Welcome to Bungalow Block Prints
Block printing is an ancient printing technique where artists carved a design into a solid block of wood which was then used to transfer the image onto paper or textiles. More recently block prints are created by drawing the design on tracing paper, then using carbon paper to transfer the images onto any number of linoleum blocks which are then carved according to the different colors of the design. The art has advanced but it is still an extremely labor intensive process. Most block printers create a number of prints from one design; to create a single block print of an individual subject is expensive and simply impractical.
Well, not anymore! Bungalow Block Prints now offers homeowners the chance to own a period appropriate, block style print of their own home. Our method transforms a digital photograph into a piece of art, reminiscent of the works produced during the Arts and Crafts period, with the same dedication to creativity and craftsmanship that has largely been lost in our current society of mass-production and economy.
