Framing mounted medals..

Postby featurepiece » Mon Dec 11, 2017 7:31 pm

Hi

I've asked this question before but maybe someone has discovered a new method........

I've got some mounted medals in to be framed but the customer needs the option to open the frame when needed, remove the mounted medals for various reasons and then return them to the frame after.

Previously I've used 2 little screw eye type things through the mountboard and attached (screwed) into some 5mm mdf at the back and just put the pin from the mounted medals through each hole. Whilst it works it looks a little DIY. I'd prefer something a bit more refined.

Any takers? :)
