Jersey Framing Recommendation?

Any recommendation for a nice jersey framing?

I attended Lunch With The Legends recently, featuring the one and only Jeremy Roenick. FINALLY got him to sign a jersey for me (been wanting this for years).

Now, I need to get it framed.

Michaels does a nice job from what I've seen, however, even with the 50% off coupons, it's like $400. Does anyone do it for cheaper, but same quality, or is that the going rate?

I've had a bunch of stuff framed at Hobby Lobby. Some custom, some standard, all of it was really, really nice.

I've usually been in the $100-$200 range for custom framing with the discounts...you'll likely be a bit higher than that with the size of a jersey.

im getting my signed, pacman track jacket, framed as we speak. i went to the great frame up and it was $226 and some change. i dont have a picture yet because it is not done but, for a description, it is basic black metal frame, tacked and pressed to a black matte board. and in terms of the size, it is a full track jacket, just with the hood folded and the arms crossed along the chest...in a display case of course. they had a bears jersey in there for a demo and i though its looked great for the price.

they also had an option for around $5oo ish...and that looked simply incredible...but obiviously, it is pricey.

i WOULD NOT go to michaels. i had my jordan wings poster framed there a few years back and on top of paying around 350 dollars (after the 50% off,) it came out looking like garbage. granted this was a poster framing and not a display case but, i was not impressed with the quality whatsoever.

more than likey i will have the prodcut within a week or so. i will post up pics so you can get an idea.

Please keep me in the loop on how it turns out. Did you get the UV glass with it? The place I'm going to display it has a lot of exposure to natural sunlight, so I definitely want to have it protected.

I had an autographed poster custom framed with all of the bells and whistles, including the UV coating. For anything that will be in sunlight for any length of time,especially fabric like that, I'd get it for sure.

I had a bunch of stuff done at Great Frame Up for my garage. Pretty happy with it except the price, but it is what it is.

It is what it is....

Spoken by a guy who has a lot of pennies!! :2 cents::2ce nts:

After all my research, I've pretty much came to the conclusion that good framing costs good $. No way around it.

updated

so went to pick it up and it looks nice for the most part. but i told them i immediately noticed some mistakes and that they need to make some corrections. here i am recommending them and now, i have to wait for them to make the adjustments...figures...

-tacks on the shoulders need to be symetrical
-left sleeve needs to NOT taper up
-sleeve cuff needs to be adjusted

if this was done, i would have been very happy. hopefully once they fix it, i will be!
