Are you thinking about framing a sports shirt or football shirt and need some advice?
We have been framing sports shirts for many years and have a wealth of experience.
We start by creating a shape or armature for the shirt based upon the size, shape and design of the shirt. This allows us to stretch the shirt over the armature and stitch it at the back, giving the shirt it’s framed shape and reducing any creasing.
This is then attached to a backing board so that the shape of the shirt is proud of the backing.
We always use deep frames which allow us to display the shirt without it touching the glass. Into the frame we pace the mount(s) cut to size with the aperture for the shirt and any extra apertures as necessary. These go against the glass and are at the front when viewed, with the shirt just behind and the backing board to the rear, giving a “shadow” effect as you look through the “Window” in the mount.
