Here is another great example of custom matting and framing done for a client of Katie L. of our Navy Exchange retail store on Oahu. It is a print called ‘Strike Hard’ showing images from Operation Iraqi Freedom with pins and a plaque mounted above on a multi-opening mat and a deluxe frame. Come and see Katie at our Navy Exchange location if you have any questions about this piece and how we can create something similar for you.

A great way to display certificates, awards, articles and even pictures is by putting them together within a theme and under a multi-opening custom mat. Ronnie W. of our Pearl Highlands store has these examples recently done for his clients. Our pros will help you through the entire process and suggest arrangement and composition, the best type of mat and of course the best combination of deluxe framing that will complete your custom piece.

Marlene of our Kauai location added this incredible mask to her portfolio recently. The simple presentation takes nothing away from the beauty of the mask yet gives it stature that it wouldn’t have if it were hung as a mask only.

Here we have a Koa veneer shadowbox presentation displaying a handmade fishing net along with the tools used to craft it. Within the display is a framed photo of the artisan also framed in Koa veneer. The items were custom mounted with care by our own specialty mounting pros.

Another well designed example of custom shadowbox style framing using deep set liners and tall moulding instead of the flat box type moulding usually reserved for shadow boxes. Utilizing our diverse stock of moulding choices, you can create something unique and elegant such as the great example submitted by Nathan K. from our Ward location. The broad gold moulding hugging the natural silk liner and muted mat are a perfect contrast to the vintage red leather of the children’s shoes. The framed black and white image centered between the shoes complements and enhances the overall design.
