Over the last several years jersey framing has increased in popularity...
and so has the frame design!
Gone are the days of throwing a jersey between two sheets of glass with a thin black frame. Today design details brought in with colour, mats, photos, plaques, intricate fabric folds and gorgeous frames are part of the jersey framing scene.
These personality boosters make your jersey as unique as the meaning behind it. To help with your next jersey's frame design we've put together this easy step by step guide.
1. Consider the story behind the jersey
Whether your jersey will hang in a business or in your family room, consider why it's important to you. When you look at it, what do you remember and want to include as part of the overall message? In this case, Planète Courrier sponsors different athletes, so including their business card along with a photo of the athlete they sponsored completes the story.
2. Where will the jersey hang
A frame design should work with its surrounding decor. You might want to pull from colours in your space or textures and materials from existing wall art. If the jersey is being framed for corporate purposes you might want to include brand colours.
3. The framed jersey should look amazing on its own
For any frame design the art (or jersey) not only has to look incredible in the space but should look purposeful with the details of the frame design. Often a frame designer will highlight certain tones from the art and carry them to the mat or mimic district textures from the art in the moulding choice.
The pink and black mat traces around the jersey, photo and business card openings compliment the jersey without distracting from it.
4. Add in those details!
This is the fun part! Jersey framing does not have to be boring! Subtle details by stacking frames with different textures or by incorporating aesthetic cuts in the mat give your jersey that designed, custom feel.
