Picture Frame Cutting and Joining (How to Frame Book 2)
Shadowbox framing is employed when the object being framed is three-dimensional, or is a flat object that requires platform mounting to give it a deep, box-like framing treatment. War medals and sporting medals or memorabilia are put in shadow boxes. Antique heirlooms are often framed, as well as, antique jewelry, textiles, coins, spoons, books and more.
We have many frames of varying depth to achieve this effect. Antique heirlooms are often framed as well. Antique jewelry, textiles, deeds, maps, coins, spoons, military medals, books. It is very difficult to stock shadowbox frames as every project a customer brings in requires the following varying requirements. Usually, a frame that is 1" to 2" or deeper can be used as an effective shadowbox.
We also carry frame mouldings 3" to 4"deep as well as modular shadowbox mouldings that are stackable to customize your frame depth to 5 or 6 inches. There are 2 methods to create a shadowbox that raises the glass up and away from the item s to be framed. One method is to insert the glass into the lip of the frame then line the insides of the frame using foam board and coloured mat board.
