A shadowbox picture frame is a type of frame designed to display and protect three-dimensional items or objects, such as medals, awards, memorabilia, collectibles and even stretched canvases! Unlike regular picture frames that are flat, shadowbox frames have a deep, enclosed space between the glass or acrylic front and the backing board, which allows for the display of objects with depth.
Shadowbox frames are typically made of wood or metal and come in a variety of sizes and styles, from simple and classic to ornate and decorative. The backing board is usually covered with a mat board or fabric to create a background for the displayed items, and the front can be opened for easy access to the contents inside. Shadowbox frames are commonly used for displaying items such as sports jerseys, wedding memorabilia, and military medals, but they can also be used for displaying artwork or photographs with depth, such as sculptures layered collages and canvas paintings.
