Shadow box framing, object box or memory box is a name given to a type of framing designed to display objects. The collectibles may have monetary value or sentimental value or they may be for decorative use only. Extra depth is often required to all the items to be supported but not touch the glazing – this is very important.
Shadow box framing construction is labour intensive and requires object framing skills. It needs planning, careful design and precise assembly.
Bespoke Framing offers expertise in design of your objects and can advise you on how many items, grouping, decorative features etc. Every shadow box is a unique project, even similar types will have different considerations such as size, number of items, condition and personal preferences.
Preservation can be key and value must be taken into consideration.
There are also various ways in which your object(s) can be attached dependant on size, weight, condition, value etc. This can be discussed or more detail on your visit.
More examples can be seen in our Memorabilia Gallery.
