A Key that worth millions!

Believe it or not, this key worth 2 millions. That's why my client, Mr. Lim is so keen to frame it! Mr. Lim just bought an old bangalow in Georgetown. He paid 2 millions to the previous owner and he was just given a key to enter this bangalow. So,  he told me it is worth 2 millions. ( Oh, I see!! )

I order to make this frame stand up. I mounted it on top of the acrylic blok. I use a brass leaf finished wood frame to match the brass colour key. Would look better with fabric background...but again my client has his budget for that.....

Anyhow, the overall presentation is OK... vintage key with modern classic frame! My client love it!

Sport Memorabilia

Sometime shadow box framing isn't anything special but the contents is pretty cool. The content  always make me thinks of other matters...
I framed a lof of sports related stuffs like golf putter, golf ball , tennis racket, ping pong racket, ..... But one of the hottest item that Malaysian love to keep in their memory is badminton racket. I noticed that most of the Malaysian's love this game, like me. History also tell us that Malaysia was once the super power house of the game. But just pity that Malaysia has not produce any world class players for quite sometime. The only good player that we have in our country currently is Lee Chong Wei.  I am sure many of us are wondering when we can have another Datuk Lee in the next Olympic in London ??? :(

Double Glazing Framed Wedding Photo

I was asked to frame a wedding photograph with the double glazing (sandwich) method again.  I wondered so many young ladies like this kind of framing lately. They said they see this kind of `framing' in bridal house and it looks trendy and modern! ( yeah...yeah...of cause I know..and it was seen in the market quite long ago...what so special??..) 

Anyway, as a responsible framer I will tell them it is not recommended as the glass will directly touching the photo, the moisture will make the photo stick to the glass eventually. In most cases, they dont really believe me and insisted the bridal house recommeded it. So, normally I will take some protective measure by encapsulating the photo first before I frame it. At least I could ensure the photo has longer life span. I am wondering why most of the bridal house in Penang never care about their customer's interest and always mislead their customers.
