Display Box!

Display Box!

Recently we had one of our customers come in with the request of a display box for (get this…) a BOOT! We put our heads together and came up with this idea, using two different picture frame mouldings and some custom risers. We added the framed photo of the bunch of fellas on the inside and put it all together. This display box measures about 20″ x 16″ x 16″ (and we can build them up to about 30″ x 30″ x 30″.) What a fabulous gift idea! Let your imagination run wild with the items you could display this way! Plus, all of these materials are Made in the USA! 100% MADE IN THE USA!

Framed Johnny Cash Stamps!

Framed Johnny Cash Stamps!

When we heard that the US Postal Service was gonna issue some Johnny Cash stamps, we knew we would have some! We used black and black (naturally!) mats and a hand finished Black Italian olive wood frame. Excellent!

Yet Another Wonderful Old Watercolour!

Yet Another Wonderful Old Watercolour!

When we framed one we framed three. This is the third of a set of 50 year old French watercolours. We really enjoyed this job! Everything was done archival, with Library of Congress accepted 100% cotton acid free mats and backing boards, using Conservation Reflection Control glass. Oh, and Made in the USA! (Except for the art itself, which is French!)

We recently framed these two items together in an off white with green accent matting and small pewter ribbed moulding. The overall size is about 10″ by 17″. Small and Elegant!

The Big Lebowski Art Print!  Look Closely!

The Big Lebowski Art Print! Look Closely!

This is an interesting piece of art! At Elite Framing we are all Lebowski fans and we just had to get our hands on this cool poster by Mike Matola. He uses the entire script from “The Big Lebowski movie to create this clever piece, handwriting each word to show relief of the three main characters (“You’re out of your element, Donny!”) We matted and framed it in basic black! Fun!

While we are on the cool old French watercolour thing we thought we would share another one. Same artist, same frames etc… plenty cool!

We recently framed this wonderful watercolor for a client, it was an enjoyable job! This fine little piece was painted about 50 years ago. We used a neutral acid-free mat and simple black frame. We also used conservation glass on it to protect it from exposure to light. Fun! and great colors!!

Wonderful Big Thursday Print!

Wonderful Big Thursday Print!

We see this image a lot but this one is in outstanding condition! This print commemorates the Big Thursday tradition from yesteryear. We matted it in Gamecock colors black and garnet and used the Gamecock frame on it. This piece measures about 32″ x 44″, nice and large!

Old USC Caricature Map!

Old USC Caricature Map!

This was a fun piece to frame. It dates from 1992 (wait… that’s not THAT long ago, is it?) and depicts the University of South Carolina campus with downtown Columbia. The artist is M.L. Upchurch. It is kinda large, about 40″ x 30″. We used a double mat (black with garnet) and the Gamecock moulding.
