I probably went through with 8-10 test pieces (testing different engraving, leaf and paint techniques) before I got the look I desired . . unfortunately my stock certificate got a bit moist during a move. I tried flattening it by many methods before framing to no avai

Very cool frame. Nicely designed. What CNC did you use?

Very nice! Too bad about the certificate getting messed up a tad. I didn’t notice until you mentioned it.

This caught my eye because of the Packer ”G”!
Just plain beautiful! I like the design as it is a perfect “home” for the certificate!

I am in the process of doing the “G” emblem for a friend of mine in Illinois, yes another one in Illinois, and I live in California! Yes, there are Packer fans everywhere!

You can send me the certificate and I will try to flatten it … it will probably take a couple of years!
