    Beautiful job, but as someone looking for information it was useless.  It would have been nice to explain just what you were doing, what you were using, why you were doing it that way, etc…  Remember, there are people out there (like myself) who are complete morons when it comes to framing a jersey.  Always assume your audience are idiots; too much information is much better than too little information.

    Nice video. I have been watching your videos for a while now. Very informative and helpful. Do you have any suggestions on a hockey jersey? They are heavier then the jerseys I have seen you do, as well they have full sleeves, and many of them have rather large shoulder patches on them making them awkward to position.

    I wouldn't actually recommend putting wire on such a large frame. In my experience over the years, using wire on such pieces will bow the frame and cause damage to the walls. Often, the glass and mat have literally fallen out, especially when using the Polystyrene moulding. I find it much safer and logical to anchor your frame by still putting the heavy weight D-rings on, in the same spot, just face them up instead of in, and use more than one point of gravity to hold the awkwardness of the frame to the wall. The flatter is lays on the wall the better, and with wire, you're just asking for it to loosen and bend, and even break. Just my experience while working for many frame shops in the Baltimore area. Hope that helps!

    Hi Sam, as with most things experience and training reduce the risk. Most of the risks involve poor choice of materials or insufficient knowledge of archival framing techniques when it comes to protecting signed memorabilia. A good place to start is with a basic frame making course like easyhomeframer and then study some of the advanced techniques. Qualified framers use tested methods that preserve items so the least risk is choosing a reliable framer but if you desire to learn you will succeed

    The size of frame is usually determined by several factors but if you mean the rebate size then a common choice is 40"x32" because this is the largest size from a standard mat board but we use many different sizes and profiles of frames. If you just need a sheet of glass cut to size and you are in Brisbane, Australia you can get some cut whilst you wait at Fix-a-Frame in Mt Gravatt. You may choose a conservation glass to prevent fading. It is best to discuss this with a qualified framer. Thanks

    Thanks for the positive feedback. Will be posting some more videos soon once our new camera arrives. We had one of our cameras stolen with the receiver half of our microphone set up attached so it has slowed us down a little. Back to making more content soon. Thanks again, David

    Thanks for the positive comment. Full training for all types of framing is given personally in framing classes and some video training is inside our membership sites. Just been working on a new framer's club which will launch later this year where detailed basic and professional level techniques will be published for members. The wise framers are the ones who continue to learn and be mentored and professionally coached. People should remember just buying a cookbook doesn't make you a Masterchef

    Ps thanks for posting the great vid so people can see real framing in action. The negative comments aren't justified in my opinion. There are many little tricks average folks could absorb from it even though it is not a complete step by step tutorial. I dont think they realize it would be a super long video to show a complex project like this in detail.

    Hi ArtMechanics, the space is around 25mm in this frame. We refill our spray bottles with a home mix of glass cleaner. Most cleaners consist of water, alcohol, ammonia and something to control the streaks. The commercial cleaners also are coloured blue to make people feel better. Blue is a clean colour…joke. I'm personally pretty anti-aerosol type cleaners but a local company to us makes a killer aerosol glass cleaner for UV glass otherwise I've found the TRU-Vue cleaner good on all products

    i thought you shouldnt use windex on uv glass? btw the space between glass and fabric look adequate to me. but it is hard to tell in the vid. things i have read in pfm magazine suggest 1/4" to 1/2 inch as adequate.
