CLEAR ACRYLIC FRAMES

Clean and modern, yet surprisingly complementary to even vintage images, PRISMA acrylic frames fill a unique niche for extraordinary framing.  They are created by starting with a 3/4" or 1" thick slab of clear or sea acrylic.  Then the custom shape and chosen design pattern are cut out of it.  Next, your custom chosen colors are applied to the back side of the lip of the frame, pattern and background and the face of the frame is polished or sanded to create a stunningly unique look for your wall

WELDED STEEL FRAMES

ATOMIC FRAMES lend a modern, edgy vibe to artwork that is high end and different.  Each frame is handcrafted to order from raw steel, welded, riveted (or not) and patina added.  They are industrial chic and modern rustic. These are very cool looking frames.

FABRIC WRAPPED MATS

Luxurious and warm, rich in color, subtle in texture, custom fabric wrapped mats and liners really dress up your art.  Fabric is the preferred choice for shadowboxes, especially when organic objects are being framed. When embossed effects are desired or the mat you want doesn’t come big enough in the color you want, fabric mats are the way to go.
