It smells of Championships and rich Mahogany . . . It’s “genuine” Mahogany with a Poplar insert that I applied gold leaf to. The corners were laser cut and then I applied gold leaf. 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 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!
