Medals Collection Custom Framed No. 1 and 2

Medals No 1 Loose
Here is an example of some sports medals a customer recently brought in for framing. They wanted a nice clean display when finished.

Medals No 1 Complete
To the left is the finished product. Care is taken to give a balance appearance to the collection. All works is carry through to the back where it is sewn in place.

Medals No 2 Loose
An even more jumbled lot of medals.

Medals No 2 Complete

Here we see a more formal approach to display. Same method as above and it is important that all frame corners are glued and set in a clamp prior to any corner fasteners. If this precaution is not taken, the frame could rack (distort) over the years. With this framing method the work can handle some abuse and the medals will never fall off as they will if they are simple glued or taped in place. Always fasten through the back. Sewing is the preferred method.
