Newspaper articles can be challenging to frame, given the different sizes, shapes and pages they are printed. We’ve taken these two articles and composed a tidy arrangement using black matting. We think the extra black mat bevel gives a focusing element to the design. The frame is a wonderful hand-finished Italian black 7/8″ contemporary design. If you have newspaper framing to consider gives us a call at Elite Framing, located in the historic 5Pts shopping and entertainment district.

Here is a neatly framed magazine cover. A shabbily chic white frame with a white linen mat. We even clipped the rest of the magazine and placed it in a picket on the back of the frame!

Framed Nikky Finney Newspaper!

Framed Nikky Finney Newspaper!

Here is a nicely framed newspaper article. Commemorating the removal of the Confederate Flag from the South Carolina State House grounds, celebrated poet Nikky Finney’s words were published as a special edition to The State Newspaper on July 9th, 2015. We framed it in a palmetto embossed moulding, celebrating the common theme of The Palmetto State. The poet was kind enough to sign our newspaper! The text is as follows, “It is the pearl blue peep of day. All night the Palmetto sky was seized with the aurora and alchemy of the remarkable. A blazing canopy of newly minted light fluttered in while we slept. We are not free to go on as if nothing happened yesterday, not free to cheer as if all our prayers have finally been answered today. We are free, only, to search the yonder of each other’s faces, as we pass by, tip our hat, hold a door ajar, asking silently who are we now? Blood spilled in battle is two-headed: horror and sweet revelation. Let us put the cannons of our eyes away forever. Our one and only Civil War is done. Let us tilt, rotate, strut on. If we, the living, do not give our future the same honor as the sacred dead – of then and now – we lose everything. The gardenia air feels lighter on this new day, guided now by iridescent fireflies, those atom-like creatures of our hot summer nights, now begging us to team up and search with them for that which brightens every darkness. It will be just us again, alone, beneath the swirling indigo sky of South Carolina, working on the answer to our great day’s question: Who are we now? What new human cosmos can be made of this tempest of tears, this upland of inconsolable jubilation? In all our lifetimes, finally, this towering undulating moment is here. -Nikky Finney, July 9th, 2015.”

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″.

This one was tricky, a newspaper article that went over a few pages and had different size portions. We had to pay attention to size and scale when cutting the mat. We used a double black matboard and a contemporary ribbed Italian black moulding. This piece measures about 24″ square. Excellent!

One way to preserve a newspaper article is to frame it! We recently did these three, we often use black mats and black frames for newsprint. We added a second black mat so the white bevel gives it definition! Crisp, clean and versatile. A bonus is this moulding is Made in the USA! Right here in Columbia, actually, by our friends at Southwinds Moldings.

Framed Derek Jeter Newspaper and Yankee Stadium Ticket!

Framed Derek Jeter Newspaper and Yankee Stadium Ticket!

What a dramatic final home game for this Yankee legend. In his final at bat in Yankee Stadium he hits the game winning single. Nice guys can finish first! We matted the newspaper in a neutral grey mat with Yankee blue bottom mat. We placed the ticket on top of the blue mat to enhance and show off the perforated edges. We then used a black ash moulding (Made in USA!) in the rounded shape of a baseball bat, bats are often made of ash, too! This piece measures about 20″ x 36″. If you have important sports memorabilia and you re looking for a Columbia frame shop to properly frame it give us a call at Elite Framing in Columbia’s Five Points shopping district.

Recently we had the task of framing this newspaper article. The tough part was that it was two separate articles! We were able to paste it together so it appears as one page. We used black mats with a blue inner mat and a walnut stained rustic wood moulding. The moulding is made right here in Columbia SC picture frames! Made in the USA!! (Now I’m all hungry!)
