American flag shadow box

Making a shadow box display frame is a multi-step process involving structural engineering, thematic design, object mounting, and sustainability. When you have a precious object or a series of trinkets and medals, a shadow box art is a great idea to bring all those elements together to convey a common theme with some added dimension.

The shadowbox also serves as protective encasement for these precious objects to preserve the integrity of the objects/artworks for many years to come. If one does not take proper care in designing the shadowbox, the artworks behind the glazing are susceptible to deterioration and damage.

At first glance, the Maryland State Flag was very interesting. It appeared to be very old and a bit fragile, so this would be a challange for our custom framing experts here at The Frame Room. The colors and the look of the flag were very specific to a Maryland state flag or possibly a Baltimore city flag.

In this case study, we'll break down each of the steps we made to get this awesomely tattered Maryland State Flag into a customized shadowbox frame.
