2. Shadow Box Frames With Photo Prints Or Direct Prints On Hahnemühle Paper

The high-end, brand name paper is matted evenly and reliably with museum card. This prevents distortions, and in this version, the edges are slightly elevated. You can customise the passe-partout around your picture with a width anywhere between 5 - 20 cm. In addition to photo prints, we also offer pigment prints on 5 different kinds of Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper.

  • Our William Turner with a matte watercolour texture is excellent for authentic portraits or extraordinary photo concepts.

  • Our Fine Art Pearl is pure white with a silky surface for great depth with precise contrasts for colour and black-and-white photography.

  • Our cotton Photo Rag has a fine, soft finish and is great for all kinds of images and offers great depth.

  • Torchon with a coarse, bright white finish for extravagant reproduction with a three dimensional feel.

  • Last but not least, our Fine Art Baryta. Glossy surface and classic baryta texture.

3. Shadow Box Frame With A Floating Photo On Aluminum Dibond

The distance between the picture and the frame creates the impression the image is floating. The photo’s separation from the frame makes it the center of attention, while the frame provides an elegant border. The picture is evenly mounted on aluminium Dibond for a long-lasting and durable result.

  • Photo paper: matte or glossy Fuji Crystal DP II

  • Sturdy aluminium Dibond: Stability and low weight, even in large formats

  • The mounted photo appears to float 1 cm above the back

  • Passe-partout width: from 5 - 15 cm

4. Shadow Box Frame With Floating Passe-Partout: More Depth For Your Photo

  • Photo paper: Fuji Crystal DP II in matte or glossy

  • The mat appears to float 1 cm above the picture

  • Passe-partout width: Between 3 cm and 30 cm

  • 10 passe-partout colours to choose from

The Shadow Box Frame With Various Options: At WhiteWall, The Choice Is Yours

Our shadow box frames add a gallery character to your pictures. At WhiteWall, we place your photo in an extra deep frame with some distance to the outer glazing. As always, you have some options to choose from here as well: For an original photo print on aluminium Dibond, you photo is laminated completely onto the aluminium Dibond backing and then presented in the frame. Alternatively, you can have your original photo print or fine art print applied to a coloured backing of your choice at a distance to the frame. For a floating image effect, we laminate your picture on the aluminium Dibond backing and attach it with a distance of approx. 1 cm from the backing. The image appears to float in the frame. We also offer the passe-partout option as a floating version, which adds even more depth to the image. You can specify any distance between object and frame. You can optionally choose an image with a white border as well.

The Freedom Of Choice At WhiteWall: Your Shadow Box Frame Is Made To Order

It isn’t always easy to choose and we do want you to think about it well – because it is important that you choose exactly right for your picture. Our shadow box frame is available in various colours: in black oak, in brown maple or in white maple.
