FINALLY GOT IT DONE!
Some of my regular customers will remember last autumn when my supplier's building burnt in a fire, leaving me scrabbling for replacement frames and supplies. One of my customer's frame had been been left over discontinued stock and I could not find one similar in colour, shape or price. He was very disappointed but I told him that, maybe this frame wasn't meant to be and that we would find a better one for the project; his father's service medals and memorabilia.
I began a nearly six month search for a replacement frame by pouring through catalogues, online sources, calling framing companies until this April when I found one very similar. He approved immediately and I finally finished his project.
It is always an honour to frame medals for veterans, especially ones from the First and Second World War. It is like touching greatness. This project required a seven hole collage mat for the picture, name plaque, balmoral, leather dog tags, Cape Breton badge, Pictou Highlanders badge and war medals.
If you have veteran's medals and memorabilia to frame, remember I always offer a 10% discount on these special projects.
