Shadow Box

Purple Heart

Purple Heart
Check out this great shadow box frame that THE FRAME STUDIO was able to create for a client! Along with the purple heart, a few other items - like rank and branch pins, name tag, and photos - were combined to make this shadow box frame a great representation of the brave man that earned that purple heart. We were happy to be a part of pulling this memory together. Thank you to the service men and women of all military branches for keeping us free!!!

When you are out on your travels this summer, why not bring back something a little different.  A Good client brought these miniature hand woven Peruvian dresses to THE FRAME STUDIO to custom frame. We helped her pick out a rustic frame with mat colors to tie them all together in a shadow box.  What a great vacation find! What vacation trinkets and collectibles do you have in drawers that should be up on your walls?

An Engagement to Remember

An Engagement to Remember
Proposals are some of THE FRAME STUDIO's favorite stories.  They can be sweet, funny, dramatic, romantic, and touching.  Our client Catie came in with a truly sweet story where the proposal was timed to go along with the sunset. (Just writing that gave me goose bumps all over again.)  She wanted to capture the romantic occasion by framing a few mementos from that evening.  We put together a modern shadow box that picked up a touch of lavender and gold from that evening's sunset.  They now have a custom framed piece that tells their story, and gives them that feeling (remember those goose...

The Power of Design…

The Power of Design…
Somebody just recently brought this Ketubah in for framing.   Their wedding was a while ago, it was neatly packed and stored away for some time.  She searched and searched for framing ideas and frame shops on-line. She didn't just want to take her precious Art anywhere.   Finally a mutual friend and client of ours recommended The Frame Studio to her and she came in.  We frame a lot of different Ketubah's, wedding invitations or shadow boxes, but have to say, this is one of the most beautiful and unique pieces we have seen.  The challenge was to find the special colors and style to complime...

Framing the History of a Business

Framing the History of a Business
We here at THE FRAME STUDIO love a challenge, and we started out the year with a great one!  A new client found us with an online search.  He liked our web site and was impressed with our selection of shadow box designs on the site, so he brought in a fun custom framing project using a few of his collectibles.  Tom had a collection of model semis that he had accumulated through the years of owning trucking companies.  He had a vision of what he wanted, so we spent time working along with him to come up with the best layouts that would pair up the trucks for each company with their matching b...

A Special Race

A Special Race
Kathy came into THE FRAME STUDIO the other day with some items from a special race.  Kathy did a 5k run with Nutmeg, her dog.  Kathy works in the health care system, and Nutmeg works at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital as a therapy dog.  Kathy and Nutmeg do so much together;  it only made sense to race together. Kathy wanted to make sure that there would be no question that Nutmeg could run in the race with her, so Nutmeg was entered as a runner. They both had their own entry numbers, and got their own medals at the end. We were so grateful to get to frame their memories.  We created a s...

Running for Family and Justice

Running for Family and Justice
The recent Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon and Half Marathon brought runners from all over to town. One of those runners came to The Frame Studio to create a custom shadow box and frame. We have created previous shadow boxes  for Karen, from other races, but the contents of this box are a little extra special to her: a photo of her at the finish line, her time card (she finished in 2nd Place in her age category - a fantastic achievement), her number tag, her medal for participating but most treasured is the button she wore on her left hip as she ran. The button is in commemoration of her co...

Wedding Framing

Wedding Framing
This framing is a great example of unconventional things that we, here at The Frame Studio,  can still frame despite the bulkiness and odd shapes of some of the items. This particular client came in with a pile of things from his wedding and he wanted them framed to surprise his wife. This gave some creative freedom as to the layout and Béla took full advantage of it while working with the client to come up with something that was suitable. To overcome the problem of objects having depth Béla made this frame into a shadow box. The final piece came out amazing, take a look for yourself.

Coast Guard

Coast Guard
One of the great things about The Frame Studio is our staff and their years of experience in custom framing design. When a coast guardsman came in, with just a patch and a training gun, all he knew was he wanted to memorialize his latest training accomplishment. This initial thought sparked what would become a great framing project.  Béla took this framing to another level by asking the coast guardsman to bring in more patches and a picture, as well as a plaque that explained the items being framed. With the assistance of the coast guardsman, a design was laid out then the frame and mats were ...
