Trophy ribbons and rosettes are worth displaying with pride!
A framed rosette is great gift idea for the athlete in your family, a form of support and an encouragement for future accomplishments.
It can also serve as a customer confidence tool:
if you are in the field of training or breeding dogs, horses or livestock, a framed rosette will show your customers that you are brilliant at what you do.
These are some simple examples of shadow boxed trophy rosettes.
A SHADOW BOX is basically a deep picture frame that is designed to hold and display an item. You can frame jewellery, clothing, seashells, cutlery, coins, stones....you name , we frame it! I have framed baby teeth and christening gowns...the most exotic (or the scariest ) piece that I've mounted into a frame was a piece of a missile for the Armed Forces. We all have our stories to tell.
If you are hanging on to a special item that is memory of a happy event in you live, why not have it put in a frame so that you can enjoy it every day?
PROFESSIONAL PICTURE FRAMING MATERIALS are designed to protect art and objects from environmental hazards, dirt and light that could fade and discolour.
Conservation quality picture glass is only available through a professional picture framer and I cannot emphasize enough the importance of using nothing but that . The intention is to protect the piece from light. ANY LIGHT. And your items WILL be exposed to light when they are hanging on the wall, even if the room has no windows at all.
It is important that the right kind of adhesives are used, -using the wrong kind of clue or stapling can do a lot of irreversible damage, so it is the best to trust your treasures to a professional.
I am more than happy to give free advice should you want to frame your pieces yourself, and I am always ready to cut mats and glass for creative people who take pride in their own creations. Framing a bunch of keepsakes from a family holiday could make a nice weekend family project, a gift that just keeps giving!
Now, let's see what we have stored in that shoebox behind the photo albums...maybe it will make a nice, one of a kind art item for the family room?
Wishing you creative day dreams,
your picture framer,
