Custom framing creates a stellar showcase for an authentic “space wings” pin, circa 1954-55. The deep turquoise mat and ivory and silver frame complement the age and colors of the vintage collectible on its original paper backing.
The pin was offered as a promotion on the “Rocky Jones, Space Ranger” show. Sponsored by Silvercup Bread, viewers could receive a pair of space wings by sending in one bread wrapper. We were thrilled to frame this special nostalgic token for our client.




A striking portrait by Cuban artist Julio Venegas is floated on a cream-colored mat, spaced to give the artwork center stage. A gold fillet and dark frame surround it with a beautiful combination of texture, line, and shape.



Four Seasons: Colorful and Contemporary

We framed a set of Chicago-based artist Ryan Kapp’s “4 Seasons” in sleek, white lacquer. Fillets in the same style but different colors add whimsy and a vibrant pop to this contemporary, clean-lined framing design.

Abstract Watercolor

This is a gorgeous watercolor on paper by John Adams called “Two Moons”. It was floated on a fabric mat, and then framed inside one of our newest frames. This frame has a deep bevel, so the artwork is set back a bit from the front of the frame, giving the piece a minimal yet dramatic look.

Pink Flamingo!

Children’s art projects are perfect for framing! This whimsical 3-D flamingo was created by one of our young clients and was then given as a Christmas gift. It was shadowboxed with a hot pink mat inside a white frame with enough depth to accommodate its accordion-folded legs and fluffy feathers. So much fun!

This print by Chicago artist Ryan Kapp was given a simple, clean treatment. It was cleverly matted with a right side-weighted mat to accentuate the yellow space. Sharp!


Vienna Beef!

We framed this article from Chicago Magazine for Vienna Beef when they were highlighted for one of the “8 Great Hot Dogs”. We showed off the article using white mats with different colored cores, using their company’s signature red, blue and yellow colors. We lined up all the bevels of the mats so that no extra white is showing for a dramatic line of color. And a fiery red metal frame to finish it off!

Temple Goddess


This ornate ceramic piece came from an Asian temple. It received a stunning frame treatment. The piece was floated on a black matboard and propped with a muted sage fabric mat. A clean, contemporary frame creates an eye-catching contrast to the ancient feel of the art.
