A shoe! Gesundheit.

When a customer brought us this soccer team project, we weren’t worried in the least. We’ve done our share of multi-item shadow boxes before. When he took out the soccer shoe and asked if we could include it, we said, “We can frame that!” After he left, we said, “We can frame that?” Ah yes, even for the professionals some tasks can be daunting. But a big part of custom framing is problem solving and getting clever in the craft department. One of our full-time framers, Jamie, is a wizard with such challenges. We don’t wanna ruin the mystique of how she got it on there, but believe us – it ain’t comin’ off.

We’ll post the results after it’s completed. This last pic will give you an idea of what we have left to finish. That shadow box frame will have to be put together and made to look pretty before everything is fit. Whew!

    I had the opportunity to visit the Milford store, where the piece is being framed, and sneak a peak. You guys sure got creative with how to attach all that stuff! It looks great; can’t wait to see the finished product.

      Thanks for noticing, Jane 🙂 We had a lotta fun figuring it out – planning to have the results up by the end of the week. Things changed a little bit along the way – you’ll see.
