How Does Custom Framing Work?

No matter what item you would like to showcase, we can create a custom frame for it. All you have to do is bring us the item, and we can determine what size frame will look best. Then we show you the various frame styles you can choose from and suggest which options we think will best showcase your piece. You’ll have the option to make the final decision about the size, style, and color of the frame. We’ll then complete the framing process, and you’ll have a beautiful new memento to hang in your home. We can frame artwork, photographs, posters, sports jerseys, diplomas, and more.

What Are the Benefits of Custom Framing?

Custom framing isn’t just about showcasing your items and making them look good. It also provides an additional important benefit. Framing your items helps to preserve them and protect them from damage. Putting your items in a frame with a glass cover protects them from constant touching and exposure to other harmful elements like moisture. Any item you cherish and want to showcase for years to come can benefit from being placed in a custom frame.

How Can I Submit My Engraving Information?

You can submit your engraving information in person by providing us with a written version of the message or name to go on the award. You may also send this information in an email. However, for all rush orders that need to be completed in less than seven days, you must call us or stop by our store to ensure we can complete it on time.

What Are Your Trophies & Medals Made Of?

You’ll have a variety of options when choosing the material of your trophies and medals. We work with several different types of metals like bronze, silver, and copper, as well as special resins that mimic the appearance of metal. Our team has years of experience expertly crafting these materials and will ensure your awards look sleek and professional.

Which Is Heavier, Acrylic, or Crystal?

We can craft awards from both acrylic and crystal, which both produce a beautiful finished product. However, because acrylic is a type of thermoplastic, it is very lightweight and is not as heavy as crystal. If you want to produce a substantial, sturdy award, crystal is your best option.

What Is the Usual Production Time for Orders?

Production time will vary depending on the item you order and the complexity of the project. However, we strive to complete most projects with a five to ten-day turnaround. We do allow you to expediate the production of your item for an additional charge. Expediting fees will vary depending on your project.

What File Type Should I Upload My Logo In?

Please provide an EPS file saved to Adobe 9. Be sure the file is outline vector and in black and white with no half-tones. You can call us for image requirements for your specific job.
