Framed Shadow Boxes are an Excellent Way to Showcase Memmories

We frame lots of paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, and other 3D material, but occasionally we are challenged with framing 3D items such as jerseys, flags, baseballs, and numerous other items. Here is a project we did for a former dentist showcasing various historic items!

A Mississippi State Track and Field Scholarship Letter Changes Man's Life

We frame lots of amazing pieces of artwork and numerous other items for our customers. But, we love it when customers come in with stories about how something changed their life, and they ask us to frame their memories! Recently, Mark Strucko related to us his journey from New Jersey to Mississippi State, where in the early 1980's, the MSU Athletic Department awarded him a scholarship in Track and Field.  He was unclear as to whether his scholarship would be renewed for the second year, and when he received his official letter of award renewal in 1980, he mentioned the elation and relief he felt. Mark talked about the overwhelming friendliness in the area and how his life was changed in a positive way after going to school here and how that later translated into his success in life. Although Mark does not live in Mississippi, he thought it was appropriate that he frame this scholarship letter in Starkville at Chalet Arts, the same frame shop that was in business when he attended Mississippi State! Thank you Mark Strucko for your heartwarming story and allowing us to frame your wonderful memory.
