Custom framing for artifacts and history

John came to us with his family’s precious family heirloom to be preserved. We used museum-quality glass & sewed the items onto suede matboard. The discharge paper was floated on a board & the top mat was lined with a gold fillet. This was his testimonial. “My great grandfather’s hat, baton, and discharge papers from…

A story that will bring tears to your eyes, as it did ours! Our customer wanted to frame her recently deceased husband’s violin. Listening to their love story that started when they were children gave us a plethora of ideas. We insisted on including a love song that he wrote to her, as well as…

Jean has been our customer for almost 30 years. She honors us every time she brings her church’s religious artwork to be framed. Seeing her get emotional when we do the big reveal, touches us and reinforces our slogan, “WE FRAME EMOTIONS!”.

John is a big collector of autographed rock albums, and we are his go to for framing them! This Rolling Stones “Sticky Fingers” album has a real zipper in it (but you Stones fans know that!). We used a wide, black, distressed frame with an inner frame that looks like a zipper. We completed it…

A customer’s testimonial: “I recently renovated a very small and very dark powder room. The ceiling was less than 7’ high. I had a difficult time figuring out how to light this room, and make it feel welcoming instead of like being inside a cave. I decided that a backlit mirror would work well but…

Custom framing for a medal with a blue tag

We frame all kinds of medals earned by our heroes. Donna’s father, Joe Agnello, was a WWII hero. She wanted to honor him by framing his Purple Heart award, that he received when he was wounded while fighting along the Siegfried Line. She also wanted to preserve the prestigious Bronze Star that he was awarded…

Custom framing for a vintage artwork

Erin & Mike thought they wanted just a black frame, but when we showed them the possibilities of how incredible this could look with an industrial outer frame and a black inner frame (that matched the movement in the piece) …it was an easy decision!

Custom Framing for the Budweiser logo and film reel

Mike brought us Leon Redbone ‘s original reel to reel tape recording of his Budweiser commercial. We recreated & printed the logo for the background. Then we sewed the reel & the box (that it came in) to the logo backing. We designed it so if our customer ever wants to play the tape, he…

Patriotism at its finest! This hand crocheted American flag was brought to us by this amazing 95-year young woman, Helen, who created it AND 6 more! We stretched it and used Museum glass & acid-free materials to protect these heirloom pieces. The design is meant to look like it has some age to it. She…
