    These will make fabulous Holiday gifts, and starting at just $17, they will work for everyone! You send us the files so there is no printing pressure from you. Just give us about 16 days and come pick up your shiny new masterpiece. We love them for groupings of Instagram shots. So cute! You can even print art on them like we did with some of our own Chicago pieces by Todd Mack.

    Maybe the woodblocks aren’t your thing or you need it like, right now? We’ve got NEW on the spot framing for your 4×4 Instagram prints! Bring in your printed image, pick out a cute lil’ 5×5 frame, a white or black mat, and we’ll assemble it all for you and you’re on your way!

      For the Love of Baskets

        We continue to get unique examples of shadowboxes at Foursided! After so many detailed blog posts you may think you’ve seen it all…but not even close. These gorgeous woven baskets needed some extra attention in a custom shadowbox frame and expert stitching techniques to attach them.

        Baskets_Wall_webDuring the framing consultation, our designers went over the best way to preserve and attach the baskets for longevity. They decided on ideal placement and orientation for stunning visual impact.

        alteredtable_webIn this case, our customer opted for the stark contrast of a white matboard to show each basket to its best advantage. Doesn’t the finished product have a contempo vibe? This look is very popular for the customer with a modern flare.

        Baskets_Progress_webPictured above: the piece gets its finishing touches with glass, sizable walls (to create the full shadowbox effect) and is measured to perfection.

        AngledWall_webWhat an eye-catching result! Every gallery wall needs a piece like this to add depth and interest. Just call us basket cases…
