Taking a Project from Conception to Completion
by Vickie Sheridan, MFA, CPF, Owner, Framers Market & Gallery
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 piece 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 or 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.
STEP 1: Select your project theme. Some examples include Grandma’s Scarf or Child’s Handprint (explained below).
STEP 2: Gather all items that relate to your theme — photos, clothing, mementos, medals and certificates — anything that’s scrapbook-worthy.
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!
Here is a customer example that illustrates how complex projects go from Concept to Completion!
“The day my son brought home his little handprint in clay, I didn’t know what to do with it. I wanted to hang it but didn’t trust the ribbon used for a hanger. So I gushed over it and a week later put it in a box so that it wouldn’t get broken. Years later, I was cleaning the closet and opened a box that I had forgotten about. Seeing that clay print brought back the day he brought it home. I never wanted to forget it again. Now when I look at that precious handprint, I can remember that day every day!”
Frame your child’s greatest masterpiece and you can enjoy those memories every time you look at your finished piece. Their first scribbles, handprints and school art projects make for memorable framing projects. For this ceramic handprint, we used neutral mat colors so the design would always remain in style. The frame is a soft off-white to match the ceramic.
