LONG LIVE DESIGN.

Universal Woods raises the bar. With continuous improvement, we have become the industry model of excellence. In a marketplace of digital images, consumers expect beautifully vivid perfection and modern ways to showcase art, preserve memories, and express personality. Universal Woods’ proprietary, multi-step Paragon process ensures timeless enjoyment.​

BORN IN THE USA

 

Our substrates are expertly handcrafted by our skilled manufacturing team in Louisville, Kentucky. All raw materials for our substrates are sourced and produced in the United States.

ART + SCIENCE 

 

Research and design drive our every move in creating new products. Customer feedback, market trends, and our own employees inspire our product and process innovation. Equal parts Art and Science.

CRAFTED WITH CARE.

The Universal Woods team takes great pride in every aspect of our process. All of our substrates are hand-inspected using our 'White-glove treatment' in conjunction with phase-by-phase visual inspections to ensure the highest quality sublimatable surfaces.

PROPRIETARY COATING

 

American made and formulated exclusively for Universal Woods, our polymer-based coating ensures that every substrate is protected from harmful UV rays and scratches and your art remains vibrant and vivid. Striving to perfect our proprietary formula has been a labor of love spanning decades.

UNIVERSAL WOODS & YOU.

As industry leaders, we help guide the creation and growth of your successful venture. Rich with resources, ideas and solutions - we’re here for you.​

STANDARDS? ABSOLUTELY.

 

As partners in sustainable forest management, all maple wood and MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) are responsibly sourced from forested wood and are FSC certified. Six out of seven of our Bare substrates are 100% recyclable - even after being sublimated.
