Bank of America Marathon Montage 2013

Speaking of Marathon Runners...

One of our clients had come in to have us mat her Katubah so that she could have it signed at her wedding and keep the document protected until it was time to frame it. A friend of hers, Alicia Rumchak, had come along with her. A publisher we know had just brought in some posters for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon that was coming up in a week and Alicia, being a runner, saw the poster and decided to frame it along with what she hoped to bring back from the marathon: A participation medal and other memborabilia. Here is what we designed for her:

Our shop manager, Dana, created a mat board platform that follows the shape of the draped medallion and ribbon. The runner's number bib was dry mounted onto a piece of red-core black Crescent Brite Core mat board CBR34921 and it has a riser behind it to give it a 3-D look. The Marathon comemorative poster is matted in the actual shadowbox base.

The frame used is a Larson-Juhl 210285 Black Tribeca Cap about 3/4" wide and an inch tall. The base shadowbox was made from Crescent 5579 Etched Black mat board. Glass is Conservation Clear (filters out 99% of harmful u/v rays).

The posters, incidentally, are in stock and still available for sale at $29.95.
