Every framing project the Joint Base Charleston Framing & Engraving facility in the Arts and Crafts Center does is custom - You pick out the frame, matting and give us your vision on how you see the finished product. We are able to custom design a framed gift that will "wow" you and the person receiving it. Additional openings, specialty cuts, floating an image - all are creative alternatives to simply framing a picture. Want to add a personal message? Our in-house engraving allows you to one-stop-shop and walk away with a personalized masterpiece. Do you know someone who is retiring? A great memento of years serving our country is a shadowbox. Either bring in your own and we can organize your box with your items for you or purchase a shadowbox from us and the layout is included in the cost of the box! Patches, coins, dog tags, uniforms, scarves.... all make a box of lasting memories. Stop by the Arts and Crafts Center on the Air Base for complete details on our services or call (843) 963-1936.
