Offers Plaques & Awards sales and Custom Engraving Service.

Quality, custom laser engraving and sublimation is what you’ll find here. Glass, acrylic, wood and other materials can be turned into going-away gifts, commemorative keepsakes, awards and more. Each work is uniquely individual and customized to fit your needs. Even with a seven-day turnaround, the staff creates pieces that will stand out. We put a more decorative touch because we want it to be special. Be sure to check out what we can do with sublimation, a process that permanently bonds almost any image you want to tiles and even metal to create stunning, personal pieces of art.

In addition to framing prints, original artwork, photographs, and memorabilia, we also specialize in shadowboxing, textiles and other unique custom framing techniques.

We fire your piece and have it ready for you in 14-21 days. A perfect place for friends and family to get creative together. Have a little one?

Offers Wood Working Service and Self Help Center.

A little different from the others, the Wood Shop is geared more towards the “self-helper.” Take the three-hour safety class to earn your qualification card. You can then utilize the shop to work on your own projects. A wonderful variety of wood working equipment is available for customer usage for a very reasonable fee. Be sure to check out the available classes where you can learn to make pens, and decorative cutting boards. We also produce custom order items to include, but not limited to, coin holders, specialized plaques and shadow boxes.
