Over the past year, we’ve been spending a lot of time at home reorganizing. You may have even discovered old memorabilia while digging through your closet. Perhaps you have some cherished items that are collecting dust in a corner someplace, and you want to display them. Whether it’s sports jerseys, event tickets, or other collectibles, an experienced framing company can give your memorabilia the proper care it deserves! Here are a few reasons you should consider framing your mementos sooner rather than later.
To Keep Them Secure
If your memorabilia is not stored correctly, it can become damaged over time. Colors can fade, tickets can rip or tear, and polished items can lose their luster. When your mementos are left out, they are in danger of being spoiled by water damage, dust and curious hands! Placing them in a frame behind glass, on the other hand, will protect them for years to come. Your mementos are important to you, and that’s why you’ve kept them for so long. If you let them sit around and deteriorate, you may regret it later.
To Look Back on Cherished Memories
Collectibles are meant to be valued and most of all, seen! Those sports jerseys remind you of your college days. Your concert tickets bring back memories from that fun, laughter-filled evening with your sibling. When we view our displayed souvenirs, it’s like going back in time: we can practically see, smell, taste and touch everything again. If your favorite memorabilia items are tucked away in boxes, you won’t be able to look back on those beloved times. Of course, you’ll always have the memories themselves, but memorabilia reminds us in a way that feels tangible and intimate. Hanging these on the wall alongside your other heirlooms and keepsakes will keep those good times fresh in your mind. We could all use that these days!
To Increase Their Value
You might want to hold on to some memorabilia because it has a high value. Your autographed vinyl record, signed baseball, or first edition book will be worth more in time. If they become damaged, you’ll degrade their value. Unfortunately, it’s a fact. If someone chooses to buy one of your collectibles in the future, they’ll want to know how it was stored and taken care of. Moreover, they’ll be able to tell if you didn’t treat your mementos in the correct fashion. Hanging memorabilia in a frame is the only way to ensure it will continue to hold a high value if you choose to sell it later.
