Hello from M33

Post by Tu12pou » Thu 15 Oct, 2020 3:50 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm new to the framing business and looking for some help and advice.

I want to learn more about framing sporting memorabilias, mainly rugby and football Jersey.

I would like to work along someone for a few days a week to learn the art of framing. Based in the M33 area.

Much appreciated

Sam

Hi Sam
Welcome to the forum, there are many different ways of framing memorabilia, it's an interesting niche to get into, which, if successful, can demand high prices, ask away, someone hopefully will know the answer or know where you can find it, good luck.

Jan at Framers Equipment in Northampton runs a day course on shadow box making and shirt framing. Worth having a chat with him.

My friend Jim Miller is the King of Shadow box framing education in USA. He lectures frequently at WCAF show in Las Vegas, and other shows.

I bought 2 copies of his latest book The Complete Guide to Shadowboxes and Framing Objects and gave them to overseas framers. They both later told me how helpful they found it. And they were already good at that type of framing.

I see LION stock it

I have visited distributors and framers in 89 countries - no two are the same.
