Player’s jerseys are a great collector item for any sport tragic.

They can be framed in a box frame, with additional items if required.

At Final Finish we always stretch jerseys over an acid free fomecore insert, and then we STITCH the assembly to a backing matboard, colour selected to enhance the shirt. Should the shirt ever need to be removed, it can be done without damage.

These shirts are made from fabric with a high synthetic content, and hot melt glue or staples will soon destroy them.  It’s not pretty when your much loved shirt has burn holes or rust marks.

Stitching takes time, and it must be reflected in the framing price.

We can incorporate photographs, tickets, badges or any other small items into to the collage.

A box frame, with a clearance of at least 50mm, is used. No content should touch the glass and a spacing device is necessary. This keeps the fabric off the glass surface, and eliminates damage from humidity, which can cause mould. Glass is breakable, but the only alternative, acrylic, can lead to problems with the combination of static electricity and the nap of the fabric.

There are many spacer products available, we can:

  1. Line the frame rebate with matching matboard over fomecore strips.
  2. Use special spacer insert mouldings; the most popular one has a triangular cross section.
  3. Build an acrylic box.

These collections are an investment and with proper conservation framing they will give you many years of pleasure.
