Framing collections

Do you have a collection of pictures, buttons, pins, records, holiday cards, ornaments and/or odds and ends that belonged to someone in your family? Framing is a great way to display something with special meaning. If you’re not sure where to begin, bring them to us and we will offer some design ideas.

One customer came to Wyman Frame with a box full of rusty metal tools and other items that had been dug up around the old shade tree where his relative worked on cars and farm machinery.

We looked at samples and talked about what he had in mind, and came up with a final design that won First Place and Best in Show in the Creative Arts – Collections division at the 2016 Oklahoma State Fair.

Carla Folks works at Wyman Frame, a division of Dale Rogers Training Center (DRTC). Carla has been a Certified Picture Framer since 1983 and has framed for DRTC for three years.

DRTC is the oldest and largest community vocational training and employment center for people with disabilities in Oklahoma. With multiple locations in Oklahoma, DRTC trains or employs more than 1,100 people with disabilities per year. Visit us online: DRTC.org
