Did that frame just go “vroom-vroom”?

This autographed racing suit was one of the trickier items we’ve ever had to frame, to be sure. We approached it the same way we would if it were a sports jersey – we sewed it to the mat that you see behind it. But that took some real problem solving because of A) the thickness and weight of the suit, and B) all the folding to make it smaller. It didn’t have to be folded, but the customer didn’t want it full size. We did the sewing in stages as we folded it. All of our little behind-the-scenes tricks ended up working out great. Sorry, no pic of the finished product, but it looks just like you see in the last photo, with a simple black shadow box frame around it. And museum glass, of course.
