Taking a Project from Conception to Completion

When you bring your framing project to us, you expect the best, and that is exactly what you will get from start to finish. We organize, design and create complex framing projects from your treasures. From creative ideas to hanging hardware, we provide innovative design and quality workmanship, so you can enjoy your piece for years.

A collection of keepsake items may seem overwhelming to safely store and keep track of, while still being able to enjoy them. Custom Framing will solve these challenges and create a beautiful display you will be proud to show off.

Shadowboxes are sometimes called ‘Memory Boxes’ for a reason. They are the perfect way to showcase special objects and photos that celebrate a memory, achievement, event or person. We are experts in creating artistic presentations from your items – just bring them in and we can create a truly one-of-a-kind memory for you.

Follow these four steps to create a memorable framing project!

STEP 1: Select your project theme. Some examples include Grandpa’s Army Days, Child’s Hand Print, Grandma’s Scarf, or Dad’s Passion.

STEP 2: Gather all items that relate to your theme – photos, clothing, mementos, medals, certificates – anything that’s ‘scrapbook-worthy.’

STEP 3: Bring your items to us. We will help you arrange them in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

STEP 4: We’ll work our framing magic and present you with a completed framed project, so you can cherish your memories for a lifetime!

Here are some examples that illustrate how complex projects go from Concept to Completion!

Grandma’s Scarf

It was early Fall. My Mom & I were going to take a short walk to the local bakery for some yummy scones and a cup of coffee. Mom threw on her wrap that had been passed down 3 generations, and would eventually be mine someday. It was beautiful, and perfect for the crisp chill in the air. As we were chatting, I noticed the scarf had become thread bare in some places. I told Mom that when it was mine, I would like to honor it by framing it in a shadowbox, so that it would not become any more damaged. She thought that was a wonderful idea, and suggested I add pictures of the women who had worn it. Every time I look at Grandma’s Scarf, I think of that Fall day when Mom & I were at that cozy coffee shop enjoying each other’s company.

Family heirlooms are beautiful items passed down from generation to generation, and it is our job to capture their beauty and preserve their sentimental importance. Heirlooms like textiles, scarves, wedding dresses, and handkerchiefs are hand-sewn and protected behind UV-filtering glass. History and tradition come together in a design that mimics the vintage colors and textures of old photographs and fabrics.
