Football display cases

Post by JonathanB » Tue 23 Apr, 2019 9:34 am

Good morning everyone -
I have a signed football to frame and my client would like to have this presented in an acrylic box. I'm then going to make a plinth for the box and following a previous suggestion from Mark Lacey, I'm going to insert a mirror in the base so that all the signatures show up well (thanks Mark). I'm sure I remember a thread on here some time ago, but for the life of me I can't find it. Does anybody know of a supplier of top quality boxes that would fit the bill? I've found one in Lion which is quite expensive and lots on the internet that are not. Cost is not particularly an issue providing the quality is there. Does anybody have any feedback on the best place to try? Has anybody used the Lion product?
Many thanks
Jonathan

I got a Sports shirt display case from these guys https://www.dreamkeepers.co.uk/football-display-case, very happy with the product, in fact I had it custom made as it was for a denim jacket, only problem with the jacket display case was it came on a pallet, so carriage was £50.00 , but it might be different for a football case

Apologies for the delay in replying and thank you for your advice and help. I've now spoken to Barry at Dreamkeepers who seems very helpful and appears to gave exactly what I need at a reasonable price. Crucially he can supply the cover on its own which allows a framer to make a custom made base. Thanks again, Jonathan
