It is possible to hold, capture and keep your most cherished memories by custom picture framing some of the items or objects associated with the memories' times or events. In this example, a pair of child-sized, soccer boots are mounted and framed in the 3-dimensional silver, box picture frame. The boots were brought in by a female customer whose brother was soon to become 21.. She had asked that the boots be picture framed economically and in time for his birthday. The items were picture framed with two mat colours over a light background inside a custom made box picture frame. Many are the objects, such as mementos, keepsakes, collectibles, coins, stamps, spoons, pins, badges, flags, pennants, shells, fabrics, records, photos, documents, letters, postcards, thimbles, buttons .. paper art, that can be picture framed or put in a picture frame. We have seen some US picture framers' commissions which involved the framing of complete military uniforms, though the picture frame cannot be hung and these were more like display cabinets than frames. If framing personal memorabilia, customers should take care in choosing the picture framer. Many picture framers are unsuited to this exacting and delicate type of work. They may even use resins or glues to permanently and irreversibly bond artwork. Ideally, during your consultation with the picture framer, you should ask if he or she actually enjoys this specialized picture framing. If they do, chances are that they will not only be good at it, but will also have actual examples of photographs of past works or commissions they have done. You would then be able to better judge if the framer is suited for the task which you will proffer.
