Legacy Images was started in early 2004 by Paul and Jane Catlin. They wanted to create products to help people leave a legacy for future generations. With a big family of their own, they wanted to help not only their family, but other families as well. The products they began selling were laser engraved and sublimated items.
Then, in early 2005, Legacy Images began selling Legacy Frames, which has been a great addition on the product line and main selling items since. We take your words/designs/ideas and create unique, one of a kind frames. Each picture frame matte is stained to bring out the natural beauty of the wood.
In 2012, we opened our Etsy shop to reach more people, like you. We enjoy being part of this community, connecting with new people and getting to make frames for people all over the world.
Also in 2012, they started a ministry through their church called Legacy Ministries. Through this ministry, Paul takes his laser to children's hospitals around Indiana making Name Frames for each child staying in the hospital. It has been such a blessing to bring a smile to the families going through such a rough time.
Legacy Images was run out of Paul's remodeled barn in Westfield, Indiana until 2019 when we opened our new shop in Sheridan.
