Custom frame design & finishing

The best background ever

The first thing you see in one of our framed pieces is not our frame or matting. The first thing you see is within the frame. That’s because we purposely design our frame systems to enhance and complement your subject, not compete with it. But we feel our carefully designed and crafted frames are the most functional, complementary and pleasing secondary component in the overall presentation of your subject.

Your art, print or 3D pieces inspire us to select the right mat color, texture and layering to go with just the right frame selected from hundreds of samples. Our mat materials are acid-free paper or 100% rag cotton, some with all-through solid color. We use glass with UV protection to resist fading over time, and we offer glass with nonreflective and museum properties as well. We have a plentiful selection of materials to choose from, enabling us to make a unique presentation of your special idea.

Shadow boxing

No, this isn’t the boxer stutter-stepping down the road boxing his own shadow. Here we’re referring to a collection of artifacts that mean something special to you. And you want an artful way to display this collection in your home or work space. Bring us your special memorabilia. We’ll show you how your separate artifacts can fit together in a single, impressive piece of art. We’ll create just the right presentation tone you’re looking for and have a one-of-a-kind piece you won’t get anywhere else!
