Shadow Box Framing

When the opportunity arises to frame objects of art in a
shadow box, our creative and engineering juices engage
on a dual path to display the work in a tasteful, balanced
setting with strict attention to the structure that will
house the work. Click here for details!

The Importance of Proper Framing

A customer brought in a framed acrylic painting done by
her grandmother. As you can see by the photo below, it is
a still-life of flowers. This artwork was recently custom
framed at another shop (now out of business) nearby in
Sandwich, MA. Although this customer accepted the design,
she was always unhappy with the results. She did what
most consumers do: she relied on their “Expertise” in
designing the finished product. They took her hard-earned
money and delivered a product that was so overcooked,
and so out of proportion; we recommended that
she make a fresh start. Click her for details!
