Hey guys, I know many of you are collectors. I was at the rally and got a Giants jersey signed and I'm going to framing it.

I want to know whats the average cost that it would be to frame the jersey?

If you want to get it framed professionally you are looking at around $200.

I am doing it professionally and they quoted me around $500 with a 50% off coupon.

seems pretty high. I had one done and I would say it is more like $200.

Yeah I thought it was high too...I was expecting around 300. They did work for me before that came out amazing. The original quote was over a $1000.

I had mine done by a memoribila shop in a mall in Atlanta. I had also checked with a totally non-sports related framing store. They were competitive, but the sports store really knew what I was after. </P>


I have had it for several years and it has held up fine. There's a bit of glass reflection in this photo, it looks great.</P>

Yes

How much did you pay for that if you don't mind me asking.

Go to the store, see how it's done, buy the materials and frame it yourself. 500 dollars... are you kidding me?

It doesn't quite work that way.</P>


Frames themselves are expensive.....I hope you realize that $200 INCLUDED the frame and the matting, everything.</P>

I do. Which is why I think it's incredibly stupid to pay 300 to have someone take a couple screws out, fold a shirt properly, then screw them back in.

That's exactly who I am using. I also went to another store for a quote who gave me the same exact price. so..... At least it will last forever.

Thank you everyone for your help!

They have the cases you can buy and hang the jersey in. I bought one after 42, it's nice.
