Did you know the first ever Father’s Day was held on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington? Most countries around the world that celebrate the traditional day hold it in June, while some hold it on different dates throughout the year. In Australia, is it always the first Sunday on September, which means it isn’t far away! September 1, 2013 is the all-important date!

The celebration of fathers and male parenting began out of respect for the single father of Sonora Smart Dodd, who raised six children on his own after his wife died during the birth of their sixth child. Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

For more than 40 years fathers around the world have been celebrating the day of honour, receiving mugs, photos, ties, socks and sports memorabilia – and that’s where Dawson’s Picture Framing can help.

If you are looking for some creative inspiration this Father’s Day look no further, we have it covered. And it won’t just be a surprise for Dad on the day he receives it, but forever, because even Kochie knows sporting memorabilia is an investment just as much as other assets.

In fact, he says: “You purchase it with the expectation of it increasing in value in the future. Simple as that.” Well said Kochie! You can read more from the money man in the know here: http://au.pfinance.yahoo.com/our-experts/david-koch/article/-/14643367/making-money-on-sport-memorabilia/

So instead of filing up his sock draw with more of the same, why not give him an investment and something he can proudly show off. Here are Compliments Picture Framing’s top five tips when it comes to sporting memorabilia:

1 Anything goes

It’s easy, whatever sport your Dad is into we can frame. Tennis, golf, football or boxing. The list is only as short as your imagination. We can frame anything!

2 Boxing gear

Gloves are big-ticket item, especially if they are signed by your Dad’s favourite boxer. We simply create a shadow box to house them in and usually add some other “creatives” to help show it off, such a photo or plaque.

3 Picture perfect

Always take a picture of the sports star with you when you bring your sporting memorabilia in to be framed. Or even a logo of the team. It will help set your framing masterpiece apart from the rest and give it some oomph. We can also add a plaque that states who it is, when the event took place and where.

4 Jerseys? Sure!

There is actually a knack to getting this right and it doesn’t involve any glue! The jerseys must be secured in place, but there are special ways of doing this so it is not ruined, in case you ever want to take it out of the frame. Your sporting memorabilia is in good hands at Dawsons Picture Framing.
