This is a game stick used and signed by Scott Hartnell, #19 of the Philadelphia Flyers!!!! Shhh, it's a gift to a sweet young hockey fan. A family friend of the boy was able to get it from the player at the game--however that is done.
The client and I worked on a terrific design that has texture, depth, team colors, and drama.
Above the stick is mounted to black suede mat. I used two different methods to make doubly sure these stay put. Passed a stress test.
Below is completed design before glass went on. Two mats are raised above the surface, using an insert box I made out of acid-free foamboard. I lined the inside of the box with black suede. The frame is a 2" high black shadowbox with slender silver pinstripes.
Finished box is nearly five feet tall!
A refined, sophisticated sports box? Yes indeed!
