Custom framing goes beyond paintings, prints, and posters. Custom framing is a craft far more playful, creative, and meaningful than many people realize. So excuse me while I tap into my inner Beyonce to tell you, 'If you like it than you should have put a frame on it.'
There are so many insanely creative ways to use framing to your advantage. It's not always just 'fine art' that deserves to be displayed on our walls- but also things that capture our personality, tell stories of our journeys, and beautiful reminders of the people, places, and things that we love.

Books, book covers, and pages with your favorite pieces of a story, are such a unique and fun thing to frame...not to mention, they make a fantastic gift for any literature lover! The covers are art themselves, and framing them in a shadow box creates gorgeous depth.
Maps are another awesome thing draw attention too with a custom frame job. Maps have beautiful colors and pattern, and are a wonderful way to publicly chronicle the places you lived or visited.
Every one finds beauty and mystery in different trinkets and treasures that get collected over time. Coins, war memorabilia, antique postcards, dried flowers and leaves all can be framed and artfully displayed rather than tucked away in a drawer or attic collecting dust.
DECORATE with PERSONALITY
Your space should reflect your character. Are you a fashionista? Frame shopping bags from your favorite stores, or the antique necklace your grandmother handed down to you.
Are you a sports fan? Frame your tickets, jersey, or baseball bat! Love beer, wine, whiskey? Labels of your favorite brands are amusing and whimsical ways to liven up your walls!
