Great care has to be taken when preserving items of memorabilia. At Campbelltown Framing Gallery we offer the very best creative solutions to show and preserve your work. Our combined sixty years experience places us in a league of our own. Often we are asked to re-frame memorabilia that has been ruined by framers with little experience and it’s what you don’t see that can cause trouble later on.
Football Jerseys. These need to be stretched and fastened so they hang perfectly. A common mistake is to staple the edges of the jersey to a mat board with is then stuck to an MDF Board (Medium Density Fibreboard). The problem here is that MDF attracts moisture to itself and in time mould can set in. The staples have penetrated and destroyed the fabric and then gone rusty. Re-framing is not difficult but is very disappointing to see an item of special significance destroyed by careless framing.
Cricket Bats. Presentation is the key. Recently we re-framed a signed Donald Bradman bat. The original framer had penetrated the bat with screws to hold it in place. At Campbelltown Framing Gallery we don’t destroy any item to preserve it.
Boxing Gloves and Trunks. We are able to frame these using 3D box frames made to measure. The box can hold many items of significance.
At Campbelltown Framing Gallery our frames are cut to suit your work and not the other way around. Our computer programs cut mats to the finest detail – this means circles and squares are perfect every time. The right memorabilia framing can change a simple item with great sentimental value into a masterpiece.
When framing memorabilia we know it’s special. That special item represents many years of dedication and commitment and the right frame will present that story for many years to come.
