Over the years, we have had many customers that have collections of sporting memorabilia that they want to update.
An interesting example was a customer whose father was a jockey. The customer had a number of framed pictures of her father that were made when he won a race, these frames often included hand written details of the horse, the race and owners etc. As the pictures had been collected over a number of years, the framing, layout and inscriptions were often different, making an odd mix of styles.
The customer wanted a simpler solution, so we designed a coordinated layout, scanned the original photos, restored and reprinted them and retyped the inscriptions. The end result was a single frame, containing all the photos and a brass plate with the jockey’s details.
Where originally only one sibling could have the old frames hanging on their wall, or the group was divided and shared between siblings, now they can all have the opportunity to display their beloved father’s achievements.
