I had the pleasure of framing an autographed Zach Fucale hockey jersey along with some memorabilia from the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship. My customer and his family attended the World Juniors and saw Canada win the gold medal over Russia (Canada 5, Russia 4) with Zach Fucale in nets.
The extra memorabilia included a signed program from the Gold medal game which was floated above the bottom portion of the jersey and had its own ‘mini-mat’. A wristband and swipe card were both encapsulated with archival clear polyester film and displayed above the shoulders of the jersey.
A combination of two Roma Mouldings were stacked together to form the shadow box frame. Peterboro Matboard’s conservation mat, Teakwood Black, was chosen for the mat. We wanted to bring in a red accent colour, but there wasn’t a red mat that matched the red jersey fabric well enough. Instead, bevel accents were made from strips of 8-ply Artcare mat and hand-painted (4 coats) with acrylic paint that matched the jersey. Tru Vue’s conservation clear glass was chosen for its 99% UV protection.
