So you’ve found the Holy Grail of football shirts – it’s signed, it’s limited edition, it was worn by your favourite player in the FA cup final. It’s gold dust, and it’s certainly not going to get beer spilled down it on your next night out. You have visions of it framed and displayed proudly on the living room. But where can you get a football shirt framed near you?
What will a professional framer do?
A professional framer will know the value of a football shirt, both monetary and sentimental. A framed shirt will be treated with respect in order to display a fantastic football shirt find and to protect the shirt’s value.
A framer will gently hand stitch or pin the shirt into shape, and will not use glue, staple or carpet tape which can damage the delicate shirt material. It will then be stretched across archival foam board and presented in a deep frame mount, so that your shirt isn’t squished against the glass (where it could become damaged by condensation).
A great framer can use colours in the mount to bring out details in the shirt, such as a complementing shade of blue to make your City shirt pop.
