War medals and service medals are an important part of a family’s history.

Whether commemorating a loved one’s achievements or remembering their spirit, framing their medals and awards ensures the story lives on.

While object and memorabilia framing into picture frames always offer a larger scope of decorative or presentation options, it is also a chance to preserve items from oxidation leading to tarnishing, discolouration, and fading.

Whether you have a service award from the Army, Air Force or Navy, or commemorative awards from the CFA, MFB, SES, and other rescue services; whether you have a serviceman or woman’s portrait or diary, their service records, their medals, their badges or part of their uniform, all these things can be spared the damage caused by time once framed – thanks to archival and acid-free materials available. This includes acid-free matboards, clear and non-reflective picture framing glass, museum glass, and acid-free backings.
