Framed Newspaper Article!

Framed Newspaper Article!

Folks like to commemorate events that are covered in the newspaper by framing an original copy. We recently helped a client layout this project. We used black acid free mats (always good on newsprint!) and a black 2″ wood frame with a gold rope motif (Made in the USA!) This piece measures about 30″ x 24″.

Framed Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well Poster!

Framed Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well Poster!

The Grateful Dead recently celebrated their 50th anniversary by playing three sold out (waaaaay sold out) shows in Chicago. One lucky customer of ours attended all three shows and brought home a commemorative poster of the event. We framed it in a flashy gold frame and used black suede mats and gold bottom mats. We placed the tickets from the show in cutouts in the mat and even included a commemorative pin in the arrangement. This piece measures about 43″ tall by 26″ wide. “Listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul…” indeed!

Framed Vertical Triptych! By SC Artist Scotty Peek!

Framed Vertical Triptych! By SC Artist Scotty Peek!

This was a fun project, local artist Scotty Peek had created a three piece oil painting grouping that simulated the stacked windows in an office (a co-worker was retiring and this was her view from her desk!) We built three frames and attached them together to hang as one piece. What a thoughtful and well-executed gift! This piece measures over five feet tall! If you have an unusual framing project call us at Elite Framing in Columbia, SC. We have ideas, come get you some.

Famed George Rogers Autographed Football Jersey!

Famed George Rogers Autographed Football Jersey!

The greatest player in Gamecock football history! Big George was something to watch. We framed this retro mesh jersey (old school!) in a deep, beveled black moulding. We hand stitched the jersey onto a black matboard. There are hidden spacers keeping the glass from touching the jersey. If you need a jersey frame give us a call here at Elite Framing in Columbia’s historic 5 Points shopping and entertainment district.
