Can I Frame a Skateboard Deck as Art?

Is it possible to frame a skateboard deck as art? At Fabulous Frames & Art, it is! We specialize in challenging custom-framing projects and, when a customer brought us a skateboard deck signed by the Cincinnati Reds, plus event tickets and photos, we relished the opportunity to create a custom shadowbox to display the memorabilia.


A sporty black frame with red accents perfectly echoes the bright red of the deck. The mat is black suede, which creates the deepest black background possible.

Of course, you don’t have to frame your skateboard deck in order to display it in your home. Here is a beautiful photo of a wall grouping courtesy of Apartment Therapy:
