We Framed What?

We Framed What?

What can we frame? How about coffee bags with some snazzy artwork on them? These two coffee bags were framed in an 11″x14″ readymade frame. They were float mounted on a suede mat (in stock 11×14 mat) and the top mat was raised about a half an inch to raise the glass away from the coffee bags. Note the walls under the top mat, gorgeous! How much did this beautiful piece cost? Less than $75! The top mat was raised up about 1/2″ to keep the glass off the artwork and create a shadowbox effect. Note the suede bottom mat is duplicated under the top mat for the...

51 Coins

I wanted to share this special framed project we completed recently.  There are 51 silver dollars, one for each year of our customers life.  The coins are floated on a dark brown mat and the top linen mat is raised up away from the coins to give it a slight shadowbox feel. We feel so fortunate to be able to frame and preserve these special memories for our clients.

Timeless Timepieces!

Timeless Timepieces!

It’s always the right ‘time’ to display priceless heirlooms! Recently, we had a customer who brought her father’s old watch in to be framed. Although we were honored to oblige her, the timepiece itself was rather bare. Feeling that an item so precious deserved a more descriptive story, she dedicated some time to mull over several potential additions. After careful consideration and research, she dug up some family vacation photos wherein her father was proudly displaying the watch on his wrist. As an extra layer of neatness, she found maps of the locations they were vacationing to place behind the corresponding photographs. The slightly skewed orientation of the photos adds lightheartedness to the overall piece, chockfull of memories and smiles. The end result:   So do you have any heirlooms lying around to bring in to us? We’d love to help you create a personalized...
