Do you have a special keepsake or souvenir that you want to share with others and keep protected? Then, a shadow box frame is the perfect solution.

Shadow box frames allow you to create a unique and personal display of your keepsakes. Imagine your pictures from birthdays, school memories, graduations or any other special event being displayed with special keepsakes in a shadow box frame.

A child's accomplishments, like a sports photo along with medals or other sports items make a wonderful shadow box display. Shadow box frames can be hung on a wall or placed on a flat surface for an eye catching display.

Shadow box picture frames can be found in a variety of sizes, colors, shapes and depths to accommodate almost anything you decide to display.  They come in a variety of standard colors like white, walnut, blue, green, red and basic black colored frames.

A standard ready made shadow box can be found in either a rectangular or square frame shape with depths ranging from ½" to 1 ¾". You can also have a shadow box frame custom made if you want a unique shape or depth (up to 7" deep). Custom shadow box frames can be made to hold sports jerseys, collector plates, flags, sports memorabilia and just about anything else.

Shadow box frames allow you to display your special pictures or unique collectibles while protecting them from damage. There are many items that are perfect for displaying inside a shadow box. All you have to do is use a little creativity and you'll find lots of ideas. Here are a few ideas you can do with using a ready made shadow box frame:

1. Post major news events that touched your life. Maybe you or a family member had their achievement headlined in the newspaper. You could protect and share your news clippings in a shadow box frame along with other meaningful tokens.

2. Do you have a precious collection that stays hidden away in a box? No matter what you collect, you can show them off in a shadow box frame while keeping them clean and protected. This could be an old spoon collection, letter openers, political pins, and just about any other small collectible item.

3. Are you a gardener who wants to enjoy your flowers year round? Save those beautiful blooms by drying them and displaying them in a shadow box. Enjoy your garden indoors with a dried flower display that will blend with any decor.

4. You can proudly display athletic accomplishments whether they're your medals or your kids. Medals and ribbons shouldn't be hidden away in a box but should be displayed proudly.

5. Are you a beachcomber? You can show off those beautiful shells you have collected over the years. A shadow box display of your shell collection will bring a smile to your face when you think back to all your special trips to the ocean.

6. Have you collected sports memorabilia from a specific team or event? Show off your team spirit with a shadowbox frame display. How about a musical event, show or concert you went to? If you collected memorabilia from a favorite recording artist, protect it and display it in a shadow box frame.

A shadow box frame is the perfect solution for displaying anything that is important to you. If it is special enough for you to save and collect it, don't hide it away. Display your memories and mementos so you can be happily reminded of those special times every time you see your shadow box frame.
