Step 1: Gather Materials

Step 2: Prepare the Shadow Box

  • Disassemble the shadow box frame by removing the back panel and glass or acrylic sheet.
    • I like to go with this case here found on Amazon. Its large enough for all my jerseys, it has 98% UV Protection Acrylic, it comes with 2 hangers and you can lock it.
  • Place the mat board inside the frame, ensuring it fits securely.
Step 3: Position the Jersey
  • Lay the jersey on a clean, flat surface.
  • Arrange the jersey within the shadow box, ensuring it’s centered and displayed as desired.
Step 4: Attach the Jersey
Step 5: Add Additional Elements (Optional)
  • If you have team or player photos, memorabilia, or plaques, strategically place them around the jersey on the mat board. I usually get my mat board from Amazon.
Step 6: Seal the Shadow Box
  • Clean the glass or acrylic sheet to remove any smudges or fingerprints.
  • Place the glass or acrylic sheet back onto the frame and reassemble the shadow box.
  • Secure the back panel with provided fasteners or screws.
Step 7: Hang the Display
  • Install the jersey hanger onto the back of the shadow box as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Use a level to ensure the shadow box is hung straight on the wall.
