Shadow Box Gift Ideas

A shadow box can make a really wonderful gift for a friend or loved one. Ink & Hammer Company has created a very unique way of dressing up the plain old shadow box. First, they will custom build a shadow box out of solid wood to the size you want and paint it the color you want, but more importantly, they screen print a personalized design on the glass of the shadow box. The design is printed on the inside of the shadow box so it is protected and won’t be damaged or scratched off. Screen printing also allows you to get a lot more detail than you can with cut out vinyl stickers. You can choose from a wide variety of designs and they will customize it with the information you provide. These would make a wonderful wedding gift, newborn gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift, or a gift just because. And who says it has to be a gift at all? Just buy one for yourself 🙂

If you’re looking for a great idea to wow someone special to you, then I highly recommend checking them out.

Here’s an invitation I made for my friends Hunter and Ashley. It’s printed 2/0 with an added color via the ampersand stamp.

Jeff and Delaine

Here’s the invitation I designed for my good friends Jeff and Delaine. Jeff is from Spartanburg and Delaine is from Charleston. The bride wanted something that represented Charleston and Spartanburg to be present in the invite. I wrote down several things that identify the two locations and I landed on a concept that hints at the history of the places. Charleston was once filled with numerous cotton plantations and Spartanburg was once a large textile town filled with countless mills around the area. The cotton boll represents Delaine and her natural beauty. Jeff is represented by the line pattern in the background which is a simplified form of the lines of thread stretched across the looms in the mills.
