My customer received this autographed Sidney Crosby hockey jersey from his wife as a gift to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.


One of the challenges when framing sports jerseys is to deal with crooked lettering.  In this case, there was a lot of bulk black fabric around and between the lettering of the name "CROSBY".  When I stretched out the name to try to smooth out the black fabric, it became apparent that the letters were sewn on crooked.   I had to stitch around each letter to try to tack the letter in place in a straighter fashion.

 


A light grey coloured mat was chosen as the background and to line the sides of the frame. Tru Vue's conservation clear glass, with its 99% UV protection, was chosen to help slow down fading of the jersey and signature.
