Traditional Frames with Mat
Baboo understands that displaying an image in a traditional matted frame is timeless and classic. Framing and matting adds elegance, sophistication, and beauty to any type of art medium or photograph. With frames and mattes available in a variety of colors, textures, and sizes, we have the ability to enhance your work and give it a truly finished appearance.
A key component of visual presentation in picture framing, the matte is the border that surrounds a photograph or artwork piece. It’s the window within the frame that reveals the image and depending on the color chosen, the matte highlights certain aspects of the piece. Professional framing with or without a matte adds the finishing touch to your work and transforms it into a masterpiece.
Shadowboxes are an innovative way to display mementoes and treasures that might otherwise become lost on a shelf. These cases have glass fronts that enclose three-dimensional objects and hang on the wall in a unique display. Using the same archival standards as our other framing and mounting, Baboo utilizes the shadowbox depth to create a piece of artwork filled with memories and special meaning. Shadowboxes can contain anything from a selection of seashells from a favorite beach vacation to trinkets that mark significant events in your life. A shadowbox is the perfect way to preserve important items in a clever visual display.
Float frames are a clever way of displaying both Gallery Wrap Canvas as well as Gallery Plexiglas®. They received their name because they create the illusion that the artwork is floating within the frame instead of encased in it. Amateur and professional artists find this alternate framing method ideal as it maximizes display space and gives the piece a contemporary feel.
Float frames anchor to the support bars on the back of a stretched canvas piece or face mounted plexiglas® mount without covering any part of the artwork. They’re available in a variety of sizes to accommodate different depths and create a stunning presentation.
Finishing your artwork by mounting it in a metal frame gives it a modern, streamlined appearance perfectly suited for in home display or art gallery showings. Metal frame materials range from gold tones to pewter hues and have various widths to either add strength to the piece or create a simplistic border. Metal frames add a sense of value to an image without being overpowering or distracting. The right metal frame can complement existing décor or transform a piece into the focal point of the room. These eye-catching frames are available in different depths, some able to accommodate stretched canvas artwork.
Prominent features in commercial advertising, such as posters in movie theaters, lightboxes are highly effective tools because of their visibility and size. That technology has found its way into the photography and art sectors as visual artists use lightboxes for unique displays. The inserted images are backlit or edge-lit, which creates a dynamic, eye-catching and vibrant effect.
LED lightboxes are thinner, lighter, more energy-efficient, and lower maintenance than lightboxes that use fluorescent tubes. It’s easy to switch out images with LED lightboxes because they are either side-lit or backlit. Backlighting the image with LEDs creates uniform light that is gallery quality, has a cinematic feel, and makes any colors in the image pulsate with life and vibrancy. With the new acrylic materials in use, when light originates at the edge of the Plexiglas, it diffuses beautifully all the way through the box. LED lightboxes are self-contained and available with internal or external power.
