In the Beginning - Works of Art
Our founder started the Cast Paper industry as a retired school teacher. Originally, the large, sculpted images were designed and sold as high-end works of art. The majority of these pioneering images are still available in our product lineup today.

Our Hand-Crafted Cast-Paper Bas Relief Process
It’s our signature creation. We invented it. We are the go-to source for bas-relief awards, plaques and recognition programs in North America. We are very proud of each and every unique product we develop.
What is Bas Relief?
The most common examples of bas relief are coins. Every letter and image on a coin is in bas relief. That is, it projects outward from the surface of the coin to give it a three dimensional appearance. For your awards, we can set your logo, image or graphic in bas relief using the ancient art of making paper by hand.
1. DESIGN THE AWARD
Our creative team will develop designs according to your specifications, budget and brand guidelines.
2. SCULPT THE NEGATIVE MOLD
Once you have selected a design, a negative mold is created to bring your logo or image to life. We then produce one or many replications using our hand-made paper process.
3. FABRICATE THE PAPER
Using Cotton Linter, sourced in the United States or Canada, we create a pulp using a combination of water and a solution that helps preserve it.
4. MOLD THE PAPER
The paper mixture is pressed by hand into the negative or sculpted mold. It is left to cure before further processing.
Any colors needed are applied by hand after the paper is fully cured.
6. CUSTOM FRAMING
We design and build custom shadow-box frames to accommodate the depth of each bas relief award.
