Re: 2 Chevron Towers

Hi David, hope you are keeping well. These look in very good condition, I had the 8 sided Nielsen a couple of years ago, great for getting a lot of chevrons on display if you havent got a lot of floor space :)
See you at the Guild BBQ on the 22nd David ?
Cheers,

Hi, much to my embarrassment, I have never framed football boots ... there, I said it, so embarrassing. :oops: Below is a photo of the mount and how I need them displayed ( signatures on show ), I'm creating a shadow box but need to attach boots to a back board, I was thinking perhaps through the la...

Taking Photos Remotely from Ceiling mounted camera ?

Are there any digital camera enhusiasts out there ? Years ago I setup a Canon Powershot on the ceiling and linked it with a cable to my laptop, the Canon software allowed me to zoom in with the lens and take pictures whilst viewing the picture on screen, great idea but bit messy with trailing cables...

Re: Spring Fair

Hadn't seen this posting before Christmas, I just discovered today that neither LION or D.J. Simons will be there, what a shame,
I'll be there though, I'm visiting a friend that weekend in Sutton Coldfield so thought I'd pop in and have a mooch round, it gets me out of the house ... :clap:

Tower of London Poppy to frame, anyone else ?

I had a customer call today to say he had ordered a ceramic poppy from the Tower of London display. He asked if I could do a 3 sided glass box/frame, I'm going to try and talk him out of this idea, I was wondering if anyone else had been approached about one of these poppies ?

Re: Logo on the car, FINALLY !!!

Offset the whole cost of the car? :shock: Maybe I need to stick a business card in the window and get back on to my accountant. I bought this car 2 years ago and I thought then that my logo would look good on the wide flat doors, not too sure why I left it so long though, it's a funny looking littl...

Logo on the car, FINALLY !!!

I can't believe it's taken me quite so long but I finally pulled my finger out, got in touch with a local car graphics company and today picked up my little Toyota with my logo on it, it's not perfect but it's a great first attempt :clap: It's all vinyl cut and I was amazed at the detail on the logo...

50 Cigarette cards to mount : (

I have just done a search in the forum about mounting cigarette cards, couldn't quite find what I wanted, hence this post. I don't frame a lot of cigarette cards but recently I have had a few. Cutting the mount is not a problem with the CMC but the customer wants to see the reverse of the 50 cards i...

Re: Baby hand and foot prints - nightmare to mount !

Well I finally finished it off and although it was a bit of a pain to do and probably under priced, I'm quite pleased with it ( see below ). I decided against a foamcore cove box, I actually built a wooden tray for the 2 clay plates, I threaded wire through the plate hangers already on the plates, t...

Re: Baby hand and foot prints - nightmare to mount !

Thanks ever so much for all your thoughts on this, there seems to be quite a number of options doesn't there ? I do like the idea of making use of the sticky plate hanger on the back of the plates and I do want to get some of this super sticky double sided Foam sticky tape ? WHERE CAN I GET THIS ? I...

I'm really struggling with this job, it's been in the drawer half completed for the last few weeks, as you can see below, it's going to look nice when finished but how do I mount these heavy clay plates ? hands1.jpg As you can see, they don't have a flat back and are quite heavy, they came with the ...

Re: Close gallery and use as a framing showroom?

Too many people take so long thinking about the changes they are going to make that before you know it years have passed and they haven't actually made any progress at all and it's very easy in business to get stuck in the rut of the everyday and not step back and take a good look at your business....
