About the Plank
This vintage wood plank is made from commercial 'indoor/outdoor' MDO wood. This is the same wood used in the commercial sign industry, It's smooth, straight and durable which allows us to imprint a rich, wood grain finish without any concern of future warping. Each plank is hand cut and finished in Blue Springs and Grain Valley, Missouri. (100% Made in the USA)
Hanging the 'Plank'
We attach a saw tooth hanger or route a keyhole on the top back of each plank for easy hanging.
12" x 18" x 1/2" thick
Since we're creating a retro painting of your student, your photo background DOES NOT matter. You can have your student put their uniform on and stand in a classroom, living room, yard or parking lot. It literally doesn't matter. They can make a competitive face and act like their kicking a soccer ball or making a block. or swinging a bat. If it's for debate or chess or drama, they can pose and dress however they want.
The point is, typically when a coach or parent or school paper takes pictures of athletes or participants in any event, the student is far away. The key is to get a nice clean shot of your student. Does this mean we can't work with real action shots of your students? Yes, of course we can — we do it all the time. These suggestions are simply to let you know you do not have to have a real life action shot of your student.
Feel free to forward any pic you have of the student and we'll let you know if it works!
