Custom framing enhances and preserves more than just paintings and photographs. Our projects have included shadow-boxes for military honors, stretching and framing fine needlework and entire quilts, mounting athletic shoes and equipment for display, keepsake items, photography, printed canvas and acrylic, documents, mirrors, even coffee sacks.

This was a project representing the three silhouettes of a family’s children. This was traditionally done in the the 19th century and had some roots to the Victorian time period; although paper cutting goes back for centuries in history and shows up in countless cultures.
When we think of custom framing and a custom framed shadow box, we often think of a large complicated project with lots of three dimensional objects to mount and display. This is a project where we wanted to show off a special moment to the young man in the photo.
Recently, a gentleman brought in an original Michelangelo to the shop. Framing was very conservative with special attention paid to the conservation and preservation of the art.
