Designing Shadow Box Frames
Technically, any type of frame offering space between the art and the glass could be considered a shadow box frame. However, shadow box frames are typically at least 1 inch deep, and can be as deep as they need to be to accommodate your item. While most shadow box frames are created with opaque side walls that are part of the frame, we also offer acrylic boxes with clear side walls that allow viewers to see all sides of the item except the rear. One important factor in designing a shadow box frame is the color and look of the backdrop. Using a handwrapped silk, suede, or velvet fabric mat rather than a plain mat can add texture and interest to your shadow box frame. Our expert designers can help you combine the backing, frame color, and frame style to create a product that will complement and showcase your item.
Benefits of Shadow Box Framing Mar Vista CA
One of the biggest benefits of shadow box framing Mar Vista CA is the simple fact that it can elevate collectibles and other items to fine art status. Sealing an item inside a shadow box helps keep it dust-free and also reduces the risk of the item being damaged during handling.
