Shadow boxes are an elegant way to display 3D memorabilia, and can be used for objects like clothing, awards, coins, etc. They can contain a single object, but often are used to display a group of thematically-related objects. Shadow boxes are a traditional way to to commemorate military retirements.

Here is a small sample of the things we have framed using a shadow box:  

  • Wedding Dresses
  • First Communion Dresses
  • Baptismal Gowns
  • Baby Blankets
  • Military Medals
  • Hole-in-One Golf Mementos
  • Certificates
  • Retirement Collages
  • Concert T-Shirts and Tickets
  • Baseball Cards
  • Coin Collections
  • Plates

The one thing that all these pieces have in common is the expertise we bring in mounting. It’s the first hurdle in custom framing; how to make a three dimensional object stay put. We bring 36 years of experience mounting objects so they are preserved and not harmed in the process. Bring us your memories and we will bring them back to life!
