3D Object Framing at The Framer's Workshop
"Picture Framing" implies framing a two-dimensional surface, typically paper or canvas. At The Framer's Workshop, we also frame collectible objects needing to be both showcased and protected. We take great care to enhance the look of the object while providing protection from handling, dust and damaging UV light.
Generally, there are two types of 3D framing: Shadow-box Framing and Acrylic Box Framing.
"Shadow Boxes" (click example to the left) are frames with deep sides that accommodate the depth of the object(s) contained. These often include elevated matting or fabric covered liners. These items are usually only viewed from one direction.
"Acrylic Box Framing," (click examples, right) allows objects to be displayed and viewed from more than one point of view. In some instances they stand upright on a base, allowing a 360° view.
Below are examples of objects we've framed over the years. As you see, there are a wide variety, some more three dimensional than others. Be sure to click the thumbnails for a more detailed view.
If you have an object or set of objects you'd like to protect and display, bring them into our shop and we'll be happy to discuss both the aesthetic and structural options available.
