You want to frame your what?

A family of regular customers brought in something that we can honestly say we’ve never framed before. Their son had some shoulder surgery done a while back and they wanted to frame his x-ray. They also wanted to include the metal pin that was used to hold the bones in place. Always up for a challenge, we jumped at the chance to make the items look terrific together. The customers did a great job choosing the perfect frame. We steered them to a mat design that would look great and allow us to display the pin properly. We advised them that a job like this really calls for Museum Glass. The darker colors and the depth both showcase the non-glare quality of the Museum
Glass. We can’t wait for them to see how it turned out!

    That picture looks amazing its a great idea. Have been searching the Internet for tips on how to frame an original x-ray. What did you use behind this in the frame to make the x-ray so clear?

      Aileen – it wasn’t a traditional X-ray like what you usually think of. It was an opaque, high quality digital photograph, so it didn’t matter what we put behind it. It was just like framing a print or photo. Thanks for your interest, tho’.
