Honest Eds Sign Custom Frame
I probably don’t have to tell most of you local readers that what we have here is a very nice hand-painted sign from the one and only Honest Ed’s. The art of hand lettered sign painting is alive and well in that store, and we are huge fans of this particular art form. We think it looks great in it’s new simple black wood frame and very thin black mat. This will serve as a great memento once this Toronto landmark finally closes it’s doors.

Here is a piece of paper cut artwork by local artist Eric Wang of Simulacrum Studios. This piece demonstrates his contemporary interpretation of traditional chinese paper cut art. He is able to push the boundaries of what can be achieved by utilizing modern laser-cutting technology. We floated his art inside of a white shadowbox in order to reveal the interplay of light and shadow falling on and below the paper.

Let us help you to get your medals and memorabilia out of your drawers and onto your walls.


This mini Art Nouveaux style advertisement is the reverse side of an old card, probably used in some type of board game. It was discovered underneath the floorboards of a house while undergoing renovations. Things are looking up for this lonely piece of paper now, since it will be happily resting on the wall instead.
