Fastframe has over 30 years experience framing service memorabilia.
We often frame medals, badges, photo’s, certificates, rank patches, and hats together. Uniting these items in the one frame creates a a snapshot of a person’s life and also a beautiful heirloom for the family.
Medal Mounting services to ensure that your medals are correctly presented and preserved, never to be forgotten.
When we mount your medals your medals can be lightly cleaned or polished on request, re-mounted in either Court Mounted or Swing Mounted.
When the Medals are Court Mounted they are hand stitched securely to a backing board which is wrapped with the medal ribbon. They are firmly secured to ensure they do not contact other medals in a damaging way. This method is the only approved method for current serving members. We use the very best materials for producing the backing boards and a continuous length of the best British ribbon.
As the title suggests, Swing Mounted Medals are suspended from a brooch pin and using stitches, the ribbons are secured to the pin and are able to swing freely. This is the better known method of mounting; however it is the most damaging to your medals as they constantly rub and strike against each other when worn.
All ribbons used are of the highest quality. The backing boards used to court mount medals are individually manufactured for each set of medals and are made from UV stabilised Acrylic. We also guarantee that no harmful glues or adhesives are used. All adhesive products (tapes) are 100% acid free, which means your medals will never be damaged by any material we use; in fact they will help to preserve your medals!
