Grandpa’s Standard Oil Station

December 11, 2014

memorabilia framing

We did this memorabilia framing project for a young man who’s Grandpa owned a Standard Oil station in Wisconsin.

Remember when there were Service Stations, not gas stations? And someone came out, pumped your gas, cleaned the windshield and checked the oil?

Our client’s Dad worked there as a child and young man.  The station and the grandfather were long gone and no one had saved memorabilia. The son found the map and matchbook on Ebay, added a photo and the patch off Grandpa’s shirt and surprised his Dad with the project last Christmas.

Do you have some old family memorabilia that would make a nice gift, maybe with some custom memorabilia framing? Stop in and we’ll help pull it all together in a nice presentation.  tp



Come on in and we can help! Snap a couple of photos of where you plan to hang your project and grab a paint swatch if you want. We can help you with color selection and layouts and even provide an emailed layout if you like. We’ll make it look great in your room!

Our prices are very competitive and our finished product is second to none. We’ve been at this business for over 20 years and know all the tricks that allow us to turn out a product that will make your home, office, or business look great.
