 We do not just Frame Medals, we create memories Framing By Design

Our dedicated and specialised long term experience with detailed high quality finishing speaks for itself. It has been our privilege to have created many, many hundreds of medal frames for families, collectors and institutions both in New Zealand and Australia. Some of our work has even gone further afield to the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and Singapore. Each family heirloom that we create is bespoke and individually handcrafted by us to preserve the past for future family generations. We Will Remember Them.

Protect your full size mounted medals in our Medal Case Frames

We have designed and manufacture Medal Case Frames, that in addition to the mounted medals being secured inside the frame, there is also a photo in its own the frame.

All photo restoration including resizing, digital imaging and production services are completed by us in-house. The end result is significantly impressive and is a popular option with both families and collectors alike. 

Available in a choice of timber frames, to which we fit a premium UV protective Museum Glass®, delivering amazing clarity. Museum Glass® provides long lasting protection ensuring that your medal ribbons and photo are protected from UV breakdown and degradation, making it a truly worthwhile long term family heirloom.

Mounted medals are retained and displayed in our Medal Case Frame, with removal and reinstatement of your mounted medals being a very easy and straightforward.

Photos, Badges, Insignia and Documents  

In many instances due to the quantity of items required to be framed, which may include insignia such as: multiple photos, badges, flashes, patches, slides and documents it is not practical in terms of long term preservation to offer a Medal Case Frame (opening frame) as a solution. In this regard we offer our bespoke custom made sealed frames, each of which is designed specific to the family's requirements.

Many families have accumulated a significant amount of military memorabilia and other treasures and it is important to present as many as possible of these items  to tell the full story. Otherwise they may become lost remnants which over time run the risk of being disguarded.

Framing in one of our bespoke frames is a great way to keep every thing together for future generations and display it in pride of place rather than leave it languishing and forgotten about in a drawer.

Another option to also consider should you wish to wear the mounted medals, is to frame them in a Medal Case Frame, and have a separate sealed frame containing the insignia and documents.This then provides you with the best option available. Should your family select this option, consider in investing in a set of replica medals for wear.
