How The Shirt Framing Service Began
We are changing the way sports memorabilia is framed, by offering a nationwide framing service, with local business values, all at a great value price.
Fed up of paying extortionate amounts of money for memorabilia framing when the quality wasn’t up to scratch, we knew we could do better.
The Shirt Framing Service was born from an idea that began in 2014, and by 2016 it was a registered limited company and had an e-commerce website accepting orders from all over the UK. Those first two years from initial idea were a period of self discovery and struggle. We conducted a large amount of R&D all to discover if our idea for a nationwide framing service would work and if it could be a viable business.
When we found out that it did and it could we never looked back!

Payment is accepted by debit card, credit card, bank transfer or cash. We accept orders from anywhere in the UK. This is truly a nationwide shirt framing service.
We can also now export framed shirts and sports memorabilia to Ireland and Europe. Contact us for bespoke shipping costs and further details.
The products listed on our website are not an exhaustive catalogue of everything we do and we have in the past completed a number of bespoke commissions for various customers. If you can illustrate or describe your idea to us we can make it happen. Just contact us with your idea for more information and a quote.
Our online catalogue of shirt framing services however does represent more than 95% of our work and are the most popular options. In fact there are so many options available from coloured shirt backgrounds, to medal hangers that if you can’t find something suitable we would love to know so we can include it in the future!
What Happens When You Order
You select and purchase a framing service product from us. Once the order is placed and paid for we will send you a booking form within 24 hours of checkout. The booking form will be in your order confirmation email if you checkout online.
The booking form is designed to collect and discover information which isn’t automatically collected during the checkout process. It also gives you an opportunity to confirm the order details and make any last minute changes or corrections.
Next you need to send us the memorabilia to be framed. On the booking form you will find our office location (which can also be found at the footer of the website). You will need to send the booking form within the same parcel as your shirt or other item of memorabilia to us at this address.
We strongly recommend using a signed for/tracked or recorded service with adequate insurance cover. You are responsible for getting the memorabilia to us safe and sound. After it is in our possession we will take care of it until it is back with you.
Once we are in receipt of your shirt or memorabilia we will professionally frame it as per your instructions on the order and booking form. Once framed we send photos of the item to you to approve before we ship the now framed memorabilia back to you.
We carefully pack your frame in our custom made boxes and send on a next day service through DHL. This is insured and you will receive a text and/or an email letting you know when it is on the way.
We have now completed 300+ framing projects across the country using this method for a number of collectors, enthusiasts, fans and even professional players.
We are more than happy to answer any further questions about the framing service, delivery process or any other concerns you may have. Please message us on our contact form here.
