What is the best way to display auto'd jerseys? Where do you get them framed or how do you fame them? I am just looking for some tips or suggestions.

Thanks,
Charlie

when i got my Ewing Jersey I got it professionally framed ran me about 250. It was worth it. Ads for my Alex Rios jersey im leaning towards a shadowbox as I don't want to pay more for a frame then the jersey. Shadowbbnoxes look really nice. I idont know if you have an AC moore by you but the somehtimes run a special where you can get a frame for 130. It is a cabinet frame which looks pretty nice aswell. It really comes down to how much you want to spend

One thing dont ever go to Hobby Lobby not sure if you have one but I took one there and they messed it up. So I had to spend more money to get it fixed.

Thank you both for the input. The funny thing is I was thinking about going to Hobby Lobby this weekend to check out the framing options. Thanks for the tip there as well. I will have to check it out a little more and figure out what I want to spend on the frames.

Thanks,
Charlie

Yeah if you want them to look good go to a framing shop. It will cost ya but it will be worth it.

You may also want to check out Michaels if you have one of those where you are from for your professional framing options.

Also, they are a good store to look for frames or shadow boxes. They generally have good sales on them, sometimes up to 50% off. I have a couple that are in shadow boxes that look nice, they take up wall space though since they stick out.

Here are a couple of my shadow boxed jerseys :

Yeah they are big both of mine are 38x46. The Montana was done at a frame shop and the Portis at Hobby Lobby. You can see the difference.

If you don't mind me asking what did it cost to frame each of them?

Thanks,
