Wood Portraits - Photos submitted and engraved on wood



  • Details
    Request your photograph engraved on wood for a unique gift which will be cherished for years to come. Pictures are digitally edited to be optimized for engraving on 1/8" baltic birch ply. My technique leans towards a 3-dimensional aspect. The engrave is not a simple print overlay on wood but a true engraving into the grains.

    Standard sizes available as well as custom sizes up to 11"X19".

    Your photograph can be customized further by adding a quote or personal message (handwritten by you or a loved one or typed with hundreds of fonts to choose from) to the front or back.

    Photographs of high quality and contrast turn out the best. Professional photos are not required. Photographs must be owned by the customer or have permission to reproduce. However, the quality of the photo will carry through in the quality of the engrave. I have made some amazing portraits from cell phone pictures. I have also made some bad portraits from cell phone pictures - because of the quality of the photo. I understand that sometimes, this is the only photo you have and I will do my best to make sure it shows its best. Dark subjects (black dogs especially) and black clothing are difficult. Again, I will do my best. If you order a portrait and I believe it will not turn out well on wood, I will let you know and request a new photo or refund your purchase. I want you to be happy with your custom work.

    Please submit photos through Etsy messenger or email to shishona [!at] pauseibilities.life.

    A digital proof will be sent to you showing you any cropping or customization as requested. Your order will not be completed without approval of this proof. After engraving, no returns will be accepted due to your failure to proof or provide the correct message.

    I am so pleased with how this turned out! Beautiful work!

    I was extremely pleased with my order from Pauseibilities! The workmanship is excellent, and the owner worked with me along the way to make sure everything was to my liking. The image was perfect! Once it was done, it was shipped and arrived quickly. They get an A+ for customer service!

    The owner was super sweet and helpful. She answered all my questions quickly and even worked to get my product to me ASAP and had just had major surgery. I would use her 100 out of 100 times. I am beyond pleased with my product!

    I LOVE this wood engraving of my dog! It captures her personality perfectly and really adds a cool twist on a simple picture. Delivery and packaging was perfect. It also makes a special unique gift.
