Military & Services
Military medals are regular framing projects, primarily from the First and Second World War. The addition of photographs, badges, details of unit and dates of service can greatly enhance the display.
Mount colours are typically, green, navy blue and air force blue, as well as the usual neutral creams and off whites. Regimental colours can also be introduced as part of the design.
All work is carried out to conservation standards, items are pinned, stitched or encapsulated, we try to avoid it, but where adhesives have to be used they are water-based and reversible.
We also frame many police retirement gifts. A great item to give to a colleague as a leaving gift.
