researched a little online, and it seems that veneer is very
expensive, but maybe that was just research I did. I was hoping to find

- Albert Constantine is the woodworkers' source for veneer. Real veneer is very thin and comes in irregular sheets that are about 8" by 36". It is meant to be firmly glued to a solid substrate such as inexpensive wood or chipboard. It splits easily along the grain. By itself it won't hold up. I can't imagine printing on it, but if you must you should give it some kind of backing such as paper, plastic or cloth.I think previous posts have mentioned some kind of veneer that is sold with a backing attached.David
