Tami Phillippi: Hi, I’m Tami with Frame Minnesota in Eagan, where we do custom picture framing. Today, we’re going to talk about jerseys, but we do lots of different things here. From memorabilia to fine artwork to sports memorabilia, vacation art, lots of different things.
We even do Packer stuff, a little bit grudgingly, but we do Packer stuff. We use acid-free materials. We use UV glass that keeps things from fading and discoloring. We don’t use staples. We don’t use Velcro. Velcro, always the adhesive gives.
The Velcro holds really nice, but that adhesive on your jersey is going to leave a big yellow mark after a period of time. And that period of time isn’t 20 years, it’s two or three.
When we put an insert inside, it’s either acid-free mat board or acid-free foam core, both of which help things last a really, really good long time.
Got a whole bunch, a whole book full of logos. We’ve got a Timberwolf, Twins, and Vikings logos. This Vikings logo is really sweet. It’s very detailed. We’ve spent a lot of time on the local teams getting very, very detailed ones and getting them right in our mat cutting system.
These are all cut on a computerized Mac cutting machine. They’re cut by hand and oftentimes reassembled and glued back together. So they’re really an artisanal product. We’ve done them for everybody. We’ve done them for Sibley High School. We’ve done them for St. Thomas Academy.
People like to put engraved plates on their jerseys. They like to throw in photos. We can help with all of that. Sometimes people come in, they’re just not quite sure what they want. In fact, a lot of people are not quite sure what they want, and we’ve just done so many of them that we’re happy to help.
I think that people that come to me are looking for a quality job. They’re looking for it done right. By done right, what I mean is they’re looking for a jersey that’s going to last a lifetime. I’m here and there’s always little tweaks that need to be made to things, and we just really put care into it.
It’s what our career is. We’re just always trying to personalize it, make it a little bit different, make it look like it’s not just something that you bought off a box store where it’s all completely standardized. We’re really always trying to look for, what can we do to customize it? What can we do to make it fit into your house?
What can we do to make it fit into your life?
