As a sports fan, you are immensely proud of your memorabilia. Your sports memorabilia may have been purchased at auction, or painstakingly gained by obtaining autographs. However you acquired your prized possession, it is paramount that you get it framed to enhance its appearance, allow you to prominently display it in your home, whether this is in Perth or elsewhere, and to protect it from damage and retain its value.
Here’s 5 major benefits of getting your sports memorabilia framed.
When you have something that is irreplaceable such as sports memorabilia, you need to protect it from damage, wear and tear and loss. Exposure to dust, sunlight, heat or other environmental factors can cause discolouration and damage to your items over time.
Quality framing will prevent damage and preserve the mint condition of your memorabilia for years to come. However, it’s important to remember that not all framing is equal. Cheap and nasty pre-made frames can actually have a negative effect on your memorabilia over time.
Instead, we recommend investing in a custom made frame with special UV-resistant glass. At Portfolio Picture Framers, we use high quality, durable materials including UV-resistant glass and acid free matt boards to ensure your prized possessions stay in great condition.
Our frames are handmade in our Perth studio so that we can control their quality from start to finish. When you come to us, you can be sure that you’ll get a sturdy and durable frame that will protect your items, look fantastic and stand the test of time. Cheap, mass-made frames really can’t compare.
Trading and collecting sports memorabilia has become a massive industry. Some memorabilia is extremely rare and can be worth quite a lot of money. In many cases, a memorabilia item can rise in value as it gets older.
However valuable sports memorabilia can quickly lose its value if it is damaged, worn or faded. You risk reducing your item’s value by leaving it scrunched up in a box, exposed to harsh sunlight or floating around the house where many hands can touch it.
When your memorabilia is framed in a quality custom frame it is protected from damage. That means framing your memorabilia can retain its value, and possibly increase its financial worth over time.
What’s more, a quality, well-designed frame will also add to the value of your item. If you wish to sell your item later on, it’s worth getting it framed now to ensure you can get a better price when you sell. In general, memorabilia that is displayed in a custom frame will sell higher in Perth and other regions also.
Sports memorabilia comes in all shapes and sizes. If you really want to show off your item in the best light, it’s worth getting a custom frame that has been made specifically for that item.
Settling for a sub-par, mass-produced frame can detract from your item instead of showing it off. But when you choose a custom frame, you can have precise control over the design, style, shape, materials and composition of your framing.
Is someone at home worried about how your memorabilia will fit in with the existing decor? By choosing a custom frame, you can hand pick a style and colours that will complement your home decor. Whether you plan to display your framed memorabilia in the living room, home office or man cave, a custom frame will make sure it looks fantastic wherever it’s placed.
If you’re not sure what will look best, our framing experts can walk you through the options and give our professional advice about what would look great for your specific item.
Got more than one item to display? That’s not a problem when you get your memorabilia custom framed. Frames can be made with a wide range of styles and techniques to ensure all the important items are shown off in the ideal way.
For example, you may have a jersey and some grand final photographs that you want to display together. Or perhaps you want to frame a signed cricket bat and ball side by side.
Whatever items you want to frame, our sports memorabilia framing experts can help make sure they’re displayed in an attractive way.
