Welcome to Military Memories and More! We appreciate you taking time to stop by and check us out. We are a family owned custom frame shop that specializes in creating highly unique military shadow boxes and certificate frames.
However, our creative minds do not stop there, we have not yet turned someone away that asks us "Can you frame this for me?". We are very proud to say that. :)
Looking to have a jersey framed? We've got you covered. Have a loved one you want to buy a unique gift for? We have a degree in uniqueness. Just looking for yourself? No problem, we are here to help.
When most people think of what a military shadow box display looks like, they will generally describe something along the lines of a 1 or 2 inch deep frame with a felt backboard displaying medals, ribbons, patches, flags, etc.
While these types of traditional shadowboxes are very nice, we feel that our twist on things make ours EXTRAORDINARY!
When it comes to that uniqueness degree I mentioned above... we took the everyday shadow box case and incorporated the use of custom cut photo mat layouts. By doing this, we find that it adds much more class and respect to the overall look of the project. The semetrical window openings make all of the items in the project POP with elegance.
By using a computerized mat cutter, we are capable of cutting window openings in the mat board that you just can't find anywhere else. On top of that, we have the ability to design a window cutout that is exclusive to your display.
More often than not, we use a double mat layout design with two different mat board colors, which vary depending on if it is an Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard shadow box layout.
Here at Miliary Memories and More, the sky is truly the limit when it comes to creating a custom military shadowbox display case. Give us a call at (309)289-0099 for the BEST customer experience. Be sure to check out our portfolio to see just what we are fully capable of.
Custom Certificate and Diploma Frames
Our second specialty of business, is making high quality certificate and diploma frames. Again, we use double mat layouts to fit the colors scheme of the items, and are able to use a variety of window styles to frame around the certificate document or diploma.
When a person is presented an award for something, has completed schooling or a course, they are generally awarded a certificate for that achievement. Instead of shoving it away in some box or putting it in a photo album , we highly recommend you frame the award and the certificate together.
If you have a military medal with the certificate it came with, this makes a lovely frame display when you pair them together. Be sure to look at our military certificate frames for some examples.
For diploma frames, we are able to turn part of it into a shadow box and include your tassle along with the diploma and a picture if you would like. Our saying goes, "If You Can Imagine It, We Can Make It".
