Our Simple 4-Step Process

At FCS, we believe in quality. Our traditional composites are always hand-crafted and never a digital printout. An FCS photo composite is not merely a flat photo print. We create a rich dimensionality by layering with molded mortise shapes to create an heirloom-quality keepsake of your group. Your group's unique style and spirit can be expressed through hand-painted embellishments like crests, seals, banners, flowers, athletic logos, and other touches. We use the finest quality materials and designs to ensure that your composite will remain intact for decades.

At the core of one of our traditional composites is a colorful conservation grade mat board. Your pictures may be placed directly on the mat board, or they may be placed in colorful individual frames that provide a true three-dimensional presentation of your photographs as they extend outward. The assembled mat board stands inside a structure created by tempered museum plate glass and solid wood framing. We install heavy-duty hardware and wire so you can hang your composite elegantly and safely protect the heritage of your organization!
