Design Services by Gamma’s certified picture framers and design staff include recommendations on design techniques and color coordination to make picture framing a work of art.

Gamma’s extensive selection of wood and metal frames are often used in combination with a fillet, a narrow molding inlaid inside the mat, to create a truly unique frame that will add depth and color to custom framed art. The fillet, coordinated with the frame molding, can be used to provide a multi-dimensional look.
Functionally, picture matting provides a spacer to protect art from direct contact with the glass or plexiglass.
Aesthetically, mats create design possibilities that enhance art. Gamma’s mat board selection comes in hundreds of colors, textures, and appearances.
Shadow Box Frames / Display Cases
Gamma’s professional picture framing experience with three-dimensional objects is extensive. We encase everything from WWII military medals, sport jerseys, baby shoes, vacation souvenirs to china dolls and childhood moments, artifacts and collectables. Shadow box frames can be very simple or they can incorporate rich fabrics and woods for a superbly elegant effect.
