Has anyone done a nameplate? - englandhousehold - 12-05-2012 07:30 AM

I did my son's name out of letterman scrubs and wondered what's the best way to display them on the way...I wanted to frame it but not sure how to go about it....any suggestions on how to secure them before the frame job?

I had some cards framed for my dad last year. In working with the framer I supplied the cards in penny sleeves and she did a great job mounting them in cutouts & matting so they don't move. I also opted for the high end UV protection glass.

I did one for each of my 3 kids. I just put each card in a snap holder and used the 3M poster removable wall strips. They have been up for almost 2 yrs now with no issues.

No clue. I just made sure to buy all of the same thickness holders, regardless of the individual card thickness so they all look "uniform". If the card is loose inside the holder, it really won't matter...still displays well.

Is that what you were asking?

I have the letters in the nameplates im working on done same way in uniform snap holders. Still trying to work on my kids names. Hard to find the letter Z for yankees. I have a handful of letters to finish off my 2 sons names but only looking for yankee cards.

Thanks for input. I guess I will order 9 same suit holders.
