Shadow Box Framing

Shadow box framing, object box, box frame 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 accommodate all the items to be supported but not touch the glazing - this is very important.
