OUR FRAMING PHILOSOPHY
Anyone can make a frame to encapsulate or display military service items. However we believe few framers do it really well.
Our philosophy is not just to "frame" your service items, but to display them in a way that tells the story of your service in a unique and engaging way.
Read on below to see some of the interesting features we can use to create a customised military service frames for you or your families service.
MILITARY SERVICE RESEARCH
We can offer assistance with service history research for conflicts from WWI to Vietnam. Using enlistment documents, casualty cards, and other available service records in your frame is a great way to tell the stories of military service.
For conflicts post Vietnam no documents are digitised and freely available online, however we can offer advice on how to obtain these documents.
We can use parchment style paper and type writer fronts for service details panels for frames from WWI to Vietnam periods that match military documents of the day to give your frame a tradition or time period look.
MILITARY SERVICE FRAMES
Cannot get to us in Brisbane? No problem we can design and ship our medals and our frames Australia wide. Some items we can also ship to overseas locations outside Australia.

MILITARY BADGES, REPLICA MEDALS, AND UNIFORM ACCOUTREMENTS
We stock most military badges, medals, and uniform accoutrements to enhance your military service frame. If there are items we don't stock, we have numerous avenues to acquire bespoke badges or items for that extra special touch.
We stock medals and badges from WWI to current conflicts for all three services.
If you are unsure of your families medal entitlements we can also provide assistance on how you can apply to confirm what medals your ancestors are entitled to.
ARMY COLOUR PATCHES
For WWI and WWII Army frames we create colour patches that match those worn on the uniforms of the day. We recreate these colour patches to the sizes and standards exactly as worn on your ancestors uniforms during these conflicts.
If you are unsure of the correct colour patches we can research your ancestors service history to determine the correct colour patches.
MILITARY TOPOGRAPHIC MAPS
We have a vast collection of scanned military topographic maps from WWI to modern day conflicts. These maps make a colourful and unique frame backdrop for medals and badges reflecting the regions you or your family member served in.
CUSTOM METAL ARTWORK
We can custom make unique metal panels that look like a metal panel removed from a military vehicle, aircraft or ship. Any specific unit badges, service details, or logos can be hand painted onto these panels.
They make a unique feature backdrop for service medals and badges.
UNIQUE OR BULKY MILITARY ITEMS
Have a large, odd shaped, or bulky item that would enhance your frame? We have framed all manner of military items from armour plate webbing, berets, vests to daggers and knives.
REPLICA MILITARY MUNITIONS AND SHELL CASINGS
We have a selection of 9mm to 7.62 shell casings we can use within your frame. We also have .303 shell casings used in WWI and WWII. We offer a range of replica military munitions from grenades to artillery shells to provide a very unique feel for your frame.
OLD PHOTO RESTORATIONS
If you have old photos in poor condition that you want to include in your frame, we can digitally restore and reprint these items to enhance your frame.
