Box framing and laminating are alternatives to custom picture framing. This is a permanent processes that can be done for posters or prints.
Box frames come in a variety of laminate colored sides. You can do either a traditional box mount that is flush on the side or you can add a colored boarder around the image similar to a mat. These are very light in weight and have no glass. They come in a matte or gloss finish and go in size up to 47” x 72”.
Lamination is the process of permanently mounting your document to a wood substrate and lacquering over it. You have seen these traditionally done to diplomas and certificates. Traditionally we have done walnut or mahogany trim around the image with a gold trim and bevel. This has a very specific look to it and can be hung in conjunction with framed certificates and documents on a wall.
