FRAMING FOOTBALL SHIRTS OPTIONS
Framing football shirts is quite a time-consuming job. The first decision made between the customer and the framer is how to fold the sleeves. This can impact greatly on how big the overall frame is.
The most common method is to double over the sleeves of the shirt, tucking them slightly in. This reduces the overall size of the frame.
Once this is agreed the next step is to decide on the which box frame method is best to enhance the shirt. It is necessary to box frame shirts as the extra depth of the moulding will ensure that the material is kept away from the glass and sit back in a bath of colour.
There are two basic framing methods.
- To surround the shirt with a mount of no more than 2 inches in width. This mount sits at the front of the frame pressed against the glass. It creates the impression that one is looking through a window at the shirt. This is a very attractive method as the mount casts a shadow around the shirt and enhances its depth and three-dimensionality.
2. Mount the shirt on a coloured mount card and create spacers of the same colour. This method is more open in feel and works very harmoniously with the colour of the shirt.
Box frame mouldings are not produced in the ranges that other frames are made. They are manufactured in all the prime colours, and black and white and grey so there should be one that compliments any shirt. I have framed many shirts and have yet to be stumped choosing a frame.
The client usually has a very clear idea about the colour choice for their frame and surround mount, although they may on occasion need to be swayed away from making an unsympathetic choice.
So the eye is not sent into a frenzy by having different focal points it is best to complement the shirts colour but not to compete with it. Although there are no hard and fast rules, keeping the mount colour and the frame colour in the same colour range although with different tones can work very well.
The price of framing football shirts
All depends on the overall size of the frame and the amount of work needed to complete it. The client might wish a plaque or a dedication to be included. This will require a second window to be cut into the surrounding mount and will also increase the overall size of the frame.
To reduce weight the picture framer must try to keep the overall size of the frame down.
