Framing Clothes

Custom framing isn’t just for paintings and other works of art. There are a variety of objects and belongings that you could get framed to produce a really personal gift or keepsake for your own home. One thing that is popular to have framed is clothing.

Why get clothes framed?

What do you normally do with old clothes? They eventually get thrown out, donated to a charity store, or handed to a friend or relative. Even if it’s something that’s too sentimental to throw away, it’ll often just get left in an old cardboard box in your attic or somewhere else.

By framing clothes that you want to keep and cherish, you have a way to display them and preserve them for a long time. Framed clothes can also make a great gift for a friend or family member as it can be something that’s really personal to that person and that means a lot to them.

What kind of clothes do people frame?

Maybe you like the idea of framing an item of clothing, but aren’t sure what to go for. Here are a few popular items that we’ve framed in the past:

  • Baby clothes – Your babies aren’t going to stay at that adorable size forever, but you can remember the days when you held them in your arms by framing their baby clothes. Perhaps the outfit you brought them home from the hospital in or another memorable outfit.
  • Christening gowns – Your baby’s christening is a special day, and it’s one that you can remember forever by framing the gown that they wore on that day.
  • Wedding dresses – Brides spend a lot of money on wedding dresses only to wear them once! So, they get put away in storage to be seen every few years and remembered fondly. By framing the dress, or a small part of it such as the veil, you can have it in pride of place in your home.
  • Sports kits – Want to remember your glory days on the high school football team or the cheerleading squad? Or perhaps your child competed in lots of gymnastics competitions and you want to show how proud you are. Framing sports clothing such as jerseys, letterman jackets, cheerleading outfits, and leotards is a great way to commemorate these achievements.
  • Graduation caps – Your graduation day, or your child’s, is another big day to remember. You might have a picture of them holding their diploma up on your wall, but framing the graduation cap or gown is another great way to show your pride.

If you would like an item of clothing framed for your home or as a gift, then contact us or visit our store in Clemmons, NC to get your memories preserved in a custom frame.

The Most Thoughtful Gift

When you’re purchasing a gift for a loved one, you want to make sure it’s something that’s thoughtful and personalized. There’s no gift more thoughtful than commemorating a memory or an achievement that means something to that person in a stylish frame. Whether that’s a photo, poster, diploma, certificate, or other kind of memorabilia, it’s sure to mean a lot to the person receiving the gift.

You could go out to a store and buy a standard frame for this gift, but the best way to preserve the memory is through custom framing. This way, a frame can be completely custom made to fit the piece perfectly, rather than having to cram it into the closest fitting frame. You can also get a frame that’s personalized to the tastes of the recipient, so the frame will look good on their wall as well as fitting the content perfectly.

When you’re having a gift framed with Tanglewood Art and Frame, the best way to go about it is to visit us in store. You can view samples of framed artwork on our website, but here are a few advantages of coming to see us in store.

  • We can answer all the questions you might have about custom framing and the options available to you when framing your personalized gift. This helps you make the best, informed decisions about the kind of frame and fit you want.
  • You can also see all the options available to you by viewing our different styles and materials for frames and mats. So, you can handpick the perfect frame.
  • Ordering a custom framing online limits you to sending in a digital file of the object you want framed. However, if what you want framing is already printed as a physical copy, such as a degree diploma or any other kind of certificate, then it is much easier to take it straight to a frame shop and have it framed.
  • As well as all this, you get to meet our friendly team and experience our excellent customer service first hand!

Why You Should Have It Framed at a Gallery

When you have a piece of art or a photograph you want to display in your home, you’ll need to go out and get it framed. Framing a picture helps to protect it and makes it look good on your wall. When it comes to this task, you have two main options – buy a frame from a store and frame the picture yourself, or go to a professional for custom framing.

Custom framing may sound like an unnecessary investment, but there are lots of advantages to choosing a professional framing service. Here are just a few of those advantages:

Specialized materials

Professional framers have access to high-quality, specialized materials and, more importantly, they understand how and when to use them. Frames available to buy in a store often use standard materials that are prone to damage pieces of art. Professional art framers will use things like glass that protects from UV rays and will know when to use these kinds of materials.

Custom shapes and sizes

Frames available to buy in store are only available in certain dimensions. This means that, if your artwork doesn’t happen to perfectly match one of these standard sized-frames, it will have to be stuffed in to fit the best closest match, which can lead to damage. Professional framers can design a frame specifically to fit your piece of art. So, even if you want to frame something with unusual dimensions or an awkward shape, you can walk away with the perfect fit.


With a custom frame, you can get something that’s truly unique, rather than buying a mass-produced frame that’s available for anyone to buy. This is especially important if what you’re having framed is unique. If you want to frame a nice family photo or your child’s best artwork, then it deserves and equally unique home to live in.


One of the main objectives of framing something is to protect and preserve it, and custom framing is the best way to do this. A professional will use techniques and materials that are intended to keep your art in the best possible condition. Materials that contain acid can wash out and damage artwork, for example. Professional framing will keep your art looking good and will also help to retain its value, helping you to preserve your memories.

If you’re in need of a custom framing service, then contact Tanglewood Art and Frame Gallery. We serve North Carolina including Clemmons, Advance, Winston Salem, Bermuda Run, Lewisville, and Mocksville.

Preserving Memories

Preserving Memories

Now that practically everything has gone digital and online, it is a lot easier to take, store, and access photos. But, think about it, how often do you go through old photos on your phone and laptop and show them to friends and family? It seems like we used to do this a lot more often when we only dealt with actual photo prints. Now we just delete old photos to make room for new ones. It would be a shame to miss out on activities like passing around an old family album to look at embarrassing photos from when we were kids and when Dad still had some hair on his head.

If you lost your phone or dropped it in the bath, how many photos and memories would you lose along with it? If you’re anything like me, then those memories are worth way more than the cost of the phone you’ve just lost. That’s why we’re on a mission to help people restore and preserve their memories.

How we help you to preserve memories

Here at Tanglewood Art and Frame Gallery, we not only sell artwork, but also help to restore your photos and artwork, and frame them to produce a quality piece of custom art. A lot of us take more photos than we used to, but they all just get saved to the cloud and lost in the ether, never to be looked at again. If you’ve got a picture of a happy family memory or a shot of you and your friends having fun, then print it out, bring it in, and get it framed.

Maybe your kid brings home a fabulous piece of art they’ve drawn at school. Instead of sticking it on the fridge for a week or taking a picture of it to upload to Facebook, have it framed in a custom frame that will look great on your wall. Show off your pride, and maybe even embarrass them a little when they get older!

Having photos and artwork framed with museum glass is a great way to preserve it for a long time and present it in a way that you’ll be proud to display in your home. It’s time we gave our family history and memories the attention they deserve again.

If you want to have some of your photos or artwork framed for display, then get in touch with us at Tanglewood Art and Frame Gallery. We’re located in Clemmons, NC, and serve areas across the state, including Advance, Winston Salem, Bermuda Run, Lewisville, and Mocksville.
