Types of Object Framing
Generally, there are two types of 3D object framing. They are shadow box framing, and acrylic box framing.
Shadow box framing is more like the sort of framing associated with two-dimensional objects such as photographs or paintings. The difference is that the frames have deep sides to accommodate the item or items within. These frames often include elevated matting or fabric liners to greater protect and display the item(s). They are designed to be viewed from the front only.
Acrylic box framing is a technique more suitable for deeper objects such as footballs (see example in our gallery). It allows objects to be displayed and viewed from more than one direction. It is particularly suitable for items that may be placed on public display, such as in a hotel/bar/restaurant, a clubhouse, or a museum.

Expert advice and service
Our framing experts will advise on the best type of framing for your item(s) when you contact us or call to see us.
If we opt for shadow box framing, we will give you a number of options regarding type of wood to be used, colour and type of mounting material, inlay cards to be included, and much more.
If acrylic box framing is more suitable for your item(s), we will decide on the exact shape and size of box to be used, mounting options for the object(s) inside, and again, any inlay cards to be included.
Whichever option is chosen, we will then deliver you a competitive quote for the job at hand. Once we agree a design and price, we will get to work on creating a long-lasting memento of your beloved keepsake(s), that will be treasured for years to come.
