4 Steps to Creating a Memorable Project

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 pieces 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 of 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 project!

STEP 1:

Select your project theme. Some examples include Grandma’s Scarf, Child’s Hand Print, or Dad’s Passion.

STEP 2:

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!

Dad’s Passion

 

“Many times in my childhood, I remember my childhood, I remember my Dad grabbing his fishing pole to spend a day at his favorite lake.  Some days he caught something; some days not. But he didn’t care; it wasn’t about the bounty – it was about being outside and having the hope & faith something would catch the end of his line.”

“Many years after having some of his favorite fishing pieces framed, it is a bit of history passed to my children about my Dad’s passion.”

 

 

Some hobbies come with a great deal of collectibles or representational items that help define our personalities. Framing is a great way to honor and cherish those collections (and the person attached to those memories).  Whether it’s fishing lures, coin collections, or spoons, we can create a beautiful display to celebrate that person.  For this project, we opted for neutral colors and rustic finishes to highlight the sport and vintage style.

 

 

Grandma’s Scarf

“It was early Fall.

My mom & I were taking a short walk to the local bakery for some yummy scones and 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 shill in the air.  As we were chatting, I noticed the scarf had become threadbare in 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 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 to acid-free backing and protected with UV-filtering glass.  History and tradition come together in a design that mimics the vintage colors and textures of old photographs and fabrics.
