Framed butterflies, beetles and other insect displays.
Specimens collected from self-sustaining
insect farms around the world.

"We received our order late last week, and I wanted to drop you a line and let you know we are absolutely thrilled. I have a small collection of framed insects, but the quality of yours far surpasses the others. They look great on our walls, and I can't wait until we can order some more. Thank you so much. "

Welcome to!

As an avid collector of butterflies, and an overall insect enthusiast, I often found myself frustrated with the inferior quality of retail-purchased framed insects, finding myself receiving hastily assembled framed butterflies with missing antennae or simply poor mounting in general . This dissatisfaction had induced me to begin educating myself on creating my own insect frames. After a few years of research and study, I had eventually perfected the intricate techniques involved in setting and mounting delicate butterflies and other insect specimens. With greater confidence, I began to replace previously purchased insect displays with my own.

Simple, streamlined and classic, we have taken a modernist approach to framing our insect subjects. With high quality white matting and backing, admirers are able to truly enjoy the framed butterflies, moths or beetles without any distractions.

So whether you are looking for a framed butterfly as a gift, or a grouping of multiple butterflies or beetles, we are confident that you will find your perfect insect art here on our website.

Environmental concern:

Most of our framed butterflies were raised on butterfly farms or aviaries around the world. Many governments in developing countries are encouraging their people to raise insects for economic advancement rather than other industries that deplete the rain forests, which are essential to most butterfly species. Butterfly farming is self-sustainable and most butterflies and other insects live on an average of only 20 - 60 days. When the farm raised butterflies have died naturally, they are carefully gathered and exported around the world. This method only uses insects that are legally imported into the country as regulated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department.
