You may be asking yourself, what in the world can I frame? That’s actually the easiest part! The perfect holiday gift is right in front of you. A memory or cherished object plus custom framing equals the gift of a treasured heirloom.

Of course, paintings, prints, and photographs look fantastic and are protected when framed. But there is so much more you can put in a frame! Pick any object or image that is meaningful to your recipient, and you can create compelling focal points with vibrant colors and textures that will continue to inspire every day. Add dates or notes in calligraphy, or watercolor an image onto the mat. These special touches are not cost prohibitive, and add great depth and personality to the story you care enough to frame. Worried that your object can’t be framed? Let the experts help!
