Well, I certainly have been blessed with new customers from out of town in the past few months... all for hockey jersey shadowboxes!
My customer brought me an autographed Joe Sakic hockey jersey, along with a picture. To celebrate his birthday last year, he and his wife attended the season home opener of the Coloroda Avalanche hockey team. My customer has been a long-time Joe Sakic fan, and was fortunate to meet him and have his jersey autographed. What an amazing birthday memory!
The frame was built from a classic black shadow box moulding from Larson-Juhl’s Confetti line. The mats were conservation mats from Peterboro Matboard. A narrow black bevel fillet from Michelangelo Moulding was cut in reverse to form the mini-frame around the picture of Joe Sakic. Tru Vue’s conservation clear glass was chosen for its 99% UV protection.
My customer was thrilled with how it turned out and is excited about framing his Nathan MacKinnon jersey soon.
