    FRAMING A FOOTBALL SHIRT

    HOW OR WHERE IS THE CHEAPEST PLACE TO BUY A FRAME TO FIT A FOOTBALL SHIRT IN. MY LOCAL SHOP CAN DO IT FOR £80 QUID BUT SURELY THERE MUST BE A CHEAPER OPTION

    I framed one myself about 18 months ago using a frame from Wilkos - cost about £6 for the frame, and looked good. I cut a triangular piece of card to wrap the shirt around, and then fixed this to the backing board of the frame.

    Give it a go. If it looks okay, fantastic. If not, its only cost you £6 and you've still got a frame to use for something else :thumbsup:

    thanks for tht mate i was thinking about this, but the shirt is alot thicker than paper so thought it wouldn't fit? was it a tight squeeze?

    Hi,

    The frame was quite thick, and had the spring-type clips on the back so there was quite a bit of give in it. I don't have a picture though I'm afraid, as I ebayed it quite a while ago now.

    It was a silver frame, a bit bigger than A3 I think.

    Sorry I can't be of any more help.

    any pictures of the top in the frame mate? if you dont mind. im thinking of starting a wee collection and having them all framed.
