PHOTO BLOCK – a coated fine art inkjet print mounted to 3/4” baltic birch plywood, created in Newport, RI by photographer Alexander “Sandy” Nesbitt (known variations: blocks, photo plaque, wood plaque, photo on wood, photoblock, wood mounted print) 

Photo blocks are handmade art prints, created and produced at Sandy’s studio using his own photography and coating techniques refined over the last 25 years of producing fine art pieces involving mounted prints. Designed to offer a small print that doesn’t require framing, each block has a pre-cut slot in the back for easy hanging. The 3/4” thickness of the wood also allows the small prints to stand on edge for easy display on a shelf. While each image can be printed over and over again, each photo block is produced by hand and therefore bears the signature of the artist.

A good craftsman never shares all of his secrets. . . you won’t find a similar style product out there made with the same attention detail and clarity of image!


Blink always has over 100 photo blocks in stock! Any image in the photo collection can be made as a block – don’t see it in stock? Just ask.

Blocks are available in 3 standard sizes: small 5×8, large 8×12, and pano 5×16. Not every image is available in panorama, as this is usually a cropped version of a full frame. The size ratios work out really well if you want to make a group. Why pick a favorite, when you can make a whole collection!
