Expert custom framing requires an understanding of how to best feature the art at hand. When we receive unique objects that hold meaning to our clients, we make it a point to showcase them in a way that will highlight its personal significance. For one of our clients, we created a custom presentation for his childhood Eagle Scout memorabilia that would allow him to enjoy them while recollecting the memories from that time in his life.
Our client has worked with our sales person, Mary, for twenty-five years. This most recent project involved framing various Eagle Scout paraphernalia from 1954 including his sashes, hat, pins, and letter. The design was the initial hurdle. How do we take these objects and arrange them in a way that makes sense? Mary filled us in on part of the framing process.
“We folded the sashes to be the same length and placed them on either side of the letter. The idea was that the fabric pieces would frame the letter within the custom acrylic case. We also chose a background fabric that looked age appropriate and complimented all the items.” The pins were displayed in the order that our client earned them. All of the fabric pieces needed to be hand-sewn down and the paper letter mounted properly. Once the objects were mounted, they were placed in a large acrylic case for a seamless presentation.
“I was thirteen years old and I remember becoming an Eagle Scout being my first real accomplishment, so I wanted to preserve it for my children.” The client installed the completed project in his family room, where generations of his family can enjoy it. “I am extremely happy with the final project, it really exceeded my expectations.”
