Walkerworks Jerseyboxes!

We frame a lot of Jerseys.   Mostly, they are hockey jerseys but of course we’ve done other sports, like Rugby.

But mostly we frame a lot of hockey jerseys.  It might be because we are Canadians and hockey is just really BIG here.

It could be because we live in our Nation’s Capital of Ottawa, home of the Ottawa Senators.

Or it might be that our shop is only a 5 minute drive away from the Canadian Tire Centre, where our Ottawa Senators play, so a lot of our clients are hockey fanatics.

Plus we have a pretty huge minor hockey association here so there tends to be a lot of hockey going on.  At certain times, it feels like we live in Hockeyville, Canada, although Stittsville hasn’t been declared as such…yet.  (But we are hoping!!   Go to Kraft Hockeyville to see if we are amoung the top 10 nominated communities for 2015.)

Anyhow, we frame a lot of Jerseys and by this point in time, we’ve got it down to a science.

When several years ago we realized that Jersey Boxes were something we’d be doing again and again, we designed our very own custom Jersey Box at an awesome package price.  Our custom box goes for $360 plus hst. Priced out at our retail prices, it should cost more like $575.

Our Walkerworks Jersey Box                                   …. a $575 value for $360 !

Here’s how we do it:

To mount your Jersey and make it look good, we use a microtach tool that shoots plastic fasteners (much like what holds price tags onto clothing, but different!) and our sewing skills.

First we cut out a custom acid free foam board form for the jersey which we then insert inside to hold the Jersey’s shape.  Then we spend some time fussing with the arms, etc. getting them just so, showing everything the way you want it (back or front, crests on shoulders, etc) and tacking everything in place.

Then we mount the formed jersey with special heavy duty thread onto its backing.   Everything we use to mount your Jersey is easily undone and does not harm it in any way.  If sometime down the road you needed some cash and wanted to sell your game worn Alfredsson on Ebay, we could take it out of its frame and hand it back to you in the same condition that we first framed it in.

After it is mounted, we install your Jersey in a black acid free foam board shadowbox with UV inhibiting glass in a deep black wood lacquered frame.  On the back, we install “wall buddies”, a great staircase hanging system that allows you to hang your Jerseybox safely and easily on your wall.

 

For those wanting more in their box, we can incorporate more into our standard 32″ x 40″ Jerseybox.

Subban jersey

Or perhaps you want your Jersey in a smaller frame because you love hockey so much and frame so much hockey stuff for your Mancave that you are getting low on wall space.
