Pine wood business cards


Pines are coniferous trees in the genus Pinus, in the family Pinaceae. They make up the monotypic subfamily Pinoideae. There are about 115 species of pine, although different authorities accept between 105 and 125 species.
Nissiwood produces wood business cards which can be printed, laser engraved and perfumed from pine wood species. Cherry is good for printing.
Pines are native to most of the Northern Hemisphere. In Eurasia, they range from the Canary Islands and Scotland east to the Russian Far East, and the Philippines, north to just over 70°N in Norway (Scots Pine) and eastern Siberia (Siberian Dwarf Pine), and south to northernmost Africa, the Himalaya and Southeast Asia, with one species (Sumatran Pine) just crossing the Equator in Sumatra to 2°S. In North America, they range from 66°N in Canada (Jack Pine) south to 12°N in Nicaragua (Caribbean Pine). The highest diversity in the genus occurs in Mexico and California.
Pines have been introduced in subtropical and temperate portions of the Southern Hemisphere, including Chile, Brazil, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, where they are grown widely as a source of timber, and some species are becoming invasive.
Pines are evergreen and resinous trees (rarely shrubs) growing to 3–80 m tall, with the majority of species reaching between 15-45 m tall. The smallest are Siberian Dwarf Pine and Potosi Pinyon, and the tallest, Sugar Pine. Pines are long-lived, typically reaching ages of 100–1,000 years, some even more. The longest-lived is the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine Pinus longaeva, one individual of which at 4,840 years old in 2008 is one of the oldest living organisms in the world.
The bark of most pines is thick and scaly, but some species have thin, flaking bark. The branches are produced in regular "pseudo whorls", actually a very tight spiral but appearing like a ring of branches arising from the same point. Many pines are uninodal, producing just one such whorl of branches each year, from buds at the tip of the year's new shoot, but others are multinodal, producing two or more whorls of branches per year. The spiral growth of branches, needles and cone scales are arranged in Fibonacci number ratios. The new spring shoots are sometimes called "candles"; they are covered in brown or whitish bud scales and point upward at first, then later turn green and spread outward. These "candles" offer foresters a means to evaluate fertility of the soil and vigour of the trees.

Cherry wood business cards


Local name - CherryBotanical name - Prunus Serotina
This wood species is imported from the plantations of USA. Cherry is processed from American origin logs and it has a unique appearance of its own. Dark color printing would be ideal in this species. This is rotary peeled for its wide grain appearance for printing applications. This is an excellent species for business card printing. Cherry is good going wood business card species from nissiwood.


Cherry is a premium American hardwood prized for its natural luster, attractive grain, and rich, warm glow. Green Design Furniture works in cherry harvested from the Allegheny Forest region of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, an area recognized for its sustainable forest practices. This wood has a consistently high quality of grain, color, and width. We also accept orders to make our furniture in other domestic hardwoods, including ash, maple, white oak, and walnut. Until the worldwide rainforest situation improves, we have elected not to work with imported woods.
Cherry’s Aging ProcessWhen your new piece of Green Design Furniture arrives, it will have a light, golden tone. Over the next 12 months the color will darken to a rich, red-brown. Darkening occurs gradually, as the furniture is exposed to light. Cherry (Prunus Serotina) trees are found throughout the US and Canada. The wood varies from a yellowish pink when first cut to a deep rich reddish brown, often getting darker and more rich as it ages. Its smooth texture and working properties make it a favorite wood among furniture makers.

Mahogany wood business cards





Nissiwood produces wood business cards from mahogany which is the best in the collection. Mahogany wood species is grown all over south India as it is a very commercially viable wood species for its fast growth and value. Local plantations are very predominant. This has an attractive color and finish which makes it a good species for business cards. Lighter color printing is recommended. Nissiwood also do the laser engraving on wood business cards from Mahogany wood species the best. Mahoganie's properties also allows perfuming also.
Mahogany has a generally straight grain and is usually free of voids and pockets which enables business card printing. It has a reddish-brown color, which darkens over time. It has excellent workability, and is very durable. These properties make it a favourable wood for printing. Nissiwood prefers mahogany wood much better for printing.
Mahogany is widely used for fine furniture. Mahogany resists wood rot, which makes it suitable for boat construction. It is also often used for musical instruments, particularly the backs of guitars. Mahogany is used for drum making, because of its integrity and capability to produce a very dark, warm tone. Mahogany is also commonly used in acoustic guitars. Mahogany is now being used for the bodies of high-end stereo phonographic record cartridges and for stereo headphones, where it is noted for “warm” or “musical” sound.
The name mahogany is used when referring to numerous varieties of dark-colored wood, originally the wood of the species Swietenia mahagoni. Mahogany was equally applied to the wood of Swietenia macrophylla, which is closely related, and known as Honduras mahogany. Today, all species of Swietenia are listed by CITES, and are therefore protected. Species of Swietenia cross-fertilise readily when they grow in proximity, the hybrid between S. mahagoni and S. macrophylla is widely planted for its timber. Mahogany is the national tree of Dominican Republic and Belize it also appears on the national seal of Belize which was known as British Honduras before independence.
"Mahoganies" may refer to the largest group of all the timbers yielded by the fifteen related species of Swietenia, Khaya and Entandrophragma. The timbers of Entandrophragma are sold under their individual names, sometimes with "mahogany" attached as a suffix, for example "sipo" may be referred to as "sipo mahogany". Kohekohe (Dysoxylum spectabile), a close relative, is sometimes called New Zealand Mahogany.
