Finished woods work the best for me when I am UV printing them. Printers with white and clear inks help adhere the print to the surface. Maple wood is one of my favorites to use with the printer. The light wood color can be used as the white background instead of using a white base under the colored inks. This allows the grain of the wood to show through the lighter colors, giving it an even more unique appearance.
