Specialty Framing

You may be surprised at the range of things that can be framed for display. This is our specialty area and some of our customers travel a long way with unusual items to frame. Football shirts signed by famous footballers are popular but we have also framed boxing gloves, film props, wedding bouquets and military medals amongst many others. Below are some examples.

Football Shirts

Framed Real Madrid Football Shirt

We frame a lot of football shirts. These England and Real Madrid shirts were framed as a pair for a customer and were particulary valuable having been signed by a host of starts including David Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Ronaldinho.

Terminator Mask

Terminator Mask

Fans of the Terminator films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger will recognise this. It was actually a cast taken from the original film prop. It arrived with us in a plain grey colour. Our team of in-house artists set about recreating the original look.

Terminator Mask

It was spray painted in silver and burnished to look like it had been in the wars, then the eyes and teeth were painted in to give the final realistic look. It was then framed using a perspex dome to enhance the 3-D effect.

Football Boots

Steven Gerrard Football Boot

Signed football boots from Steven Gerrard (left) and Frank Lampard (right). Having been carefully mounted they were then framed using perspex domes which is an ideal solution for this type of subject.

Alexander Arrow

Alexander Arrow

One of many film props we have framed. This was an original prop from the blockbuster Alexander starring Colin Farrell, Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom. The arrow was framed together with a signed photograph of Colin Farrell and was destined for the customer’s home cinema room.

Sports Memorabilia

Villa Shirt

This list of sports memorabilia we have framed is almost endless. Photos, shirts, tickets and programmes are the most common. On the left a multi-signed Aston Villa shirt with a programme and team photo. On the right a keen Villa supporter asked us to display his tickets from every single away match in the 2006-7 season.

Original Pencil drawing

We have many years experience of framing military items. These two valuable original pencil drawings had been signed by several famous WW II pilots. They were framed using conservation methods and presented with pilots wings and a squadron badge.

Wedding Bouquet

Another very popular framing subject are wedding momentos. The wedding photos are an obvious starting point but we have also framed menus, orders of service and even cake decorations.

The bride’s bouquet shown on the left was presented in a deep box frame lined with white silk.

Almost Anything Else

There are many more examples: a boxing glove signed by Mike Tyson, Jenson Button’s racing suit, cigarette card sets framed with a glass back so the writing on the back of the cards can be read. In fact there are not many things we have been asked to frame that could not be done, so if you have something unusual you you would like to display, bring it in to us for our expert opinion.

Right: a set of marathon medals and a child’s Good Luck note make a great display for the office.
