Framed Guidons And Military Flags
We custom frame guidons and military flags from all branches of the service. Each flag is framed with the highest regard for quality using acid-free materials and UV protected glass or acrylic. All framed guidons undergo strict quality checks to insure the completed project is not only visually outstanding, but fulfills your custom design requirements. Military guidons by themselves represent only a small part of the framing process. An elaborate design may contain a number of objects placed into the frame that includes the guidon, unit patches, insignia, coins, medals and a name plate. Calvary guidons and battalion colors are often framed and given as farewell or retirement gifts. We have framed these to include a number of personal objects. If you are looking for a simple flag frame with a simple design, we offer the presentation case shadowbox. For a more elaborate gift presentation, we can design the framed guidon to match the personality of the soldier. Below are several examples of framed flags and guidons.
Presentation Shadowbox With Flag and Medals:
One of the most popular ways to frame a flag is to place it inside a deep presentation shadowbox frame. The placement of medals and other memorabilia are often included in the frame as a tribute to a long and distinguished military career. This example was presented as a retirement gift, and includes rank, insignias, patches, medals and a custom name plate.
