Football, rugby and sports shirt framing......more info
Framing sports shirts of any description can be a minefield, especially if the shirts are signed! No-one knows what the eventual worth of a signed shirt could be.
One of the most expensive shirts we've framed was signed by Motherwell's Phil O'Donnell shortly before his tragic and untimely death. The client wanted to make sure the shirt was preserved in pristine condition, and used the best material available.
As with any job, there is a right and a wrong way to frame a shirt. Ian's background in textile design and construction (City & Guilds certified, 1980) means he has a long & well founded knowledge of how to work with any kind of fabric, and just what should and shouldn't be done with it.
